|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her first session, the trainer focused on developing her skill 'skateboard' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to continue expanding Cookie's trick menu. Cookie performed well, she was initially hesitant to interact with the skateboard, but with lots of treats she quickly began to touch it. Using the 'paws up' command the trainer encouraged Cookie to push the skateboard. Cookie successfully pushed the skateboard several meters without a lure. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her second session, Cookie focused on further developing her skill 'handstand' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to challenge Cookie and help her achieve her next trick title. Cookie performed very well, she began on a step, with a lure she quickly goes into a handstand position. As she was performing so well the trainer challenged her with completing a handstand on a tree. With a lure and lots of encouragement Cookie slowly began to walk up the tree with her back legs. The trainer was very impressed with Cookie in this session.||Focus: Foundation||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her final session, Cookie focused on further developing her skill 'drop' with duration under distraction (dog, people and toy movement). We focused on this skill as Cookie was struggling with her drops. Cookie performed very well, she broke drop once but with some guidance quickly began to maintain it well. Cookie successfully remained in drop for 30 mins only breaking once. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||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.
