|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Lady began her day with some ‘loose lead’ walking in the kennels, having plenty of dog distractions. She was quite reactive during this session and was not taking treats as a result of that. The trainer kept a good distance away from the dogs as she was not showing great engagement, just walking her up and down the kennels 3 runs over. Lady would show engagement for a few seconds, then react. The trainer would then make noises to regain her focus, which would work for several seconds before she switched off again.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Next up, Lady worked on her ‘drop’ skill in the kennels. She did so much better this time around! She was taking treats so it was much easier for the trainer to grab her engagement. Lady dropped when told, although she reacted initially, after a few minutes of rewarding her in a controlled position, she settled and was able to commence her training. For the first few drops, Lady needed a lure as she was a little distracted, but soon she dropped just from the verbal cue, yay! Lady performed so well during this session and did not react for the remainder. Remember to pop Lady in a controlled position if she starts to react, she will still listen, just might need a lure as well. Awesome work!||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: To finish up, Lady worked on her ‘place’ training in the kennels. Lady did not react to begin with, which was great! She was able to go to and from place from approximately a metre away, ignoring the dogs. About half way through the session, she would only react to one dog in particular, so the trainer took the time to have her on place and “yes” reward her until she settled down. Once she was calm enough, she resumed going to and from place, without reacting. We want for Lady to be able to remain calm around dogs in the future. Remember your controlled positions and treats will be your best friend to help assist with this.||Focus: Distraction||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.
