|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Frankie’s first session was conditioning to the classroom and the yes marker. The yes marker is a reward marker. We say the word yes when a dog does what it’s asked. And then we give a treat. The yes marker needs to be charged to the trainer spent some time saying yes and just giving Frankie a treat or pats. She was to distracted to take many treats this session. The trainer introduced Frankie to place as well in this session. This is a good skill to help with impulse control and jumping. She did quite well with this first exposure to this skill. Going forward the time Frankie stays on the place bed is something that will be worked on while other distractions are around.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Frankie’s second session was drops. A good strong drop helps with manners and is good in emergencies when you need your dog in a controlled position. Frankie really struggled with this. She is not taking treats so using a food lure wasn’t going to work well. The trainer got Frankie to drop a couple of times from a sitting position but it is goal to work towards as the drop will help with jumping.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Final session for Frankie was loose lead walking! She did a great job. The trainer started in the classroom and when Frankie was doing well the trainer went out to the car park. Frankie pulled a little bit but the trainer kept changing direction and working in a very small area. Frankie was quite engaged with the trainer and did less pulling as the session went on. At home practice in your hallway and change direction when Frankie pulls go the other way.||Focus: Distraction||B|

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.
