|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Barney focused on further developing his skill loose lead walking around the pet retreat facility. We focused on this skill as he can be distracted by his surroundings and display the challenging behaviour of pulling. Barney was initially very excited to be training and showed little engagement. However, he quickly redirected his focus to performing well. When he did become distracted the trainer used his known skill of drop to redirect his focus.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Barney focused on further developing his skill drop with duration, under distractions. We focused on this skill as the trainers have noticed he can struggle to hold duration in his drop. Barney performed well, he initially broke when the trainer added tennis balls as distractions. However, with some guidance, he began to maintain it well. He successfully remained in drop while 50 tennis balls rolled passed.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final session, Barney focused on further developing his skill sit pretty within the classroom. We focused on this skill to further develop his problem-solving skills and build rear end awareness. Barney performed well, he followed a lure quickly to sit on his back legs. However, he does like to use his front paws for balance on the trainer. To reduce this we went back to basics and only lured him to raise his paws just off the ground. This worked very well.||Focus: Foundation||C+|

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.
