|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In Bentleys first session we trained place with distractions. We had another dog on place so that was his distraction. At the end of his session I took him outside he was abit nervous and distracted so when he was looking at certain things I would reward him by saying “yes” as he wasn’t taking food. Bentley was really well behaved and didn’t take much notice of the other dog. He knows his place really well. In his next session I would like to see if we could do place out side as I want to keep doing place with him because he knows it well and he’s comfortable doing it. Training this at home is easy maybe change it up abit go out the front of your house and put his bed on the driveway. You know what to do with place but just have abit of fun with it and see where his boundaries are.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In Bentleys second session we trained drop outside. Getting him used of the traffic going past and used of the farm animals. We went for a walk around the training shed past the farm animals and got him to drop, every time he looked at the animals I would reward him. Bentley is a well trained dog, just gaining his confidence around other animals and humans is what we’re trying to work on, taking it slow and steady. In his next session I would be working on this gaining his confidence with everything we can. Training this at home again I’m sure you know but to not push him to hard I would just get him out the front and put him in drop, get closer and closer to the road.||Focus: Duration||B+|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: In Bentley third session we trained paw, he was distracted by other dogs and weren’t taking food at this stage, also think he was mentally and physically drained. I know Bentley knows paw next time I will do it with less distractions around. Next session I would love to work on this as it’s a fun little training skill.||Focus: Repetition||D|
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.
