|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his first session, Cadbury focused on further developing his skill 'place' with repetitions and distractions (another dog training within the classroom and human movement). We focused on this skill to improve his decision making as part of his canine reactivity. Cadbury performed well, he was initially hesitant to walk onto the bed, but with some guidance he quickly began to walk straight on. Cadbury has good duration but can struggle at times. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Cadbury focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with duration under distraction (another dog training within classroom, food and human movement). We focused on this skill as part of his decision making relating to his canine reactivity. He performed very well, he remained engaged despite the distractions, he broke place once, but with some guidance began to maintain it well. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B+|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In his final session, Cadbury focused on conditioning dogs while in a drop. We focused on this skill to help reduce his canine reactivity. Cadbury performed very well, he did not react to the other dogs (4 dogs training within classroom). Cadbury did break drop twice but with some guidance he began to maintain it well. Next time we would like to see Cadbury not break drop. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Conditioning||A|

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.
