|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Millie's first session was loose lead walking and after the trainer got her out of the kennels, (she was a bit excited so the trainer had to walk her up and back the aisle a few times) she did an amazing job. There was a new person around at the time and she did pull a couple of times towards him. However, we practiced heading towards him and then changing direction as she started to pull and she soon stopped pulling. The trainer even took the check chain off and walked her on her flat collar and she still did really well. She still showed interest in trying to smell things etc but responded with a Millie and a change of direction. It was a fantastic session.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: First up for the second session was red light green light. Using sticks as Millie's motivator the trainer had a great game with Millie and she once again smashed this session and did a great job. The next part of the session was drops around the guys building things on the property. She did break position a couple of times but even when one of the men started up the angle grinder and used it to try and distract Millie, she held fast and most of the time kept her focus on the trainer. Once again so impressed with Millie in this session.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Place training was Millie's final session and once again the trainer took her around the guys working. One of the men (also a trainer) deliberatly walked close to Millie and tried different incidental things to temp Millie to break! Once again she held fast. She did break a couple of times and that was trying to follow her trainer! But all in all she did an exceptional job around distractions she has not encountered here before.||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.
