|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: First session Jager worked on his paws up skill. Today we used a smaller round pod to test the skill and after some initial hesitation with the newer object Jaeger became quite confident with it. During this session we worked on his duration of the skill and began working on rear end awareness by using treats to slowly lure him to pivot around the pod. Jaeger definitely enjoys this skill and it’s a great way to build confidence!||Focus: Duration||B|
|Skill learnt: Ring a Bell||Comment: Second session Jaeger worked on some trick training. Trick training is a great way to build confidence and a strong bond with our dogs while also working their brains. This session jaeger worked in ringing a bell with his paw. Each time he touched the bell we marked and rewarded. He was more interested in touching the bell with his nose than his paw so we began to reward this instead to shape that behaviour. Once he is showing more reliability we can begin adding verbal cues.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For his final session Jaeger worked on learning to put his toys away (dropping and item in a bucket). To teach this we reward anytime jaeger picks up the object and to help him learn to bring the item to the bucket we drop his reward (treat) into the bucket. Jaeger happily picked the ball up and would drop it close by but did lose interest quickly. To keep his engagement we rotated between some drop repetitions and the trick to keep him thinking||Focus: Foundation||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.
