|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For her first session today Arya worked on her loose lead around dog distractions. We started off where we couldn’t see any dogs to help her settle and focus on the trainer. We quickly moved to the outdoor kennel runs where she could see and hear the dogs barking. The first few times we walked past she lost her mind a little so we increased distance a little bit and focused on really building that engagement. After this we were able to decrease space and eventually we could walk right next to fence line. We avoided dogs that were very vocal towards her as we want to set her up for success, we worked mostly around the dogs that were calm and just standing near the fence line. Arya did well during this session, she made good decisions and received plenty of rewards!||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Her second session today was by the outdoor kennel runs again, we decided to push her drop skill! This time we were able to work a little bit closer to the noisier dogs as we had her in a control position. Arya smashed this, she only had one occasion where she barked back but we were able to redirect her focus, create a bit of distance and try again. By the end of the session we were able to put her in a drop right next to the fence line and she was watching the trainer rather than the dog behind her! Keep pushing her drop skill, it’s great practicing in these environments as they are safe and controlled!||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: Since she did so well today we decided to finish off with something fun! We practiced her middle skill outside on the grass. This was also a chance for her to toilet as you mentioned she has been holding it. Unfortunately she didn’t go toilet throughout the entire session, even when we let her have a sniff around. Arya still required a lure to come through the trainers legs but did go into a sit automatically. Keep working on her middles skill she seemed to really enjoy this and her focus was great!||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.
