|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Baileys first session was drops with greetings. The trainer kept a distance from people to start with to help Bailey be calm and to focus. This worked well and the first few times the trainer kept that distance to help Bailey nail that drop. As the session progressed the trainer got another staff member to take a step closer. Gradually the staff member got closer and closer until Bailey actually received some pats from the other person. By doing this slowly it will help Bailey to learn that people are just another distraction she needs to keep in the background and you are the most important thing in her life. Make sure you have treats handy and don’t rush in closing that distance between the other people.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Next up was loose lead walking and Bailey struggled initially as there were dogs nearby running. This revved Bailey up a little bit, but again creating distance and changing direction helped Bailey refocus. Make sure you keep walks short and treat it as a training session rather than a leisure walk.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Place was the focus of the last session and Bailey did a great job with this. This was done outside and although Bailey was distracted by the smells at first, she ramped up her engagement and even when released from place went straight to the trainer rather than having her nose to the ground. During the session Bailey broke a few times, but overall she worked really hard and was keen for the rewards! Way to go Bailey.||Focus: Distraction||B+|

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.
