|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: First session Millie worked on her drop skill. Today we worked outside around other dogs to build the distraction level and help with her neutrality around other dogs. She was quite excited for training and a bit distracted to start but responded well to the verbal cue and held her drop around the distractions. She had no interest in the other dogs and had great engagement with her trainer. Keep working on this in different environments to push the skill further.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: Millie’s second session we started teaching her middles. This skill is not only a bit of fun but also a great safety skill. Millie initially was quite hesitant to go between the trainers legs so we spent the start of her session throwing treats between the trainers legs encouraging Millie to walk between them. She became more confident and we were able to lure her between the trainers legs and into a sit. Millie is still in the early stages of this skill and just luring. Once she is more confident and reliable in the positioning we can begin adding a verbal cue.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Final session Millie worked on her loose lead. We started in the class around other dogs and Millie quickly showed some fantastic engagement and following direction change well. We moved outside and this was a bit more distracting and she did pull ahead at times, when she did this we stopped and moved the other way. After a few minutes she began engaging more.||Focus: Distraction||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.
