It was great to see and train with Miss Millie today. She was happy to be back training and learning new skills.

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In her first session, Millie focused on further developing her skill 'loose lead' around the Pet Retreat facility. Millie was initially distracted and struggled to engage with her trainer, however when the trainer began to incorporate known skills such as spin, she began to redirect her focus onto the trainer. Once engaged Millie performed very well.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her second session, Millie focused on further developing her skill 'drop' with repetitions and duration. The trainers have noticed Millie can struggle with duration when in drop. Millie initially struggled to remain in drop, however with some guidance she quickly began to maintain it well in a range of distracting environments (inside with dog distractions, outside and cattery).||Focus: Duration||B+|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: In her final session, Millie focused on further developing her skill 'touch' or 'targeting' a target stick within the classroom. Millie initially was distracted and struggled to perform, however as the session progressed, she began to touch the target stick. Millie progressed well throughout the session, the trainer began to move the target tick while she continued to touch it.||Focus: Foundation||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.
