She did Okay but she has a lot to learn, she only knows sit and come. She is very food oriented and was constantly trying to get to other dog owners to get their treats

It's quite hard trying to work one on one at home but if we are to get through the course we have a lot of homework to do

Our trainers told us that the only way to keep her focused in that situation is to have the best treats in the room, hopefully that might work  spinner smile 

She sounds like she is doing well for a novice too.

Good on you.

I was told to try the one on one training half an hour before normal feeding time as it makes them more for focused.

Well I have been trying that, I have done it after the evening walk and before tea. Gosh she is very hard work! In a week I can take one step back when telling her to wait before she comes to my hand for the treat.
Down is impossible but we will keep working on it.
She gets so excited that she is getting a treat that she cannot concentrate on what she should be doing and as she is so obsessed with food I don't know how to manage that.

When I come downstairs in a morning and put my jacket in to go to work she starts running up and down and spinning around near the kitchen door as she knows I give them a treat as I leave.

Have you ever used a clicker? I wonder if that would work rather than just treating.
