|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Jack made his way to the classroom to work on his impulse control and settling skills with some Red light, green light. We tried to get Jack excited with a range of toys and physical play. Jack tried to play for a moment at the start of the lesson but quickly lost interest in any kind of play. After some effort trying to get him excited, Jack wasn't giving us a but engagement so we took him outside onto the grass to work on his place skill under distraction. We used fast movement distractions to test Jack. Jack hopped of the build multiple times as we started, but with a bit of repetition Jack happily laid on the bed relaxed, not paying any attention to any distractions we threw his way.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: We took Jack for a walk around the facility focusing on his engagement and keeping a loose lead. Jack kept his loose lead well at the beginning of the lesson sussing but his trainer's side with good engagement as we made our way down towards the carpark. Jack found walking over the grassy area more challenging as he was distracted by the smells, still staying next to his trainer but losing his engagement as he wanted to sniff. This resulted in him hitting the end of the lead multiple times but as we continued walking, Jack started to re-engage, finishing the lesson well.||Focus: Obedience||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: We worked outside on the grassy area that distracted Jack earlier today, going over his drops. There were dogs nearby as we worked, gaining Jack's attention. We practiced his duration in the skill under distraction, with Jack happily staying down in the skill the majority of the lesson. He got up before his release a few times but with a quick reminder he went straight back into the skill quickly.||Focus: Duration||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.
