Gryffin focused primarily on his treat manners today, putting a bit of time into it n through out each lesson. We slowly upped the criteria for his skills, making him work ab bit harder from his treats. Gryffin as always had a big smile on his face throughout the whole day, bubbling with optimism
It was a PLEASURE training with your pooch today and we look forward to continuing to help you achieve your goals, skills and improve your relationship.
Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Gryffin focused on his treat manners for the first half of the lesson as he started trying snatch the treats right as we started working. After a little bit of practice he started to take the treats nicely so we moved onto strengthening his place skill. We added in some movement distractions as well as creating some distance, making sure he stayed on the bed. Gryffin was cheeky, stepping of the bed every now and then although as we continued working, he became more consistent, staying on the bed even as we tok up to 8 steps back.||Focus: Manners||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Gryffin made his way outside to work on his loose lead walking. Gryffin did well engaging with his trainer today while outside. He would walk off to investigate something every now and then but would quickly return to his trainer to continue walking. As the lesson went on, his loose lead got stronger as he happily stayed by his trainer's side, walking with him when i low distraction areas.||Focus: Obedience||B|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: Gryffin finsihed the day wth his touch skill. We tried strenghtening this skill using the same method of getting him to touch a wooden spoon with his nose, marking yes when he boops it and giving him a treat. Gryffin was quick to touch it this lesson, booping it quickly for a treat. We then started to add in the verbal "touch", to get him to understand that when we say touch we want him to boop something. After some repetition, Gryffin had started to consistently boop the spoon when we asked him to touch.||Focus: Repetition||C+|

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.
