|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For Evie’s first session we worked on her place skill with distractions. This skill is useful as it allows you to send them away from you as well as teaching them to settle in a spot. Evie did really well with this session and only broke place a few times. When she did break, she was told ‘Uh Uh’ and put back onto place. Evie was even able to remain in place while a bucket of balls was dropped. The next step for Evie will be to use people/dogs as distractions for her.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For Evie’s second session we worked on her skateboard skill. This skill is useful as it teaches them to focus on a task as well as pushes their thinking. It also helps to improve confidence. Evie did really well in this session. As she is learning the skill she was lured onto the skateboard with a treat. To begin with she was rewarded for stepping onto the skateboard with one paw, but she quickly picked this up and we progressed to two paws. The next step for Evie will be to start moving the skateboard.||Focus: Confidence||A|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Evie’s last session we worked on her drop skill. This skill is important as it allows for her to focus on a task instead of creating her own. It’s also a way of decreasing jumping behaviour. We worked specifically on Evie’s duration with distractions. We started with low distractions (stepping away from her) and then worked up to walking a circle around her. Evie did well and while she did break a few times, with the use of ‘Uh Uh’ she quickly returned to her drop position. The next step for Evie will be to continue working on her duration around distractions.||Focus: Distraction||B|
We recommend your next step should be…

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.
