|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Molly’s first session we trained emergency drops, because she knows her drops well we thought we would add emergency drops to push her limits. This session we went outside with her. Molly did pretty well with this skill she was abit nervous at first but when you charge your markers such as “yes” she gains focus on you and her focus stays on for the whole session. Next session I would like to work on this more with her outside and see if we can get her into a drop and keep walking straight away, if not simple lures to gain her focus on you. Training this at home either do this inside or out in the back yard, have her on a lead and simply say “drop” while keep walking, if she drops reward with “yes” and treats if she doesn’t say “nah ah” and pull her lead to the floor but as soon as you say “nah ah” she knows to drop straight away.||Focus: Distance||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Molly’s second session we trained place with distraction and duration, we did place outside while another dog was in training. With distance we would send her to place half a meter from the bed then further next time. Again Molly was abit nervous at the start but with a lot of correction she was perfect the whole way through. Next session I would like to work on this again and see how far we can get from the bed to say place and for her to actually go to place. Training this at home get her bed and use that as “place”. Sending her to place start from standing at the end of the bed and say “place” once all four paws are on place reward with “yes” and treats, keep working on this but every time take a step back from place to see how far you can get until she doesn’t listen to you.||Focus: Distance||B+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Molly’s third session we trained lose lead outside, this skill will help with taking her for walks and her engagement with you as a owner. Molly was abit distracted at first and I think she was pretty exhausted as well, she doesn’t pull when she’s on the lead she was just getting distracted pretty easily. Next session I would like to work on this more with her, either in the classroom or outside. Training this at home have her on lead and treats in the hand close to her, if she goes to pull walk the other way and keep walking back and forth until she stops, but she didn’t pull once while I was training her, if she looks up at you while walking reward with “yes” and treats as that’s exactly what we want from her especially when taking her for a walk outside.||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.
