|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Millie’s first session today we worked on her drop skill inside with dog distraction and then moved outside with all the worldly distractions like sheep, sheep poo and cows. She did really well with most distractions however the animal poo was a tough one for her. She broke a couple times so we moved further away and slowly built up engagement and made progress back towards the distraction. After a while she didn’t care and showed the trainer 100% engagement.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For her second session today we worked on her loose lead skill. She did really well unless there were smelly distractions! The trainer would stop and wait for her to show engagement and then keep walking. Sometimes if she was pulling like crazy, the trainer would wait for engagement do a couple skills and then the reward was for her to smell whatever it was that interested her. Overall she does very well and does have great engagement when focused.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: For her last session today we got her working on her touch skill and using the treat and train machine to reward. She was super enthusiastic about this and had obviously done it before. She took a while to understand that touch meant treat, but after a few repetitions she did great!||Focus: Repetition||B+|
We recommend your next step should be…

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.
