|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Norbit was very excitable to start off with today and was pulling a lot on the lead so we worked on loose lead with some drops to help settle him down in the classroom. It took him a little while to focus on the trainer but once he did he was able to show great engagement during the walk. He did struggle a bit outside but again started to settle after a while and while it was not as good as indoors he did improve. With his drops he was fairly good and only missed the cue once. He did initially need a lower hand signal due to his focus level but by the end he was going just by verbal cue. Keep working on his loose lead and emergency drops at home as this can be a great way to turn his excitable energy into focused energy for training.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For his second session we continued on with sit pretty. Norbit is quite good with this, he just needs to build up his balance a bit more. The focus of today was having him lean a bit further back for balance and not being reliant on the trainer for balance. He stayed in his sit quite well for majority of his attempts and only used the trainer for balance a few times. Great progress from Norbit!||Focus: Duration||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For his last session we worked on rollover. Norbit was really good one direction but struggled with the other way so we worked on building up on his not so good side. He was happy to follow the lure so it didn't take long for him to be happily rolling over either way which is good progress for him! For the last few minutes we worked on fading the lure - on his good side he was able to rollover with a high lure and verbal cue. Keep working on fading out the lure and conditioning the verbal cue to help neaten up this skill.||Focus: Repetition||B+|

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.
