|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For his first session, Arlo focused on further developing his skill 'hold' with repetitions. Arlo performs well with hold, but he can still struggle with duration. Throughout this session the trainer encouraged him to hold the pipe longer with a continuation marker ‘good’. Arlo successfully held the pipe for several seconds before dropping it, as the session progressed he slowly held the pipe for longer and longer. Next time we would like to see Arlo hold the pipe independently. We suggest continuing to practice this at home.||Focus: Duration||C|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his second session, Arlo focused on further developing his ‘loose lead walking’ skill, with repetitions under distractions (training within the cattery and around the kennel area). Arlo performed very well, he can lose focus when in a new environment but redirects his engagement quickly. When engaged Arlo performs amazingly, ignores distractions and is in the correct position. Next time we would like to see Arlo remain engaged with his trainer despite new and distracting environments. We suggest continuing to practice this at home in both high and low distracting environments.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his final session, Arlo focused on further developing his ‘drop’ skill under high distractions (within the kennel block). We focused on this skill to help further proof Arlo’s drop. Arlo performed well, he was initially distracted and struggled to drop on the first two repetitions, but with some guidance he quickly began to drop and maintain it well. Next time the trainer would like to challenge Arlo with further distractions. We suggest continuing to challenge Arlo at home with high distractions.||Focus: Distraction||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.
