|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: First up for Khan was loose lead walking. He was quite excited and it did take a little bit to get Khan to use his manners and stick to a controlled position before exiting the kennel area. Once out of the kennels, Khan did pull a little because dogs were nearby and very noisy. The trainer worked in a small area and changed direction when Khan pulled. It didn’t take long before Khan settled and the trainer was able to walk without the frequent change of direction. A couple of times he was distracted by other people, but the trainer was able to get Khan’s focus back easily. Make sure you take treats on walks to help make them structured and encourage Khan to be less distracted and focused more on you.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Drops were the focus of Khan’s second session. Again this was done outside with a number of distractions. Khan was slow with his drops. The trainer did a number of quicker repetitions, this helped Khan focus and help him engage better. As the session progressed Khan was dropping and holding position well. At times Khan did break position when he was distracted. He was keen to turn to face the distraction before dropping. Going forward it would be good to have Khan drop without turning first.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Last session for Khan was place. The trainer used an empty yard that was near other dogs. Nearby dogs were a bit of a distraction and Khan had trouble getting on place. Then once on place he was following the trainer to get off place. The trainer increased the yes marker and Khan started to hold place well. Because of this the trainer walked quite a distance from Khan and he held place!! A staff member came passed and Khan was still able to hold place without the trainer near him. Next time it will be great to see Khan settle quicker and not break place so easily.||Focus: Distraction||B+|

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.
