|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For his first session today Arlo practiced his ring toss skill. We focused on lots of repetition and jack potted each time he got the ring on the pole! He managed to do this 3 times throughout the whole session, although accidental. We made sure to finish the session on a successful attempt, this way it allows him to think about what it was he got lots of treats for! The more accidental successes he gets, the more likely he is to associate it with the rewards!||Focus: Repetition||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Arlo’s second session today was focused on blowing bubbles in water. We started with throwing bits of kibble in a bowl of water, this encourages him to stick his nose in and find the treat. This helps him get used to the sensation of putting his nose in water. Arlo struggled a little at first and was just drinking the water but eventually he stuck his nose in and got the treat. Keep practicing this one, eventually the treat can be faded out and we will simply wait for him to stick his nose in the water.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: Arlo’s last session today focused on his middle skill but incorporating into walking. We asked him to drop and then got into position, when ready we then said “middles” and lured him through. Once he stuck his head through we immediately started walking, after a couple steps we would mark and reward him. He did pretty good with this, the next step will be to fade out the lure but for now just keep repeating these steps. He won’t take long to figure out the difference between a stationary middle (sit) and a walking middle.||Focus: Repetition||B+|
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.
