|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In Alphas first session we trained lose lead outside, this skill will help with walking him and with different distractions as well. Alpha was distracted at first but it didn’t take him long for his attention to come on to the trainer, he behaved so well with lose lead. Next session I would still like to work on this maybe add some food around him for more distractions to see how he will go. Training this at home is a great way to get his attention on you, hold his lead in one hand and food in the other, if he goes to pull one way walk the other way till he stops pulling if he looks up at your reward him, by saying “yes” and food.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Alphas second session we trained place with distractions, we had another dog on place at the same time and we started of with a few toys. Towards the end we had a box full of balls we rolled passed him he didn’t break once. Alpha knows place well and was very well behaved through the whole session. Next session again might had some food in front of him and see what happens. Training this at home is easy if he has a bed use that as place, preferably one that’s lifted of the floor, once he’s on place get some toys and throw them in front of him to see if he will break, if he does correct him by saying “nah ah” and pull him back until four paws are on the bed.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: In Alphas last session we trained paws up, something fun to end the day with. Training this is just basically with no matter what distractions are going on your gaining his focus the whole time. Alpha is very smart I had a stool that I would get him to put his paws up on, every time I asked he would do it. Next session I would like to do this but maybe with some distractions going around in the room. Training this at home is easy grab a chair and tell him “paws up” or “up” once he does it reward him with the word “yes” and food see how long he can stay there for.||Focus: Distraction||A|
We recommend your next step should be…

B: Great Work (80-89%) I mostly understand, Almost neat & complete! Needs practice in some areas. Mild distractions
C: Well Done (70-79%) Some good progress. Needs work, but on my way. Still learning. Low distractions.
D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
