|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Meka focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead' within the classroom. Meka was initially distracted by the classroom environment (three dogs in crates, one dog training) and struggled to follow a lure. However, the trainer began to use the lure like a game and Meka loved it. He began to show great engagement and work well. Have a look at our Instagram story to see his progress.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his second session, Meka focused on further developing his skill 'place' with duration under distractions. We focused on this skill to build his impulse control. Meka performed very well, the trainer was very impressed with his progress. He showed good duration and distance, the trainer began to challenge him with distractions including, tennis balls being bounced, rolled and moved in a shape (his name). He initially struggled but with some guidance he quickly began to maintain it well.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his final session, Meka focused on further developing his skill 'drop' within the high distracting classroom (one dog training, three dogs in crates). Meka followed a lure into drop well and showed good duration. The trainer was able to begin adding distance. He can become distracted when another dog is in close proximity, but he does redirect his focus quickly when the trainer makes the lure a game again (adds quick, sharp movements to act as prey to draw attention to lure).||Focus: Foundation||B|

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.
