|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Clancy first session today was focused on settling in the kennels and then loose lead outside. We want Clancy to relax before leaving the kennels. To do this, we ask for a sit while entering. If Clancy stands up or jumps at the door we say “ah ah” and close it. This teaches Clancy that those behaviours achieve nothing. Once we got inside the kennel Clancy remained in a sit while putting the lead on. However, when we started opening the door Clancys excitement increased. This was a case of opening and closing the door several times until Clancy settler and remained in a sit until the door was completely opened. Once outside we practiced loose lead, Clancy did really well with this, although a little distracted at times it was easy to redirect attention back to us. Keep working on this, don’t give in and have patience while teaching manners.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For his second session today Clancy worked on his place skill with a calm dog present. The other dog was also working on place but focusing on duration so there was minimal movement. This allowed us to send/release Clancy to/from place without him becoming vocal towards the other dog. Clancy did really well with this, we could walk all around the bed without him breaking position. Once the other dog left we used both places for Clancy. This meant we could send him between the two to keep the session really interesting! Keep working on his place skill, he is doing really well to settle.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Clancy’s last session today we had him working on his drop skill but focusing on having him drop to our side. Having them on our side makes it easier incase we need to deal with approaching dogs/people. If he is in front of us we might step on him and have less control of what he does. He did well with this, we re-introduced a lure to make sure he stays to our side. Keep working on this, it can be a bit of a hard habit for them to break.||Focus: Back to Basics||B+|
We recommend your next step should be…

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.
