|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: For his first session today the trainer wanted to work on Jacks drop skill with an focus on his distraction and distance. For his distraction portion the trainer had him feathered in the class room, this gives him a little more freedom in his decision making, this in turn makes the training a little harder for Jack as he had less guidance. The trainer started off with fast movement distractions, jumping away and towards jack as well as acting like an excited child around him. While he was wriggly he did such a good job staying in the drop today and the trainer is so happy with him! He even remained in a drop while another dog came into the classroom and worked around him and whole focused on the dog not once did he jump up and the trainer was still able to ask him For a recall! For his distance portion the trainer was able to walk across the classroom while Jack was in a sit, they were the. Able to ask him for a drop from a large distance away and he quickly and effectively went into his drop, such an awesome first session!
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)
|Comment: For his second session the trainer worked on Jacks paws up skill. Not only is this a fun session to do it’s also a great way to raise his confidence. Today in order to progress the skill today the trainer started adding in some new objects for Jack to put his paw up on to. He started with ones he had done before such as the ottoman and the trainers leg. However he also something new today in the form of the wobble circle! This circle moves around as he puts pressure on the object. To the trainer surprise Jack jumped straight up on the circle and balanced right away which was a great way to finish out the session!
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: For his last session today the trainer wanted to test dead old Jack on his place skill. Being one of his strongest skills the trainer worked on his distractions today staying on place. They started with the basics of running around at fast pace near Jack and jumping around! This was way to easy for him so the trainer used tennis balls as a distraction! They bounced them around him, over him and even threw it past him! Nothing broke Jack off place today and the trainer was very very impressed! The trainer is so impressed with Jacks progress and the work at home has been helping him so much with pushing his training here at school as well, keep up the amazing work!
We recommend your next step should be…

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.
