|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: First session for Chase was drop. He did struggle to stay in drop and wanted to follow the trainer when she moved around him. As the session progressed he did improve although the trainer squaring down caused another couple of breaks. By the end of the session Chase was holding place much better. Chase also didn’t want to go in a crate today and really held back that no amount of treats were getting him. So the trainer didn’t want to push it so popped him on place between sessions and he was great. Although wanted to get off when the trainer said break with other dogs. But he soon worked it out and was happy on place while trainers Trained other dogs around him!||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Second session was middle. Chase really doesn’t want to go through the legs and goes into a drop. So instead of treats the trainer turned it into a bit of a play session and ran around with Chase and used a bit of lease pressure to get him through the legs and then just patted cuddled used the fun voice and made a big deal of it. This was repeated quite a few times and Chase was certainly starting to feel a lot better about going through the trainers legs. Certainly a work in progress.||Focus: Repetition||C|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: Next session the trainer took Chase up through the kennels. He was really nervous and although he did do what was asked he was clearly nervous. The trainer took him outside to the grass and Chase decided the smells were to good to listen to the trainer. Using spin and the lure of food helped get a bit of focus back. But again more distractions for Chase in the future. He also met a couple of new people today and although he didn’t want pats from them he tolerated them being near him. So that is a win!||Focus: Desensitisation||C+|

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.
