|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: To start his day off in a positive way the trainer did some skills that Knox knows well to make sure we charged up his training drive for the rest of the day. The skills that were worked on in this session was middles and bang bang! These two skills are ones Knox knows well and so it’s easier to get him all excited about training. He was able to do middles without a treat lire today which was great and he was consecutively rolling all the way in his back for bang bang, both of these are showing the trainer he is still making progress with these skills which is awesome!||Focus: Conditioning||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For his seocnd session the trainer wanted to harness some of his wriggly energy and put it into some hoop training! This is a very active and physical skill to do so the trainer likes to do something like hoop when they can tell Knox has some extra energy for the day. He did amazing with this being able to increase the height of the hoop even more today! The key to this skill is he likes the trainer being on the other side of the hoop, it helps entice him through and helps him try not to walk around the hoop. To help with this even more the trainer put some barriers next to the hoop today just to encourage him even more to go through it and not around it. Next time the frisbee is confident they will be able to hold the hoop and have Knox jumping through multiple times!||Focus: Conditioning||B|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: For his last session the trainer wanted to try a new skill with Knox so they have started his “crawl” skill. This is something he does on his own however the trainer wanted to shape this skill and give it a verbal command. To start off the trainer made it easy for him and took him into the play pen where he was lured through half buried tires being used as a barrier. The use of barrier like this helps guide Knox to the right way of doing things and helps set him up for success. He was successfully able to go through all the tires today and the trainer was even able to start adding in the verbal of “crawl” today as well! He had an amazing day and really showed off his love of training.||Focus: Conditioning||C+|
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.
