|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Molly In Molly’s first session we worked on “place” with her, because she lacks confidence and and can’t settle without her brother we put her on “place” then we would say “break” to realise her, we kept doing that until she was clam. Molly is such a sweetheart but she just needs to try and settle without her brother. In her next session I would like to see how long it will take for her to settle on her own, so we would leave her on place until she does settle her self. Training this at home is a must especially if you only need to take Hutchy to the vet. Get her bed or a Matt and tell her to go to “place” if she doesn’t go there lure her nose with food, she wasn’t taking food here but she does know her words, if you have somewhere you can tie her up while she’s on place that would be fantastic because then if she goes to “break” her self she will correct her self.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
|Skill learnt: Exposure||Comment: In Molly’s second session we trained “exposure” we do this when dogs lack confidence. So in this session is really simple we just walked her around the classroom to get her used to all the different smells and objects in the classroom. Molly didn’t want to do anything else besides go back to her brother. The trainer was making her walk around the room but she would just lay down near the door and wouldn’t want to move, so we just put her on place until she setteld. In her next session we would like to she her trying to built her confidence up, making her walk around the room and not just letting her go back to her brother will help her a lot. I would love to see her grow a lot more and become more confident with her self and the trainer. Training this at home is easy, she is probably already used to all the smells but see what she does without Hutchy, making her walk around the back yard with our her brother and see what she’s like. If she’s doing great reward her but if she doesn’t take food just reward her with a cuddle or a pat.||Focus: Repetition||X|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In Molly’s third session we just trained “place” again but we left her on “place” until she was clam. At the start of this session she wouldn’t stop howling and yelping but towards the end she laid down and relaxed a lot, we made sure we rewarded her for that because that’s exactly what we want. Next time we would like to see if she could clam down quickly again she was still not taking food. I left her on place while I was training hutchy, at the start she was barking but she did clam down pretty quickly, next time see how long it takes her to clam on “place” without her brother in the room. Training this at home is easy just like the first session, put her on place either a bed or a mat she should go to place on her own, then either tie her to a poll or something where she can’t walk of off “place”. Doing this will make her settle.||Focus: Repetition||C-|
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.
