|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: We worked on his inside and outside turns while also building engagement. We worked outside while it was still shady, mainly up and down the driveway (some people and dog distractions were present). Marvel showed some improvement with his inside turns, we didn’t have to lure him as much, he was responding nicely to the trainers movement - holding back slightly and watching where the trainer was going. His engagement was great although he would momentarily lose some focus if someone walked by, it was easy to regain his attention though. Keep practicing his walking and build that engagement.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: We had some fun working on his place skill this session. Mixing it up with increasing the distance we sent him to place, adding distractions while on there and even throwing in some middles (to spice it up a little). Marvel is doing really well with his place training, keep making it as “bomb proof” as possible so it can be used for different scenarios.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Lastly we worked on his drop skill outside while the handy man was high-pressure washing the fountain. This offered the perfect distraction for Marvel, he was quite intrigued. We practiced long durations while the trainer moved around him as well as some quick high energy repetitions! Marvel smashed it today :)||Focus: Duration||B+|
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.
