|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: First session Odin worked on his place skill. He is showing good progress in this skill, we worked on the classroom today with other dogs and staff nearby. He was a bit hesitant around some staff he hadn’t seen before and a bit focused on another dog being trained nearby but we were able to regain his focus back to the skill using treats. He is showing better understanding of his release word “break” and holding his duration well around low distractions and happily laying down and settling on the bed. Keep building up his duration before increasing distraction levels.||Focus: Duration||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Odins second session we worked on his drop skill. We focused on continuing to build his duration around trainer movement/distractions. He knows his drop skill well and will go into position from the verbal cue. He can be quick to pop up out of the drop when the trainer picks up their energy levels and he thinks it’s time to play, when he does this we say uh uh and redirect him back into a drop. Keep building his duration at home.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: Final session Odin started to learn Paws Up. This skill is not only a bit of fun but great for confidence building and building rear end awareness. To teach the skill we use treats to lure Odin to put his front paws up onto an object. He wasn’t sure about the round pod so we used a step instead. He picked this up well and we were able to build some duration before releasing him and repeating. This is something that can be worked on further at home using different objects and while out on walks.||Focus: Foundation||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.
