Hera did so well today! She was engaged for the most part and showed no reactivity towards any other dog!

"I trained hard, I played hard! Please find below the skills we worked on and my results. I look forward to showing you what I learnt and working on them more with you!" If you have any questions about the skills we trained please feel free to contact todays trainer."
|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Hera began her day practicing her ‘drop’ skill in the cattery, focusing on duration, still taking it easy after her desexing. She did really well! Hera remained in a splooted drop while the trainer was able to do laps of the cattery! Hera was in the middle of the cattery and had cat condos each side of her and did well with ignoring them! (Mind you, the kitties were hiding a bit!). Towards the end Hera got a little restless, but with the use of her non-reward marker “ah ah” and some slight lead pressure, she would go back into her drop. Keep pushing her with this at home, her duration is getting better though!||Focus: Duration||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Next up, Hera worked on her ‘hanky pull’ trick in the classroom with a couple doggo distractions. The trainer also had Hera on place to help keep her controlled, which she responded to really well! There was no reactivity from Hera and she was able to remain focused on the trainer and performed so well with her hanky pull! Hera can get a little uninterested at times, but if the trainer were to make the hanky “come alive” she would bite and pull again! Keep practicing this at home and build her pulling duration!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: To finish off Miss Hera’s day, she continued to work on her ‘chin rest’ skill, while on place again. Hera is still learning this trick and therefore the trainer still used a treat lure to get her chin in the palm of the trainers hand. There were times during the session where Hera would get uninterested, so the trainer would just do place duration with her instead. As she was in the cattery again, she had the kitty distractions! For the last couple minuted Hera resumed her chin rest training and started to build some duration as well. Keep practicing this with her at home and slowly fade the lure. Great work today, Hera!||Focus: Distraction||B|

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.
