|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: First session Jaeger worked on his drop skill. He was a bit distracted initially coming into the class environment and needed some guidance with a hand signal. After a few repetitions he was responding nicely to the verbal cue alone and holding his duration around both dog and people distractions. He broke the position a handful of times before his release word but was easily redirected back into position with a verbal uh uh. Keep working on this at home with different distractions to push the skill further.||Focus: Duration||B|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: Jaegers second session we worked on some Paws Up. This skill is great for confidence building and can be used on any object and in any environment once comfortable with different objects. Today we used a step and jaeger happily responded to the verbal cue and would hold duration until his release word. We started to work on using a round pod instead of a step and Jaeger was a bit hesitant about this so we used treats to help lure him, he started to pick it up by the end of the session. Keep building his confidence with different objects at home.||Focus: Confidence||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Jaegers final session we worked on his place skill. As this is a skill he knows well we were able to push the distraction level with trainer movement, dogs near by and toys. Jaeger held his duration well only breaking position a couple of times at the start of the session. The trainer was also able to have him tethered and walk around the room to build on his distance. Keep working on increasing distractions at home and building up his duration. Good job!||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.
