|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For his first session we continued working on his place skill from yesterday. King has a good understanding of the basics and can be sent to place from a small distance which is really good! The focus of today's session was to work on his distraction level with movement distractions - having the trainer walk away, jog nearby and crouching. He did break at the start of each of these actions but as the session improved he started staying on place and even relaxing into a sitting or laying down position which is exactly what we want. Well done King!||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his second session we worked on Kong's drops, with a focus on duration. At the start of the session King would pop back up from a drop almost immediately but as the session progressed his duration really improved and he was able to stay in drop for a few minutes while watching another dog. Keep working on duration at home and then start with some light distractions (taking a step away) to continue building his skill.||Focus: Duration||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his last session we finished off with loose lead in the classroom. At the start King was quite distracted but after a few minutes he started to settle into the walk and focus on the trainer. He was able to mostly ignore the other dog training in the classroom and responded well to the light lead pressure when turning. Keep working on his loose lead in familiar and low distraction environments to continue building his foundation of the skill.||Focus: Distraction||B|

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.
