|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In her first session, Kimchi focused on further developing her ‘loose lead’ walking under low distractions (training in the classroom). We focused on this skill as Kimchi can display challenging behaviours such as pulling. Kimchi initially struggled to remain engaged with her trainer as she was distracted by the classroom environment. With some guidance she slowly began to redirect her focus back onto the trainer and walk in the correct position showing some engagement. Next time we would like Kimchi to show more engagement with her trainer. We suggest continue to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||C|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In the second session, Kimchi focused on further developing her skill 'place' under high distraction (two other dogs training within the classroom, human and ball movement, as well as food). We focused on this skill to help proof Kimchi's place and build her impulse control. Kimchi performed very well, she only broke place once when the trainer bent down. The only distraction which was challenging for Kimchi was human movement, she loves people and it is her biggest distraction. Next time we would like to see her not break place on the first repetition. Continue practising this skill at home. Kimchi also completed 30 minutes of passive place while the trainer working with other dogs, she was calm, relaxed and went to sleep.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her final session, Kimchi focused on further developing her skill 'drop' with duration and distance, under distraction (two other dogs training within the classroom). Kimchi initially struggled to go into drop, but with some guidance and going back to basics she quickly began to perform well. Once engaged the trainer began working on distance, she performed well with this. The trainer was able to walk all the way around her while she remained in drop. Next time we would like to see Kimchi engage with her trainer earlier in the session. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distance||C+|

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.
