|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For her first session today the trainer wanted to get her activated and excited for the rest of the day! In order to do this they took Miley for a loose lead walk around the property letting her have a bit of an adventure. While on the loose lead walk the trainer took the opportunity to work on her basic obedience skills as well including sit, drop, recall and place on some random objects, while she is good when the trainer is fully standing up she really want to break her positions and cuddle half the time so the trainer worked on slowly lowering themselves closer to Miley, each time she jumped up the trainer stood up and cut off the energy from the interaction and only continued giving her attention when she remained in the drop or sit, all in all a fun and adventurous first session with a little bit of obedience mixed in.||Focus: Conditioning||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For her next session the trainer wanted to have some fun while still challenging Miley a little bit. In order to do this they attempted to chain two tricks together today, the two that were chained together were spin and middles. The idea is that we ask Miley for a spin and then in quick succession ask her for middles. The multiple skills and quick succession helps really solidify her basic skills for these two tricks. As you can see in her social video today Miley did so well with this, while the trainer was using a lure Miley was happily following it and doing multiple skills before expecting to be rewarded, her enthusiasm and excitement during this session were especially nice to see and she seemed to have a real fun time working this skill, so much so that when another dog came into the room it was very easy to get her focused back on the training and doing the skills even with this big distraction on the room.||Focus: Repetition||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For her last session the trainer wanted to work on a new fun skill with Miley and so did some roll over with her! They decided on this skill as she was already showing behaviours of rolling on her back so the trainer wanted to pair this with a skill. She did really well today as the trainer was able to lure her over and get an actual “roll over” in her first session which usually doesn’t happen! This shows just how when we train a skill the dog is already showing it makes the training much quicker and easier!||Focus: Foundation||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.
