|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For Freddie’s first session today we worked on his place skill, focusing mainly on his impulse control. He did really well with this and had lots of fun also. To do this we had him start on place and then found something that he was interested in, this was the tug toy. We were able to throw it around and he would stay put until released where he was allowed to play with the trainer and toy. Once the trainer stopped playing he was told to go back to place where he needs to calm down. He did this really well and plonked himself down and waited patiently until the next game.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: For Freddie’s second session today we worked on his paws up skill. We used a plastic pod/step and lured him up onto it. The aim of this is to get his front two feet on it and for him to remain there until released. Since he did it straight away we worked on building up his duration. To do this, we lured him on and kept rewarding him until we used a release word “break,” and threw a treat for him to go and get. He really enjoyed this skill and has no problem with coordination or confidence with new surfaces.||Focus: Duration||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For Freddie’s last session today we worked hard on getting some focus while practicing loose lead walking. We started in the classroom where there weren’t so many distractions. Every time he wasn’t pulling or was looking at the trainer he received a reward. We did this around the classroom for a little while and then progressed outside, he was immediately distracted so we moved back inside where he was much more engaged. We ended the session inside so he couldn’t self reinforce the pulling outside.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
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.
