|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his first session today the trainer did some loose lead walking training but with a bit of a twist! They worked him in the classroom today with other dogs in the crates however spread out across the floor there was toys of all sorts of varieties! The objective was for Beani to keep his focus on the trainer and not try grab any of the toys! To start he really wanted one of the balls however it didn’t take him long to start realising what was going on especially with the help of his yummy cheese! The trainer also did a bit of conditioning by not only walking but also crawling and getting on their knees and moving around! Doing strange little movements like this will help Beani keep close to the trainer even when strange things are happening.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Beani did great for this session! They worked on his place skill with a. Focus on sound distractions, for the session today he was theatres to a strong point in the corner of the classroom as the trainer would test different sounds and see if they could get Beani to break! He was so good with this today showing off just how cool and calm he can be! The trainer used a variety of instruments, voice changers and even tossed metal bowls on the ground to make a big clang! If he reacted this is okay! We are looking for his recovery and well he does with this, however none of this spooked him today, he held his cook around all the sounds and really impressed the trainer with his control!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: For his final session today the trainer worked with Beani on his recall. He was taken out to the concrete area in front of the classroom and had people walking up and down as distractions for him. He was great during this session really showing a good understanding for his verbal cue of “come” and recalling back 4/5 times almost instantly! Using movement and enticing Beani towards you with some hand moments also helps when higher distractions are around.||Focus: Repetition||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.
X: Not gradable, the focus was on Enrichment, Socialisation & Engagement.
