|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building)||Comment: Milly’s first session was the confidence course. Having a different trainer meant Millie was a little unsure. By allowing Millie to run through the course means she experiences wins. This gives her confidence and sets her up for her training day. Millie did a great job going through the course but did struggle without the trainers encouragement. Next time it would be great to see Millie go through without as much reliance on the trainer.||Focus: Confidence||X|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Next up for Millie was place. Millie does have a basic grasp of this skill and it’s great for her to further proof this as it gives her a job to do and allows her to relax and watch the world go by. When the session first started Millie was getting straight off the bed. The trainer did a number of repetitions and then started to increase the duration that Millie held place for. Millie did well with two other dogs nearby. She did bark once when she was off place. But as soon as she was back on she was back at her job. Keep practicing in different parts of the house to get Millie used to different distractions.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Last session was a focus on drops. Millie really struggled with this and at times got vocal and mouthy. This is not acceptable and the trainer did quick repetitions to keep Millie going and understanding that her bad behavior does not get her what she wants. As the session progressed Millie started dropping better. At home keep those rules and boundaries going. If you ask her to do something then she must do it.||Focus: Repetition||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.
