|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Bella's loose lead walking session started when the trainer took her out of the kennel. Bella was very reactive to the dogs that were in the other kennels, which were of close proximity to her. Once in the class room she did take a little while to settle, however as the session progressed her engagement was awesome and she was walking very well on the lead. There were other dogs in the class room at the time and she ignored them well. Keep practicing her loose lead walking home, building the distractions slowly. Progress to the front yard once she is working well with the low level distractions.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Bella has a good understanding of the place command which is fantastic to see. At the time of training there was another dog being trained also. Bella did well although a little distracted by the other dog. She only broke place a couple of times and this was when the trainer took a couple of steps away. Keep practicing at home and pushing those higher level distractions if Bella is doing well with lower level distractions. If she is doing well in the back yard progress to the front yard.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Bella's drops are progressing well. Again she was distracted by a dog also training. However, because the other dog was at the other end of the room, Bella was still able to concentrate on what she was required to do. The trainer pushed Bella to hold position for longer periods of time, which she did well, only breaking a couple of times. Although generally Bella did well in the classroom, she didn't do well around the dogs in the crates and also in the kennels as they were much to close to her. The trainer would highly recommend an intensive board and train after seeing Bella around the other dogs in the kennels and classroom.||Focus: Distraction||C|
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.
