|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For Cookies first session today we worked on her loose lead around the kennel runs and outside through the carpark. Before we got her out of her kennel today we worked on her drops so she could calm down a little bit before starting. When we went to leave the kennel she would run out and pull on the lead so we spent a few minutes just working on her door manners and getting her to sit either side of the door while the trainer opened/closed it. She was super engaged after this and showed some awesome engagement with the trainer. To work on her door manners and to help her contain her excitement it is important to start her training sessions getting her to do some simple skills.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Cookie’s second session we pushed her drop skill with lots of dog distractions outside. We had her drop and a couple trainers walked around us with dogs. She would look at the dogs but as soon as the trainer said “yes” she would look straight back at the trainer and was super engaged. She did all sorts of tricks with the other dogs walking around her, it’s safe to say she isn’t bothered by these kinds of distractions, however, it’s good to keep testing her in these situations!||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For Cookie’s last session today we got her working on her skateboard trick. She was able to get three feet on the board but required a lure to get her there. After a few times luring her on she was much quicker to get three feet on and we could even start moving the board slowly. By the end of the session we were able to go from one side of the classroom to the either slowly pulling the board along! To improve this it just needs practice and the lure can slowly be reduced.||Focus: Repetition||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.
