|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Welcome back Mr Jaeger! This handsome boy began his day with some ‘loose lead’ walking with added drops in the cool cattery. Jaeger had such good engagement with the trainer and dropped beautifully when asked. He did get frightened by a rabbit, but after some treatos and reassurance, the rabbit no longer bothered him for the rest of his session. As it was a warm day, Jaeger did lose some engagement towards the end as he was tired. Keep up the great work though, this engagement was awesome to see!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: Next up, Jaeger worked on his ‘paws up’ skill, to continue to help build his confidence. At first Jaeger was not interested, but after a little tug of encouragement, he got his paw on an inflatable pod, yay!! Jaeger was rewarded quite heavily for this to help him understand he did exactly what we wanted. After that, it was pretty smooth sailing and he performed paws up on a plastic container also. Keep up the great work with him at home, he has improved so much!||Focus: Confidence||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: To finish off, Jaeger practiced both his ‘place training’ and ‘drop’ skill outside as it was cooling down. Jaeger went to place when asked, but he seemed a little unsettled on it, therefore he would not take any treats while on the place bed. The trainer then decided to do some drops with him again and he did fantastic! He has such good understanding of this skill and it is so good to see how strong he is in it after all this time! Definitely keep pushing him with his drops; add in higher distractions of toys, food, etc. Revisit his place skill at home. Does he take treats there? Is he going on it nicely? Is he hesitant? Be sure to make place training a positive skill for him by giving him lots of positive reinforcement. So glad to see you back, Jaeger!||Focus: Distraction||B|

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.
