|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his first session today the trainer worked on Archie’s basic obedience skill of loose lead walking and his drop. He was very excitable today and had a lot of energy, it was a bit of a challenge to get him focused and so they had to work with him in a very low distraction environment and work him up, he made some good progress by the end of the session but is still struggling a little bit with his drops especially around distractions.||Focus: Manners||C|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For his second session the trainer contained his basic obedience training and do some place with Archie. This is one where he knows the basics but again is struggling around distractions. So today the trainer just focused on keeping Archie on place around distractions, when he broke without being released he was brought back to the place bed, he was rewarded for every 5-10 seconds longer he stayed on place. Eventually he was able to hold a decent time but still needs some more work on his engagement and his distractions.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Desensitisation||Comment: (RLGL PLAY) For his last session the trainer worked on some impulse control with Archie focusing around play! They had a tug toy and they would “activate” the toy with lots of movement and excitement with Archie, once he was latched on and tugging the trainer would then “deactivate” the toy and stand very still and ask for the command “out”. The trainer was very impressed with this session as Archie didn’t need a treat at all! The reward of play was high enough value for him to really start to listen to the command and he really impressed the trainer with his ability to stop play and get into a sit!||Focus: Manners||C+|
We recommend your next step should be…
A: Outstanding (90 – 100%) I understand my training, Neat & Complete! Ready to move on to higher difficulty & distraction
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.
E: Unable to Progress. Needs major focus, seek further options to assist.
X: Not gradable, the focus was on Enrichment, Socialisation & Engagement.
