|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Loki’s first session was drops. The trainer started in the kennels and Loki did quite well here. The trainer moved onto the cattery. Once again Loki really struggled with this. He did not drop on command and wouldn’t hold the position at all. As the session progressed Loki was able to hold the position for longer but was still reluctant to leave the cat smells to get into the drop position when told. The trainer will continue to work with him on this so that Loki will actually be able to drop in the actual cattery and not just the outside section of it.||Focus: Distraction||D+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Loki’s second session was loose lead walking. The trainer took him into the paddock and as usual the smells are very enticing to Loki and he struggles to settle and get his engagement back on the trainer. However he did get there and his reward was to be able to stop and indulge the smelling of the smells. To get Loki’s engagement back the trainer walked short distances and kept changing directions. He didn’t lunge at all but was keen to pull to get the smells. It was nice to see him settle and have that time to enjoy the new smells as his reward.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Loki’s final session was further work on his bow trick. He really was not interested at the start. More intent on smelling the smells that were in the classroom. As the trainer worked to get his engagement Loki slowly came around and started focusing on what he needed to do for treats. At first he was going into the drop position but soon worked out that wasn’t what was needed. As the session progressed Loki was holding the position for longer. It was great to see. Next time the trainer would like him to bow without a food lure and to hold it for longer. But it was great to see him progress today. He did well.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
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.
