Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In his first session, Cash was over-excited when the trainer approached and repeatedly jumped up at them and the door. He struggled to settle and would rush through the door as soon as it was opened. The trainer used the first half of this session to improve his door manners (not jumping up or pushing through the door). The trainer used his known skill sit while opening the door to help redirect his energy. This worked well, however, he does struggle to hold duration when in sit. Once in the classroom, we started to further develop his skill place. There were multiple dogs visible in crates, Cash initially reacted and struggled to engage with his trainer. As the session progressed he stopped reacting but continued to be distracted. Focus: Foundation C
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In his second session, Cash focused on further developing his skill drop within the classroom. We focused on this skill to help improve his decision making as part of his canine reactivity. Cash showed little knowledge of his drop skill but followed a lure well into the drop position well. Once in drop, he does struggle with his duration. Increasing his duration within drop was the focus of this session, Cash progressed well throughout the session but was easily distracted by people and outside noises. During this session another dog entered the classroom, this caused Cash to react and lose all engagement with his trainer. Focus: Foundation C
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In his final session, Cash focused on further developing his skill place within the classroom around dog distractions. We focused on further condition dogs. Cash performed well, he showed little knowledge of the place skill but followed a lure onto the bed, once on the bed he can struggle with duration around higher distractions. This is to be expected as he is still learning this skill. Although distracted by the other dog Cash did not react towards the other dog during this session. Focus: Foundation C+

We recommend your next step should be…

Consider an intensive Board & Train

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 DoneĀ (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.
