|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Bailey’s first session was a new trick - bow. Because Bailey is good with her drops it was hard for her at first to not instantly drop as soon as she was lured. However as the session progressed Bailey started to work out what was required and was holding position longer while the trainer held treats near Baileys nose. Next time it would be good to be able to get Bailey to hold position and the trainer take her hand away. But great first session.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: Recalls were next up for Bailey. For this the trainer took her into the training area amongst the good sheep poo smells. Bailey did need leash pressure at first to come when called. The trainer didn’t say come until sure that Bailey was in fact going to come back to the trainer. This helps reinforce the word. The trainer also patted and grabbed Baileys collar while Bailey was seated. This is to get Bailey used to the fact you may put a lead on. She was not keen at first on this and would try to break position. But the more times it happened, she started to accept it and stay in position until released. Overall Bailey did well. At times needing leash pressure and other times coming straight away.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Loose lead walking with drops was last up for Bailey. She was a little distracted outside at first but while working in that small area and adding in drops helped keep her focused. She still had her nose to the ground at times but she checked in and it didn’t impede the walking so the trainer allowed it. It was another good session with Bailey! You are both doing a great job.||Focus: Distraction||B|

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.
