Oaklee did well overall today! He was a little fussy with his treats but still bounced back.

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

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: First up, Oaklee practiced his ‘place training’ skill, focusing on sending to and from while having dog distractions in the classroom. At first he was quite distracted, but after a few reps he got into the rhythm of things and performed so well! He built beautiful engagement with the trainer and was so focused. Keep practicing this skill at home and work on slowly increasing the distance and see how he goes. Great work!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: Next up, Oaklee practiced his ‘recall’ skill outside, using a short line. The trainer attempted to begin this skill in the classroom, but Oaklee was far too distracted and did not feel like participating and stopped taking treats as well. Once the trainer moved outside, Oaklee perked up a lot and began performing beautifully! His recalls do need lots of work still, but he did awesome just building the foundation. To get his attention, call his name, once he looks at you, say “come” and be sure to be way more exciting than his surroundings to get him to follow you. Lure him into a sit once he is close enough, say “yes” and reward.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: To finish up, the trainer attempted to get Oaklee to practice his ‘drop’ skill, but he was far too stimulated in the classroom and instead just ran around, ignoring the trainer. Instead of pushing for something and potentially damaging the training, the trainer took Oaklee outside and worked on his ‘loose lead’ walking, focusing on building his engagement. Oaklee did really well! He responded well to both his “yes” and “ah ah” markers, changing what needed to be done. Keep practicing this at home with him and once his engagement is stronger, we can begin to increase his distractions.||Focus: Distraction||B|
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.
