|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his first session, Arlo focused on learning the new skill 'around' with repetition under distractions (multiple dogs training in the classroom). We focused on this skill to help build engagement and challenge Arlo with learning a new skill. Arlo performed very well, he followed a lure off the bed and around a cone. This lure was quickly faded for the verbal cue 'around', Arlo loves this skill. Next time the trainer would like to introduce further distractions.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his second session, Arlo focused on further developing his skill 'bang' with repetitions. Arlo performed well, but initially required a lure to roll onto his back, this was quickly faded as the session progressed. Arlo loves this trick, once focused he performs very well. Next time we hope to reduce lure completely. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||C|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: In his final session, Arlo focused on further developing his skill 'Peek-a-boo' with repetitions and distance. We focused on this skill to begin training Arlo a recall. Arlo performed very well, he required a lure for the first repetition, but this was quickly faded to the verbal cue 'peek-a-boo'. Arlo can become distracted by his environment and lose engagement with his trainer, incorporating sits and drops help keep his focus. Next time the trainer hopes to begin adding distraction. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distance||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.
