|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: For his first session we treated Kong to a lovely bath in the kennels. After having some help to get into the bath area he did very well with he bath, allowing the trainer so give him a good scrub with shampoo and conditioner.||Focus: Conditioning||X|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For his second session we worked on Kong's place in the classroom at the same time as Mojo working on his place skill. Kong was fantastic on place and barely even paid attention to Mojo which is great for his focus and engagement on the trainer. We tested Kong with both food, people and tennis ball distractions - he did great with people and toys but did come off during the food distraction briefly though this was after a few minutes of looking at the kibble. Next time we'd like to see Kong not be as distracted by food so that we can push his skill further. At home, continue practicing the place skill often and use moderate distractions for him.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his last session we worked on Kong's drops with Mojo in the background. Again, Kong did very well with great focus on the trainer and didn't pay much attention to Mojo during his training. We tested him with some high people distractions (running, dancing, circling around him etc) and he didn't break which is fantastic! Next time we'd like to push him a bit further and maybe use some good food distraction as he did get distracted by food on place. At home use light to moderate distractions while he is in drop and encourage his duration in drop.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
We recommend your next step should be…

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.
