|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: For Cadbury’s first session today we had him working on his touch skill. Since he was keen to just lay down on the job we worked on getting him to touch the trainers hand at all different angles. He took a while to figure out what we were doing but he eventually worked it out. He would quickly turn to touch the trainers hand and then back around for the treat and repeat! We started moving the hand close to the rope for the bell. Eventually he was tapping the rope with his nose as well as the trainers hand. This can eventually be changed to just the rope, since he was adamant on laying down it made it a bit difficult to get him to mouth the rope so this is a good way to transition from hand to rope.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his second session today we worked on his drop durations in a highly distracting environment. We got him into position while another dog was being very vocal in the classroom. He was really focused on the trainer and didn’t seem bothered at all by all the fuss. We even managed to spell out his name with food right in front of him without him breaking position or trying to eat the kibble! He is such a good boy and drop is definitely one of his strongest skills!||Focus: Distraction||A+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his last session today we worked on his loose lead walking outside. He was very engaged with the trainer and was checking in regularly which is awesome. He pulled a couple times towards a tree to smell so we changed directions then eventually worked our way back around, put him in a drop and then released him to have a sniff. We made our way to the Halloween photo spot where we got him to drop and stay there while he had his photo shoot. He did so well being outside with all the distractions!||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.
