|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: For his first session today Kali worked on touch/target with a touch stick and slowly progressed to a sticky note. He picked this up quickly and was doing it repetitively. We then wrapped the touch stick with a sticky note and got him to target that. We progressed to just holding the sticky note and getting him to target that. Keep working on this one, he has great knowledge.||Focus: Repetition||B+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: Kalis second session today was all about recalls outside on a long line. He knows his recalls very well, he did get a little bit distracted at times when he found a good smell in the grass. Other than that we could start with him in a drop or when he was just wondering around. Keep working on his recalls, especially getting him to sit once he has reached you.||Focus: Distance||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his last session today Kali worked on his drops with distractions. We also worked with distance as well since we still had the long line with us! We could put kali in a drop and walk away from him (to the end of the lead). From here we would run, jump and skip around him without him breaking position. Keep working on this he is doing really well! Don’t forget you can use his breakfast and dinner portions for his training, this makes them work for their food and keep them at a healthy weight.||Focus: Distraction||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.
