|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Diesel began his day with some ‘loose lead’ walking outside with a dog distraction. Diesel had magnificent engagement with the trainer and was not phased by the other dog at all, even though he was double his size! If you are having trouble with this at home, be sure to be the most exciting thing to him, entice him with treats and sounds. Keep up the awesome work though, maybe next time we can have more than 1 dog distraction!||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Next up, Diesel worked on his ‘foot tap’ skill, where he taps the trainers foot with his opposite paw. Diesel is a very smart boy and understands the task at hand, but he only showed interest in the trainers left foot, no matter how hard they tried to get him intrigued in the right foot. Diesel would only sometimes get frustrated and therefore whack the trainers foot with the same paw, but with his non-reward marker “ah ah” he realised it was wrong and tried again. In the future we want Diesel to be able to tap both feet, not just focus on the one. Keep up the awesome work at home though!!||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: To finish off, Diesel worked on his ‘place’ skill, being sent to and from with high level distractions; toys, food, balls, etc. He was a bit tempted with a tug toy, but did very well in resisting and went to and from place beautifully. Keep up the awesome work at home!! If you’re having trouble, go back to low level distractions and work your way back up!||Focus: Distraction||A|
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.
