|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Luther’s first session was drop. Drop is an important skill as it is the go to skill to aid in stopping jumping. Luther was quite reluctant to drop at first and was to busy sniffing everything in the classroom. However the trainer did a number of quick repetitions and with the help of the Uhuh word Luther started to focus better on the job at hand. He still is quite slow with his drops so at home so quick repetitions and use a little leash pressure and the Uhuh word if Luther doesn’t get into position. Towards the end of the session the trainer took Luther outside. Again Luther was distracted by the new smells but was quicker to settle into this new environment. At home make sure if you ask Luther to drop he does drop. And change up his environment so he learns to drop regardless of the distractions.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Place was the focus of the second session and this was done outside. Again at first Luther wanted to push the boundaries and not go into place. But the Uhuh word and a tug in the leash meant he followed into place. Once he settled into the session the trainer was able to start sending Luther to place from a distance. He was quite good at this but did break a few times. Just like drop practice place in different areas. It would be good to have Luther not breaking position as much next time.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: Luther worked on his recalls for his final session and what a fantastic job he did! The trainer used a long line and even with dog distractions, Luther turned and came when called without leash pressure at all. As the session continued he needed a slight tug on the lead but overall his recalls were awesome! Well done Luther.||Focus: Repetition||B|

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.
