|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In lexi’s first session we trained drop with distance, this will teach the dog to relax even in all different environments. Lexi was pretty good in drops we trained drop inside, with other dogs in training and she was great she broke a few time from drop but other then that she did fantastic. Next session I would like to work on this more until we can do it outside. Training this at home do this out the back maybe or inside for her we’ve been using a hand signal while we say drop. So when you have her attention say drop same time as when you point to the floor, when she does reward with “yes” and treats. If she breaks from it say “nah ah” and pull her lead to the floor. If she’s doing it pretty well add some distance so take one step back reward then two and so on.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Lexi’s seconds session we trained place with distractions, our distractions were food. We also had other dogs in training as well. Lexi did great we had food spread out on the floor and we lured him over the food with some fritz. Which is something more high value then the food we had on the ground. Next session I would like to see if we can lower the luring to really push her. Training this at home if pretty simple use her bed and put her on place, have some food that’s spread out on the floor maybe some dry food, then with more high value food such as fritz cheese or anything that she like lure her off of place and when you turn around say place, then reward with food.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: Lexi’s last one we trained Around, as this is a good recall skill for dogs to learn. And saw on the paper you wanted recall. We trained this with a lot of luring to start off, and we started on place then we would lure her around till her whole body was around the cone. Next session I would like to work on this more with her as I know she will do amazing with it. Training this at home get her bed and put her on it, lure her off the bed and around a cone or anything you have that she can walk around and not just step over, once her body is around the cone reward with yes, but don’t give her the food until she’s on her bed.||Focus: Repetition||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.
