|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: First session Leena worked on her drop skill. Today we focused on repetition to strengthen the verbal cue and building her duration. Initially leena was very excited and struggled to hold position but by the end of the session she was responding well to the verbal cue only and holding duration around low energy trainer movements. Keep working on her duration at home and gradually increase distraction level.||Focus: Duration||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Leenas second session we worked on her place skill. During this session we focused mainly on her duration and engagement. In this session Poppy was being trained in the classroom also to help condition her being around Poppy and have a calm mindset. She did initially become a bit fixated on poppy and to help with this we began conditioning her to “search” which is where we drop a handful of treats on the place bed to redirect her focus. By the end of the session Leena began to lay down and settle on place around Poppy and low energy trainer movements.||Focus: Conditioning||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Final session Leena worked on her loose lead in the classroom around Poppy. Again this session was focusing on her engagement with the trainer and conditioning her around Poppy. Leena did well this session with minimal pulling and focusing on the trainer, each time she looked over a Poppy we marked yes and gave her a treat to build a positive association and also redirect her focus back to the trainer.||Focus: Conditioning||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.
