|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Sampson’s day began with his ‘place’ training, specifically sending him to and from with distractions; dogs and tennis balls. At first he was quite distracted and wanted to interact with everything, but with the trainer using “ah ah”, he realised he was doing the wrong thing and started going to place beautifully. While on place he would try and break when the tennis balls came rolling over, but he resisted the temptations, which was amazing!! The next step for Sampson would be to increase his distance while having these distractions.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Next up, Sampson did some 'loose lead' walking in the cattery, facing all those pesky cat distractions. He did fairly well, but would get distracted if they made particularly loud noises, but the trainer was easily able to regain his focus. Keep up the awesome work at home and slowly introduce higher distractions for him to test his engagement more!||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Lastly, Sampson worked on his 'drop' skill inside the classroom with dog distractions. Sampson did really well with holding his drop, even with other dogs training in the same room, he did not try and break once. He simply just watched them do their thing. Since he did so well, the next step would be to have him in a higher distracting environment (outside for example) and test if he can still withstand those doggy distractions. Awesome work today, Sam!!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
