|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Luther’s first session we practiced his place skill we focused on duration and distance. He did really well with this skill. We then started sending him to place from a distance and did fantastic, broke a few times at the start but progressed fantastically.||Focus: Distraction||A+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: Luther’s second session we worked on his recalls. We had our mentor down last week from Melbourne and he taught us a few new ways he trains some skills. First we charged the word ‘come’ same as our reward marker. After a few try’s of this we then lured his nose right on our stomach so he knows when we saw ‘come’ we mean come right to us. He did really well and we kept practicing this skill.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: In Luther’s last session we practiced paws up, first we did it on a big step and he was doing it perfectly. So then we worked on a small object at first he was unsure of the object so it took a lot of luring. But half way through he did so well and was doing it fantastically.||Focus: Duration||A|
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.
