Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his first session we worked on loose lead just outside the classroom. Koda was a little nervous but was taking treats so we were able to do a bit of back to basics with the skill. He did pull ahead every now and then but we simply marked "uh uh" and turned around each time and he soon settled into the walk. He gave OK engagement but could use improvement in this area. He did get distracted by birds but would just become a little fixated on them, no pulling or barking which is showing some good impulse control already! Focus: Back to Basics C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For his second session we started off with a few minutes of place (we used "bed" for this) to help him settle as he got very excitable coming out for training again. Once more settled we moved onto his drop skill with a focus on duration. Initially he would pop right back up so we just guided him back into the drop each time so that he would stay there until he heard "free". He improved well with this and was able to hold it with the trainer moving around him a little by the end. Focus: Duration C+
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: For his last session we worked on some recall basics in the classroom. He did fairly well with his recalls, he would get a bit excited and sometimes come back a bit wide but we were able to straighten him up with some food lures. We also worked on having him finish in the sit position which he could do if lured but would forget without the lure. Focus: Foundation B

We recommend your next step should be…

Attend a Basic Obedience Course

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 DoneĀ (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.
