|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Loki’s first session we focused on drop, I saw that he gets protective over your 3 year old. So teaching this will be very handy when on walks, for now I would go for walks with Loki and your 3 year old just practice this at home first. Because he is still a puppy he will push your limits, he does know he words but sometimes he just chooses not to do it, he chose not to do it we use something that’s called a “foot break” what you do is put your foot on the lead as close as you can to his head when doing this, this will pull his head down to the ground where he has no where to go beside the “drop” this would be perfect out on a walk if he does get protective over your daughter. Loki is smart he knows his words but he does choose not to do it sometimes that’s when you have to be firm with him and use the “foot break”. Next time we would like to see him listen to the word “drop” and him actually doing it. Training this at home is a must because you can use this once he gets the hang of it out side while going for a walk!!||Focus: Repetition||C-|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In Loki’s second session we trained “place”, place is a good way to get your dog to clam down. He knows place very well and he’s very good driven which made it easier on us. Loki did extremely well in this session and knew exactly what he had to do for food. In his next session I would like to add some distance and distractions to see how he goes on place. Training this at home is easy, get his bed or a mat and tell him to go to “place” if he doesn’t listen life his nose until both four paws are on the bed or mat, keep doing this until he gets the hang of it.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In Loki’s last session we trained “lose lead”. We trained this because we wanted to see how well he would walk next to the trainer and gain focus on the trainer and not the surroundings. In this session is was very well behaved if he walked ahead or pull we would walk back the other way, but we didn’t even have to do that at all. Next session I would like to add more distractions around to see how he goes with it all. Training this at home is easy put him on the lead and walk back and fourth if he pulls walk the other way, and if he looks at you reward him because we want him to be engaged with you and not what is happening around him.||Focus: Repetition||B|
We recommend your next step should be…

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.
