|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For her first session today Koda worked on sending her to place. We started doing this without any distractions in the classroom and then slowly introduced some, these included people and dogs. Koda did really well and didn’t bark once at other dogs. She was super focused on the trainer and was jumping straight onto place when we said “place” and pointed to it. Keep working on this one, she is definitely ready for more distractions and increased distance (being sent to).||Focus: Distance||B+|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: Her second session today was focused on something fun, paws up! This skill requires them to put their two front feet up on an object, for this we used a plastic pod/step. To teach this we simply lure them towards the step and then move the treat up above the step, this encourages them to reach up and hopefully put their feet on it. It took a while for Koda to figure this out but eventually put one foot on by accident. From here she only got better and better, she picked it up really quickly and we were able to start increasing the duration she was on there for. Keep working on this one as it’s great for confidence and strength!||Focus: Confidence||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For her last session today Koda worked on her drops with distractions. Since she is still working on duration we kept her drops short. The distractions in the classroom included two other dogs, she did really well. She did have a moment of barking but we used “search” to help bring her focus back. We were able to get her in a drop, reward, step back, reward and then release. Keep working on her drops at home, she even responded to a verbal cue.||Focus: Distraction||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.
