|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In her first session, Daisy focused on further developing her skill 'loose lead walking' with repetitions under distraction (training outside). We focused on this skill to build engagement and reduce her pulling. Daisy performed well, she was initially distracted by the outside environment, however with some guidance she began to redirect her focus quickly. She does lose focus by additional distractions including (birds or people). We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In her second session, Daisy focused on learning the new skill 'place' with repetitions under distractions (training while two dogs where in the classroom). Daisy performed very well, she responds well to the reward marker 'yes' and the place skill. She happily jumps onto the bed with minimal luring. She can struggle with duration, but with some guidance she began to increase her duration. The trainer began working on human distractions, including walking, running and kneeling in front of her bed, she performed very well. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||A|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her final session, Daisy focused on learning the new skill 'drop' with repetitions. We focused on this skill to build her impulse control and duration. Daisy performed very well, she followed a lure into drop well. She did require a high reinforcement schedule of treats (treats every 5 seconds) to remain in drop. This was quickly reduced to treats every couple of second. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|

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.
