|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: We went straight into drops for Kipi's first session today. Due to the heat we didn't make him get up and down too much but more focused on him staying in drop for long periods of time with food and toy distractions. His drops are still fantastic, he didn't break with either distractions and would have happily stayed in drop beyond his session! Keep up the great work at home (use distractions often), he is doing so well in the classroom and is so responsive when asked to drop.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Kipi has 100% got the concept of relaxing on place and demonstrated that well during his passive place session. He lay down right away and I spotted his eyes closing several times while he was on the bed. Perfect A+ behaviour!||Focus: Duration||A+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: We spent two full sessions working on various tricks for Kipi's trick title including filming several videos of his skills. Kipi performed well with all of his skills - place, sit, drop, touch targeting, press bell, press light, spin, tug rope, pick a card and more! This was a very tiring two sessions for him and he did get a touch growly near the end but tolerated the hard work very well. We hope to be able to use the videos to get his Novice trick title - keep up the great work at home with all of his fun skills.||Focus: Repetition||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.
