|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: For Kracka's first session it was a conditioning session to the vacuum. As the trainer was walking Kracka through the kennel the vacuum was being used and Kracka didn't want to walk passed it. Although Kracka did get closer to the vacuum as the session progressed, he still needs some work on this. You can work on this at home. Have someone else use the vacuum and with Kracka a little way from the machine put him in a drop and just constantly yes and reward. Baby steps closer to the vacuum. This is something the trainer will continue to work on as well with Kracka.||Focus: Desensitisation||D+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Loose lead was the focus of Kracka's second session. He did pull quite a bit at the beginning, Especially around the kennels where he could hear the dogs but not see them. The trainer continued to work with Kracka on this throughout the session and he did progress well.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Kracka's last session was drop. The trainer worked with Kracka in a low distraction environment at first and then progressed to the more stimulating environment of the kennels. Kracka did struggle to hold the drop position a couple of times in the kennel but overall did well. Next time the trainer would like to see Kracka be more confident in the kennel and hold position better.||Focus: Distraction||C+|

D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
