|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For her first session we took advantage of a break in the rain to work on her loose lead outside. On the pavement she was really good with great engagement. She did struggle a bit to stay focused when moving to the grassy area - she lost a lot of engagement and would get instantly distracted by other people walking by. Continuing to work on her loose lead outside around distractions will help her to strengthen her skill and should be worked on the next time she is in.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: For her second session we continued on with her paws up skill to build confidence. Molly was great with the bucket, she put both paws up each time she was asked. To work on her next level we started with the inflatable Wobble cushion. Molly was more nervous of this and though she would place one paw lightly on it she struggled to be confident enough to put weight on the paw. Continuing to work on this will help to further build her confidence.||Focus: Repetition||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For her last session we worked on drop duration. Molly was very happy to just lie down in the classroom, even with other dogs around. We also tested her with some movement which she got up once or twice with then was really good. Working on more movement distractions will help increase her skill level.||Focus: Distraction||B+|

D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
