|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For Diesels first session we worked on his Roll over in a blanket skill. This skill allows Diesels thinking to be pushed as well as his concentration. As Diesel is still learning this skill, he is up to holding the blanket in his mouth for 5 seconds. While Diesel did well with grabbing the blanket he often struggled with his duration as he would grab it and then start to talk. As the session went on, he became more frustrated which was evident by the amount of noise the gorgeous boy was making. However, this is a good thing as it also shows that Diesel is pushing his thinking. The next step for Diesel will be to continue working on his duration so in future he can hold it while he rolls over.||Focus: Duration||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For Diesels second session we worked on his Quoits skill. This again allows Diesels thinking to be pushed as well as his concentration. Diesel did amazing during this session and even got the ring on the stick 3 times. As he has already progressed to picking the rings up, we pushed him to trying to get them on the stick. To begin with Diesel was getting very close however wasn’t quiet there, is he picked up the ring and moved further away from the stick he was told ‘nope’, this is so he knows he’s almost there he just needs to keep trying. If he moved closer, he was told yes and rewarded. Eventually he placed the ring on the stick, and he was rewarded heavily. The next step for Diesel will be to continue working on getting the rings on the stick.||Focus: Repetition||A+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For Diesels last session we worked on his loose lead walking outside. This skill is important as it allows walking without pulling or zigzagging. To begin with Diesel was pulling on the lead. To decrease this the trainer would turn from the distraction and if Diesel didn’t, he was told ‘uh uh’ and the trainer would continue walking in the opposite direction. After a few uses of ‘Uh uh’ he started to show excellent engagement. The next step for Diesel will be to continue working on his loose lead around high distraction areas.||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.
