|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Trick Training
|Comment: First session Aslan worked on his skateboard trick. Initially he was only wanting to put one paw on it and then sat for a treat but by the end of the session he was showing more confidence and following the lure up onto it, we were able to lure him to push the skateboard along for a couple of metres, his trainer kept their foot in front of the wheel to keep it at a slow pace while he grows his confidence around objects moving. Good job Aslan!
|Skill learnt: Leave
|Comment: Aslans second session we worked on his leave it. We started with a few pieces of kibble in our hand and quickly progressed to a handful of kibble on a plate. Starting with it on our lap and when he sniffed at it we said leave it and rewarded him with Fritz when he moved away. By the end of the session we were able to progress to the plate being on the floor and having him stand near it and asking him to leave it. He can be a bit cheeky when walking past it going for a sneaky nibble but is showing great progress, keep up the great work!
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: Aslans final session we started to work on spin but he was really struggling with his engagement and wasn’t super interested in his treats at the beginning of the session. The trainer worked on his send to place as Aslan was responding well to the verbal cue even though he was quite distracted. Aslan began engaging a bit better throughout the session but was still a little off which could have been due to the weather. We ended with a bit of play for the last couple of minutes.
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.
