|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For his first session we worked on Jamie's place in the classroom with other dogs. He was very excitable and didn't take treats until the last minute of the session. As he wasn't taking treats we focused on duration and trying to get him to relax around other dogs. Whenever we had him break we would razz him up and then send him to place but he did struggle a bit with his focus when going to place. Next time we'd like to see him relax a bit more on place and engage with the trainer more. At home continue with his place skill and use enrichment toys to help him relax.||Focus: Duration||C-|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For his second session we took Jamie outside to work on his loose lead skill. While he wasn't taking treats again this session he walked really nicely and was still very responsive to his "yes" marker (would look up at the trainer every time). Next time we'd like to have him walk nicely outside with other dogs in view to help him work on some of his reactivity when walking. At home keep up his good loose lead skills around the house and yard.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For his final session, as Jamie was overexcited in the classroom, we spent another session on his place skill. He was taking treats this session so we focused on movement distractions and red light/green light. He did break at the beginning with exaggerated movements and mock running from the trainer but settled shortly after and didn't break. With red light/green light he responded really well - we had quick play sessions and he went to place straight away after being asked, even in his over-aroused state. Next time we'd like to use the red light/green light method a bit more to really help him settle on place. Use this method at home with the help of some toys to push his progress in this skill further.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Jamie also did a passive place session today (a non-active place session focused purely on duration). He did break quite a bit so this is something that needs a bit more work.||Focus: Duration||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.
