Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: First session Maggie worked on her place skill. She is progressing well with this and beginning to understand the implied duration and waiting on the bed until her release word “break”. She still steps off the bed around higher energy distractions/movement from her trainer, when she does this we tell her uh uh and guide her back to the bed. Keep working on this at home around low distractions, gradually increasing distractions as she becomes more reliable. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Maggie’s second session we worked on her drop skill. Maggie still needs a bit of a lure to help get into the position. Today we focused on repetition of the skill and building duration around low distractions. Maggie can still pop up around low distractions but is beginning to show more understanding of this, keep working on this at home fading out the lure as she shows more reliability going into the drop. Focus: Duration C+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Maggie’s last session we worked on her loose lead. Today we worked just outside the class on the pavement, she was quite distracted by the other dog being trained nearby to start with but as the session progressed she began to focus more on her trainer. Maggie can still pull ahead at times but is progressing well. Anytime she pulls ahead we stop and move the other way. Keep working on this at home in familiar environments focusing on her engagement and manners. Focus: Distraction B

We recommend your next step should be…

Attend a Basic Obedience Course

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.
