|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: for his first session we took Kipi into the cattery to work on his loose lead under distraction. Even with the added distractions he did fantastic and kept pace with the trainer for at least 95% of the time. He didn't take treats until about halfway through the session but then was fine. Next time we'd like to push the loose lead distractions further - keep practising his loose lead in familiar environments to improve his level.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: for his second session we worked on place to help Kipi relax in the classroom. At the start he was a bit wary as there was cleaning happening in the classroom so we used place to help him not feel so anxious by giving him something else to focus on. He did great with distractions - he only broke the first time throwing toys around and then stayed put. In the last half of the session he started choosing to lie down on place a lot which was really great to see. Next time we'd like to see him stay in place with greater distractions and have him relax on place between active sessions. At home continue using the place skill as his safety blanket skill when he is unsure or just needs to relax.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: for his final session we worked on Kipi's drop in the classroom. He seemed a little nervous at the start of the session and stuck close to the trainer. He listened really well to the drop command but again seemed reluctant to come out of the drop when released. As he had been a bit nervous we didn't push him too far in the drop, just worked on trainer movement and food distraction which he did awesome with! Near the end of the session he did get a bit grumbly so we didn't push it much further for today. Next time we'd like to push him a little further with distractions but his duration was excellent today. At home, practice his drops in familiar environments and work on small distractions (throwing toys, placing food or energetic movements around him).||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Kipi did fantastic on passive place (just staying on place for 15 minutes with no added distractions) with another dog in the classroom. He didn't break once and spent pretty much the entire time lying down on the bed.||Focus: Duration||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.
