|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Frankie started in the classroom practising around the other dogs in the room. Frankie paid little attention to them and stayed by our side. We then moved outside to continue the skill. Once outside, Frankie starting drifting ahead of her training, hitting the end of the lead multiple times. After a bit of repetition Frankie started walking next to her trainer more often. Frankie started to get distracted by a dog in the paddock nearby, but paid less and less attention to them as the lesson went on.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Frankie worked on her place skill, starting in the classroom. We worked by a few of the other dogs relaxing in their crates. Frankie paid no attention to them at all and smashed her place skill inside so we made our way outside the classroom to work on the skill with distractions. This resulted in Frankie stepping off before her release word multiple times. After some repetition, Frankie was happier to stay on the bed until given her release, passing down on the bed to help settle herself.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Frankie finished the day with her drop skill, focusing on Duration in the skill. We had a dog working right next to her as a distraction. At the beginning if the lesson, Frankie popped back up before her release a hand full of times. We put time into getting her to stay in the skill. After some repetition, Frankie happily stayed in the skill each time. We started to edge our way closer to the other dog, with Frankie bring interested in him, but only giving him brief looks.||Focus: Repetition||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.
