|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For session one with Sampson we started with the skill of loose lead in the cattery, by doing it in the cattery we are adding more distraction. To begin with he was very distracted and had pore focus, so the trainer added drops randomly to catch his attention and focus. By doing this Sampson started to pay more attention and had great focus with the trainer and continued to throughout the session.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For session two we practiced drops outside with dog distractions. Sampson began the session a little too excited and distracted although it didn’t take long at all before he started to settle and have full attention. We achieved this by increasing the treats while he was in the drop (controlled position) to redirect his attention to the trainer.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For the third session we practiced the skill of place using different distractions including food and dogs. Throughout this session Sampson did very well at going to place and his duration on place. Although food being around place tested his skills and he was very tempted. All being said he did very well and completed the session amazingly. The next step on from this would be increasing the distractions to improve his skill.||Focus: Distraction||B|
