Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Finn’s first session was place. The trainer decided to do this to help calm Finn down as he was super excited to be in the classroom. Because he was so excited he struggled to hold that place position with even the trainer not moving. However as the session progressed he started to settle more and thought about what he needed to do. The trainer was then able to started distracting Finn with the flirt pole. There was quite a distance at first but as Finn got better at holding position the trainer was able to come closer without Finn breaking position. At home make sure you are practicing place in different areas. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Next up was drop for Finn. Again he was up and down like a jack in a box. The trainer increase the frequency of the yes marker and soon Finn’s duration was much better. He did tried to bite when leash pressure was applied and he was barking at times also. This is because he is not liking the rules that surround this skill. The trainer blew bubbles over Finn as his distraction and he held position, which was an awesome achievement for him. It was great to end the session with him doing well. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Loose lead walking was Finn’s final session and although he progressed well inside he did struggle outside. The trainer worked in a very small area and changed direction when Finn pulled. This did start to get him engaged with the trainer but he was quickly distracted when a person came into view. We would suggest booking a private at this point for Finn as he is struggling with rules and boundaries. This will enable you to help gain the skills and knowledge to help Finn work out what is required of him within the household. Focus: Distraction C

We recommend your next step should be…

Book a Private session

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.
