Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: His first session focused on his drops. We worked all around the facility, utilising different environments for different distractions. He did really well, we also incorporated different trainer distractions to test him! Make sure to focus on a mixture of quick repetitions as well as longer durations so he doesn’t just predict what’s going to happen next!
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: We practiced his place, drop and sit skill this session, doing a circuit. Marvel was a bit distracted initially but it didn’t take him long to settle. He showed some great engagement and listening skills. See how you go chaining skills together and making him do a few skills before getting the reward!
|Skill learnt: Middle Position
|Comment: This last session was all about his middles skill. We practiced lots of repetitions from different angles. He is getting really good with his duration in position as well. To finish the session off we worked around the cattery for some desensitisation since he was quite distracted by all the smells!

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.
