|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: First session Louie worked on his drops outside on the grass with a dog distraction. We played tug to help burn off some extra energy and this is a great way to redirect his focus if he becomes fixated. Louie did SO well this session we were able to get a metre and a bit away from the other dog and he kept his focus on his trainer! He dropped almost each time he was asked from verbal only, he was a bit cheeky to start as he was so excited but he smashed it this session!!||Focus: Conditioning||B+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Louie’s second session we worked on some loose lead. We have a fence area set up near our classroom which allows us to work dogs in closer proximity of each other but having the fence there for safety. Todays focus was purely just having Louie engage with the trainer over the other dog. He was a bit bouncy and pully to start so we did some drops and just allowed him to watch the other dog go by, rewarding for calm behaviour. We then continued walking again and Louie did quite well, majority of the time he was able to focus on his trainer even when the dog was walking by on the other side of the fence. He did have a couple of grumbles/snaps towards the fence during the start of the session but by the end of the session he had no more of that behaviour. This is great progress for Louie and we will keep working on this with him!||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Play||Comment: Final session we ended on some fun with the springpole. Louie had a massive day with his dog conditioning and it can be quite a lot for any dog so we wanted to end with some light and fun that we know he loves. Louie had a blast with this and it was a great way to finish up his day. We also focused on his place skill, getting him to wait on place before saying “get it” and allowing him to play with the springpole.||Focus: Conditioning||X|
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.
