|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his first session, Jerry focused on further developing his skill 'sending to place' with repetitions under distractions (6 bowls of food). We focused on this skill to build Jerry's impulse control surrounding food. Jerry performed very well, he ignored the high distractions and went straight to place. Jerry progressed well from his last session where food was a big distraction. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Jerry focused on further developing his skill 'emergency drop' with repetitions under distractions (two dogs training within the classroom). We focused on this skill as a safety aspect to his canine reactivity. Jerry performed very well, he continued to drop despite the trainer, walking, running, and falling when asking for drop. The trainer was very impressed with Jerry and how far he has progressed. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his final session, Jerry focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead walking' with repetitions and distractions (walking next to another dog and outside). We focused on this skill to help build engagement and reduce Jerry's pulling. Jerry performed very well, he showed good engagement and did not pull. Next time we would like to challenge Jerry with distractions while walking. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home, walking up and down a low distracting hallway within your home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: This week the doggies attended their first art class with the trainers. This involved a session full of enrichment and fun, stimulating the dogs mentally, as well as using the opportunity to condition the environment and make something beautiful to take home.||Focus: Confidence||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.
