|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For her first session we went straight into Lexi's drop skill. She has progressed well with this skill - she stayed in drop with tennis balls being thrown past her and barely looked at them. She did struggle a bit with people distractions (slapping legs, calling her etc) but did improve with this over the session to the point that the trainer was able to crouch a small distance away and call Lexi with a decent amount of enthusiasm without her breaking. Next time we'd like to see her not break as much with people distractions os that we can get her drop really solid. Keep using drop regularly at home and when out and about to get her really good at this skill.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For her second session we worked on Lexi's place skill with high levels of distraction. We focused on sending her to and from place past toys and food which she did fantastic with! Her focus and engagement with the trainer was great which allowed her to ignore these distractions. Next time we'd like to push her skill a bit further and practice sending her to other objects as place. At home keep using this skill often and use lots of distractions to keep it at a high level.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For her last session we worked on Lexi's loose lead skill in thr classroom around other dogs. If focused she did very well but would get easily distracted by differences in her environment (ie. When a dog was brought into the classroom and later when that dog was moved to a crate). When distracted she would pull but after several laps would start engaging back with the trainer. Next time we'd like to see her be less reactive to other dogs and keep her focus on the trainer as her loose lead is great when she is focused. At home practice walking in familiar environments with distractions to help her her focused.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Lexi spent 15 minutes today on a passive place session. She did break a few times as there was a high energy dog doing play nearby but did really well considering that distraction.||Focus: Duration||B|
We recommend your next step should be…

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.
