|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: To begin Cookies training we started with a long line and focused on her recalls. It was good to work on this first as she was VERY excited and easily distracted when leaving the kennels. Cookie responded really well to this considering the distractions and excitable state of mind so we started working in intermittent reinforcement (fading food rewards). At first she was not happy with this at all but it actually improved her recalls through out the session because she was constantly thinking 'will I get it this time!?'.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: We revisited around for this session and Cookie knew exactly what to do! So we slowly replaced the cone with a bowl of kibble. This was a challenge for cookie and her impulse control but she tried very hard ignoring the food. Once she was ignoring it completely the bowl was replaced with fritz! Cookie really struggled with this one but it was just too tempting for her and she even made an effort to walk a wider circle to avoid the temptation haha.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Cookie can get a little ahead of herself sometimes so we worked on loose lead around the facilities. To really challenge her we did a lot of pace changes. Cookie is a little pocket rocket so wants to get to the location as soon as possible! Trainer Jess' old lady walk was not impressing Cookie one but and she barked at her to hurry up. This would be good to focus on at home in distracting environments||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.
