|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Spin||Comment: For his first session we worked on Mojo's spin skill to help with his recall. Having a skill that makes him turn away before returning helps build that desire to return that is crucial in recall training. Mojo really smashed his spin skill today - he was able to do it while stationary and walking with no issues. We also had him spin on the spot and then chase the trainer a few steps backwards to help with that drive to return to get the treat after the "yes" marker. We started phasing out the lure - Mojo is great at following a fairly hand hand signal and verbal cue for spin which is fantastic progress. Next time we'd like to continue phasing out the lure and have him do his spins in a more distracting environment. Keep up the great work at home and continue using the spins skill as something fun to work on in between basic obedience skills.||Focus: Repetition||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For his second session we started work on the "around" skill for Mojo. This can also help with recalls as it teaches him to go away to a point and then return. This skill can eventually be built up to have him leave from your side, go around an object and then return to you. Mojo happily followed the treat around the bucket and back to place. As it is still new to him he wouldn't do it without the treat but works well with the lure. Next time we'd like to see him less reliant on the lure and to be able to follow a hand around the bucket. At home practice having him on place, luring him around an obstacle and luring him back on place. As he follows the lure easily you can add the verbal cue of "around" as you do it.||Focus: Repetition||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.
