|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For Gigi’s first skill we worked on being sent to place. While Gigi was able to go to place every time when next to the bed, she struggled when the trainer stood still at a small distance away from the bed and told her to go to place. However after a few repetitions she understood the idea and was going to place at a metre distance. While she was going to place she wasn’t doing it every time so the next step would be to continue to work on this distance.||Focus: Distance||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Gigi’s second skill we worked on her drops. She did extremely well with this skill. Even with a new environment, she remained in her drop for the asked duration and would drop on command every time. The next step for Gigi would be to increase her distractions by going outside.||Focus: Repetition||B+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For the final session we worked on loose lead walking. To start with Gigi was very distracted and was pulling on the lead. However she quickly started to maintain eye contact after only a few uses of the work ‘yes’ after looking at the trainer. By the end of the session Gigi wasn’t pulling on the lead and had excellent engagement with the trainer||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.
