|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Cadbury focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead' with repetitions under distraction (training outside with another dog in close proximity). Cadbury performed very well, he walked in a great position and showed no signs of reactivity towards the other dog. Next time we would like to challenge him further with multiple dogs training around him. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his second session, Cadbury focused on further developing his skill targeting with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to challenge his brain while resting his body. Cadbury initially struggled to interact with the spoon as he was distracting by the classroom environment. As the session progressed, he slowly began to redirect his focus and begin touching the spoon. Next time the trainer would like to see him ignore the surrounding distractions.||Focus: Foundation||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his final session, Cadbury focused on further developing his skill 'drop' under high distraction with duration. We focused on this skill to build his impulse control surrounding dogs in close proximity. Cadbury performed very well, he did initially break drop twice, but with some guidance he quickly began to maintain it well. Next time we would like to see Cadbury not break drop despite distractions. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home in a range of different environments.||Focus: Distraction||B|
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.
