It was a pleasure to have Mr Jamie back training with us today, he is such a happy boy who loves his training and lots of cuddles. He is performing well with his skills, keep pushing his drop under distractions when at home.

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his first session, Jamie focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with going back to basics in a low distracting environment. We focused on basics to ensure Jamie has a good understanding of this skill before challenging him further. When engaged Jamie performs well, he responds to the verbal cue 'drop' with a hand signal. Jamie can struggle when distractions are added (people walking in), he loses engagement and does not drop. But with some guidance he quickly began to remain engaged with his trainer despite these distractions. Next time we would like to see Jamie remained engaged with his trainer despite distractions.||Focus: Back to Basics||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Jamie focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with distractions and play (red light, green light). We focused on this skill to proof Jamie's drops while he is excited and highly aroused. Jamie struggled to drop during this session, he showed good engagement with his trainer but did not respond to the verbal cue drop or the hand signal. When excited Jamie struggles to drop despite his knowledge of the skill, with some guidance and reducing his excitement levels he began to drop. We suggest continuing to focus on red light, green light at home.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his final session, the trainer focused on further developing his skill 'send to place' with distance under distractions. We focused on this skill to continue improve Jamie's decision making as part of his canine reactivity. Jamie performed very well, he was initially distracted by the toys and food in front of ‘place’. But with some guidance he began to ignore the distractions. The trainer was very impressed with Jamie in this session.||Focus: Distraction||B|

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.
