Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For her first session we worked on loose lead starting off in a low distraction environment (classroom). Once she was showing decent focus we moved just outside the classroom on an enclosed paved area. Murphy did have quite a bit of pulling at the start but by turning around each time she pulled ahead she settled better and was able to maintain good pace with the trainer. She was a bit distracted by another dog walking past but didn't need much luring to stay with the trainer. Keep working on this at home and making sure you are turning around each time she pulls on the lead. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For her second session we worked on the place skill with a focus on duration and movement distractions. She was a bit cheeky with this and did have some breaks early on in the session especially with faster movement or the trainer running from the bed. She did improve in this over time and was able to hold well for the trainer on a scooter and bouncing balls past her by the end. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For her final session we revisited loose lead outside again. This time we started off on the pavement and progressed to working in the carpark for the added distraction. There was less pulling this session so she is certainly showing improvement with turning around when pulling. She would get a little interested in people walking past but was easy to recapture focus. Focus: Distraction B+

We recommend your next step should be…

Attend a Basic Obedience Course

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 DoneĀ (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.
