|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Crate Training||Comment: For Freya’s first session we worked on her roll over skill. This skill is good for building confidence and pushing their thinking. Freya did really well towards the end of her session. As Freya is still learning the skill we are using a lure to get her to rollover. This consists of getting her into a drop and then pushing the treat into her shoulder. To begin with Freya was standing up when the treat would get to her shoulder however after a few repetitions she started to follow the lure all the way and roll over. When she did rollover she was told ‘yes’ and rewarded. The next step for Freya will be to continue working on the foundations of roll over to get her more comfortable with the action.||Focus: Repetition||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For Freya’s second session we worked on her skateboard skill. This skill is good as it teaches confidence and makes them focus. Freya is very confident when doing her skateboard skill however as she is so confident she struggles to slow down and instead just jumps on the skateboard. This session was spent trying to get her to move the skateboard on her own. This was done by using a lure in front on her once she had her front paws on the skateboard. Freya did well however at times she would just step forward on the skateboard instead of moving her back legs. If Freya moved her front legs on the skateboard she was told ‘nope’ and was then reset so she was in the middle of the skateboard. The next step for Freya will be to continue working on her skateboard skill getting her to move it on her own.||Focus: Repetition||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Freya’s last session we worked on her drops outside. This skill is important as it allows you to put them in a controlled position when you need to focus on something else. Freya did really well for majority of the session however at times she wouldn’t drop when asked. If Freya didn’t drop when asked to she would be told ‘uh uh’ and put into her drop. If she did drop she was told ‘yes’ and rewarded. The next step for Freya will be to continue working on her drops outside as she wasn’t dropping 100% of the time.||Focus: Distraction||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.
