|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In her first session, Lady focused on building on her ‘loose lead walking’ with repetitions under distraction (training around kennel staff who were spraying water). We focused on this skill to help better her decision making process when in a real-life scenario. Lady performed well, she lost engagement with her trainer when the water was close to her but redirected her focus quickly. To help Lady engage with her trainer she incorporated drops while walking. Next time the trainer would like to see Lady remain engaged despite these distractions. We suggest continuing to practice this at home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: In her second session, Lady focused on learning the new skill ‘come’ with repetition within the classroom. The trainer began with Lady in a controlled position (drop), then moving to the other side of the room and releasing her with ‘break’ while walking backward, this encourages her to come to the trainer and builds drive. This was completed for several repetitions, the trainer then began to say ‘come’ to replace ‘break’, Lady continued to perform well and engage with her trainer. We suggest you continue to practice this skill at home while Lady is on lead.||Focus: Foundation||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her third session, Lady focused on building on her ‘drop’ skill under distractions, to help reduce her jumping. Lady performed amazingly, the trainer played with her to make her excited to encourage her to jump. But no matter what the trainer did she would not jump, she would drop instead. The trainer was very impressed with Lady and how far she has come with her skills, especially her drop. We recommend focusing on drops at home, whenever she wants a pat, to come inside, she must drop first. We would also recommended to try not giving her the opportunity to jump, put her in drop straight away.||Focus: Distraction||A|
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.
