|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: First session Koby worked on his drop. He still needed a bit of help with a lure to get into position and for the first part of the session was a bit reluctant to drop all the way down. Through repetition he started getting that bum down and getting into the final position. We were able to build up his duration around low distractions. Keep working on this at home, focusing on fading out the treat lure.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Kobys second session we worked on place. He is showing good progress in this, understanding the verbal cue and being able to be sent from a short distance. He was also able to hold his duration around higher energy movement from his trainer and other staff members. He did break early a handful of times but we were able to direct him back to place by saying uh uh and pointing at the bed. Keep building the distraction level to strengthen further.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Final session Koby worked on his loose lead. Today we worked outside on the pavement. This initially was a bit distracting and he was more interested in sniffing, we got his focus back by asking for some sits and then moving on. Koby is starting to get the hang of this and walking by the trainer, he does pull ahead at times and when he does we stop and move the other way encouraging him to follow. Keep working on his leash skills at home in low distracting environments (like the back yard) focusing on his engagement and following direction change before increasing distraction level.||Focus: Foundation||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.
