|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In her first session, Kora focused on further developing her skill 'loose lead walking' with repetitions under high distractions (training outside while people, car and dogs go in and out). We focused on this skill to reduce Kora's pulling and increase her engagement. Kora performed very well, she showed great engagement with her trainer and walked in the correct position. To keep her engaged the trainer incorporated sit and drop while walking, she performed very well with both skills. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her second session, Kora focused on further developing her skill 'drop' with repetitions under distractions (similarly to the first session, training outside while cars, people and dogs go in and out of kennel facility). We focused on this session to further proof Kora's drop and build her impulse control. Kora performed amazingly, she still requires a low hand signal to go into drop, she did break on the first repetition when a dog walked past. But with some guidance she began to maintain her drop well despite distractions and the trainer slowly reducing the hand signal. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In her final session, Kora focused on further developing her skill 'send to place' with repetitions under distractions (multiple bowls of high and low value treats). We focused this skill to build Kora's impulse control surrounding food. Kora performs well with 'send to place', the trainer began introducing distractions to challenge her further, including food. Kora remained engaged with her trainer and ignored all the food distractions. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home with a variety of different distractions.||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.
