|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: To start off Molly’s day, we began with her ‘ring toss’ trick, still focusing on getting her to hold the ring on her own. She has good knowledge to mouth it, but still does not hold onto it enough for the trainer to let go. Keep practicing this skill at home and if she holds onto it for longer than before, reward her heavily so she begins to learn that, that is what we are after! She is a clever girl and we are sure she will get this!!||Focus: Duration||C+|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: Next up, Molly worked on her ‘paws up’ skill, using the inflatable pods. At first she was a bit nervous and would only put 1 paw on, but with lots of encouragement and treatos, she got 2 paws on!! Once the other dogs in the room started to get a bit louder, Molly became nervous again and would just stay in a drop, but still taking treats. With some more cuddles and encouragement, she was able to perform her paws up again, yay!! Keep practicing this at home and building her confidence, we would love for Molly to be able to do this skill no matter the distractions in the room.||Focus: Confidence||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: To finish off, Molly revisited her ‘ring toss’ skill again, this time pushing her a bit more! Molly was a bit more confident this session as dogs had left the room, and she was so good at mouthing at the ring on the ground, and even lifted it up a little bit! We understand she can do this skill better at home, but as she is a bit more nervous here, it is great she did this well! Keep testing her at home, she does know what she needs to do, just needs some encouragement!!||Focus: Repetition||B|

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.
