|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In her first session, Molly focused on further developing her skill 'place' with repetitions and distractions (human and ball movement). We focused on this skill to help her decision making as part of her canine reactivity. Molly performed very well, she broke once when the ball first went past her. But with some guidance she began to maintain it well. Next time we would like to continue challenging Molly with high distractions while remaining on place. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her second session, Molly focused on further developing her skill 'drop' with repetitions and distractions (another dog training within the classroom). We focused on this skill to improve her decision making as part of her canine reactivity. Molly performed well, she can lose engagement and break drop, but with some guidance she redirects her focus quickly and maintains it well. Molly responds well to the verbal cue 'drop' with a hand signal, she can struggle with distance and distractions (human movement), we hope to focus on this in her next session. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In her final session, Molly focused on further developing her skill 'loose lead walking' with repetitions. We focused on this skill as Molly can pull while on lead. Molly struggled to engage with her trainer while walking, but with some guidance she quickly began to redirect her focus and perform well. Next time we would like to see Molly show more engagement towards her trainer. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||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.
