|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his first session, Buster focused on further developing his skill drop around people distractions. Buster was initially excited to be training and struggle to engage with his trainer, he also struggled to respond to the drop cue. As the session progressed, he began to relax but continued to be distracted by the people walking past. Once in drop he held good duration despite the people distractions. The trainers will continue to work on his performance going into the drop as this is his biggest challenge when around distraction.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Crate Training||Comment: In his second session, Buster focused on further developing his skill crate, within the classroom. Buster was initially hesitant to go into the crate, he showed alternative behaviours of sit and drop. With some patients, treats and pats he slowly began to walk in. As the session progressed, he began to walk in without a lure, the trainer began to add the verbal cue crate he was performing so well.||Focus: Foundation||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his final session, Buster focused on further developing his skill drop with distraction. Today we challenged Buster with remaining in drop while the trainer brushed him, this is good practice for any objects that may touch or interact with him while he is training. Buster performed well, he did break drop three times initially but began to maintain it well as the session progressed.||Focus: Distraction||B|

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.
