Marie had a fund ay working on her skills outside, going back over her skills under distraction, getting plenty of cuddles in between lessons.
It was a PLEASURE training with your pooch today and we look forward to continuing to help you achieve your goals, skills and improve your relationship.
Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: We took Marie outside to work on her place skill. Marie was a bit cheeky at the start of the lesson, investigating smells instead of engaging with her trainer. After a bit of repetition, Marie was locked on to her training, happily hopping on and off the bed. We started to add in some distractions as well as distance to test Marie. At first, this made Marie step off early but as we worked, Marie started to stay on until her release word.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Marie went for a walk around the facility working on keeping a loose lead as well as engagement. Marie did well across the gravel, losing attention as we got to the grass. We spent some time doing repetition over the grass areas, rewarding Marie when she was focused on the task. Marie would stop to sniff periodically, but after some repetition she stayed by her trainers side.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: We worked on Marie’s weave skill in the classroom, focusing on phasing out the treat lures completely and lengthening repetitions between paying Marie with a treat. Marie engaged well throughout the lesson, increasing the number of weaves each time. As we continued practicing we made it to 6 weaves before giving Marie a treat consistently.||Focus: Duration||C+|
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.
