|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Today Indie had a brand new male trainer she hadn’t had much to do with before take her through her sessions. Initially the trainer thought they would need to work a little to build some trust and engagement with Indie however they were happily surprised when she greeted them at the accomodation door with a wagging tail and encouraging attitude! The trainer was able to take her out and work straight away which was fantastic! Her loose lead had a focus on engagement but she was also worked outside in the car park with another dog for a distraction and she did fantastic keeping her focus on the trainer. She also was asked at random for sits and drops to test her obedience while walking and she also did great with this as well, all in all a great first session which has set her up for success for the rest of the day!||Focus: Obedience||B|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: For her second session the trainer wanted to do some skills based around raising her confidence and build her drive for training. To do this they did some more work on her “middles” skill. Since she is a little shy getting her to go through a new persons legs is a big boost in confidence for her. Not only was she able to successfully do this the trainer was even able to start adding in the verbal! For a bit of fun to end the trainer tried to put some costumes on indie for a bit more confidence raising. She wasn’t a fan of the hats however she absolutely loved the sun glasses! The trainer wasn’t just able to get a cool photo of her she actually walked around doing loose lead with them on as well! What a champion.||Focus: Confidence||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: (Ta-Da) For her last session today the frisbee thought it best to do a little more confidence building with her, while she was working for this trainer they wanted to make sure she fully trusted them for future training sessions. So using a lure they got her doing some “paws up” onto the trainers leg as they were kneeling down, this is known as the trick skill Ta-Da and helps build confidence in touching new things! She smashed it today easily able to follow the lure and once she had done it a few times she was going up and down like a yo-yo!||Focus: Repetition||C+|
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.
