|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his first session we took Kong outside with Mojo to work on his loose lead. Kong was a little distracted at the start and did pull towards Mojo once. After a minute or so of walking though he settled right down into his usual lovely pace with fantastic focus on the trainer. Near the end he did pull quite strongly towards the fountain though. Next time we'd like Kong to not pull when walking near the fountain as he has done it a few times now and it is a big distraction for him. At home keep up the great work!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his second session we worked on Kong's drop duration in the classroom. With 5 people in the classroom he did break a few times but overall did really well with all the noise and movement. We also spent a few minutes distracting him with people calling him - he broke once or twice and then was really good. Next time we'd like to push Kong's drop skill with a high level of distractions - at home use a moderate to high level of distraction around him while doing drop training sessions.||Focus: Duration||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For his last session we worked on a few of Kong's tricks. He smashed out his hanky/tug skill as was really good with his touch targeting. We spent a few minutes on each and then moved onto the bell skill as he didn't show knowledge of it. He touched the bell a few times with his nose but didn't really do much with his paw. Next time we'd like to work on just the bell skill as his other two target skills are really good. At home use a small object similar to the bell and encourage him to use his paw on it.||Focus: Repetition||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.
