|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his first session Jamie focused on further developing his skill ‘drop’ while wearing the muzzle in a high distracting classroom (four dogs within classroom). Jamie was initially distracted by the environment and struggled to drop, however after three repetitions he began to redirect his focus onto the trainer and perform well. The trainer used toys as reinforcement during this session once he had completed a successful repetition he was released to play. Jamie loved this.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his second session, Jamie focused on further developing his loose lead walking while wearing a muzzle and around high distractions (outside around another dog playing). We focused on this skill to build Jamie’s impulse control surrounding dogs while on a walk. Jamie performed very well, he showed great engagement and showed no signs of reactivity towards the other dog. Once again, the ball was used as a reward for Jamie, when he was engaged and performing well the trainer would release him into play for 30 seconds, then resume walking.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In his final session, Jamie focused on conditioning to the muzzle. We focused on this skill as he can struggle to put his nose in the muzzle. Jamie initially ignored the muzzle, but with some patients and treats he began to place his nose into the muzzle. Suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Conditioning||B|
We recommend your next step should be…

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.
