|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Hera is doing really well at the place skill these days! She has a great understanding of the skill and can be sent to place from a distance. She did break a few times during her session with people distractions (crouching down and calling her, smacking the ground to entice her etc) but learnt quickly that it is more rewarding to stay on place. Her duration is going well but she can break after a time if distracted. Overall, really great work though! Next time we'd like to see her stay on place with higher distractions - keep up the great work on place at home to get her ready for the higher level!||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning||Comment: For her second session we continued conditioning Hera to the muzzle. She does really well at putting her nose into it and having the straps done up. She does still struggle to leave it on without trying to get it off so this was the focus of the session with lots of treats to help distract her. This will take some time for her to become used to it but once she does being able to train (and distract herself) with it on will help a lot. Keep conditioning her to it at home and make it a fun thing for her (put it on before a bit of play time etc).||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For her final session we worked on loose lead in the classroom. Hera is a bit unusual in her loose lead - for 80-90% of the time she had 100% focus on the trainer. The other times she was 100% focused on anything else! She walks very nicely when focused but does get easily distracted so that is a big focus of her training. Next time we'd like to see her keep more focus on the trainer and not pull when distracted. At home encourage engagement from her when practicing loose lead with lots of yummy treats!||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.
