|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Bentleys first session today was about conditioning him to a new trainer and also his place skill. Since Bentley hasn’t worked with this trainer before we didn’t want to rush him. We sat outside near his yard and threw treats at him, he was a little bit vocal to start with but eventually lost interest and moved away. The trainer used this moment to approach the gate and get the slip lead ready. As soon as the gate was open Bentley strutted up and took treats, the trainer could get the lead on no problem and got him out of the yard. From here we didn’t want to push him so we worked on his place skill in the classroom while it was empty. Bentleys knowledge of place is really good, we could send him from a distance and also test him with trainer movements. After this we placed Bentley back into his yard until his next turn.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: Bentleys second session today was all about paws up. We could retrieve him from the yard much quicker and he wasn’t vocal at all! We tested Bentley on lots of different objects like, a large step, small plastic pod, squishy pods and more. Bentley struggled with the squishy pods a little because they feel really funny. Other than that, Bentley was taking treats the entire time and seemed relaxed around the new trainer. From here we moved straight into his last session.||Focus: Duration||A|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Bentleys last session focused on his drops outside. He had awesome knowledge of this skill and wasn’t bothered by the worldly distractions. The thing he struggled with the most was being able to drop facing away from the carpark. He constantly had an eye on the carpark as this is where he gets dropped off. Bentley pulled a couple times towards this area but we simply waited him out and went the other direction. Once he was walking nicely we practiced his drops. Bentley did well today with a new trainer, we didn’t want to push him too much considering he was already dealing with someone new. Go Bentley!||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.
