Arlo did very well today and kept good engagement throughout the majority of his sessions, only getting distracted by new dogs entering the classroom.
It was a PLEASURE training with your pooch today and we look forward to continuing to help you achieve your goals, skills and improve your relationship.
Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Today Arlo began with the ‘skateboard’ skill. He successfully was able to place a paw on the skateboard with the use of a lure, but once the lure was starting to fade away, Arlo got confused and didn’t perform the skill. He maintained good engagement until more dogs entered the classroom, that’s where he began to lose focus, but he quickly regained once the lure was brought to him.||Focus: Confidence||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Arlo’s second session was red light green light with drops. Although Arlo dropped on command, he was not excited about the skill and only stayed at a semi quick walking pace. He did not show any interest in any toy used either. Arlo really struggled to get "revved up" this session therefore was difficult to do this skill.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: To finish off, Arlo revisited his ‘middles’ skill. He did exceptionally well and kept great focus throughout, although, once different angles were added, Arlo got a little confused and sometimes did not perform the skill correctly. In the future, we would like for Arlo to be able to perform middles from a variation of angles and distances without any struggle.||Focus: Distance||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.
