|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his first session, Jamie focused on further developing his skill 'send to place' with repetitions under distractions (food, toys and ball, within the classroom while another dog was training). Jamie initially struggled to ignore the distractions and go to place, but with some guidance he slowly began to redirect his focus and go straight to place. Jamie ignored the dog distraction within the room. Next time we would like to see Jamie ignore all distractions from the beginning of his session. We suggest continuing to practise 'send to place' at home with a variety of distractions.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Jamie focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with repetitions within the classroom (two other dogs training within close proximity). We focused on encouraging Jamie to drop on the left side of his trainer instead of in front. Jamie initially struggled, the trainer went back to basics and lured Jamie into the desired position. With this guidance, Jamie began to perform well. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Back to Basics||B|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: In his final session, Jamie focused on learning the new skill 'targeting' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to help increase engagement. Jamie performed well, he interacted with the spoon straight away, touching it with his nose and paws. With some guidance he quickly began to only touch the spoon with his nose. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||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.
