|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Desensitisation||Comment: Oil’s first session was traffic distractions with drops. The trainer took Oli to the bottom of the paddock. Oli was very interested in the livestock smells of the paddock and as such he was very sloppy with his drops. The trainer did lots of quick repetitions and had to bend over with a hand signal and at times a food lure to get Oli to drop. He was also not holding position long before popping straight back up! The traffic provided a good backdrop of distractions to really focus on getting the drops better. By the end of the session Oli was much better. By having Oli doing a job it kept his mind off the traffic.||Focus: Conditioning||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Next up was emergency drops. The trainer took Oli into the training yard, however he was to distracted to do as well as the trainer knew he was. After serveral attempts the trainer took Oli back to basics in the classroom. It didn’t take long before Oli was showing that he did indeed know drop. At that point the trainer was able to attempt a couple of emergency drops. Oli was taking a few steps after being told drop so going forward a stronger drop skill is needed and a quick drop.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: Last for Oli was recalls. The trainer took Oli up to near the top road. This meant traffic distractions but from a bit further away. At first Oli was to interested in the new smells again. But a little tug on the leash and Oli returned his attention back to the trainer. As the session progressed Oli settled into the session his recalls became much better. The trainer had Oli on a normal length lead, which was sufficient for where training was occurring. Keep working on this with low level distractions and high value treats.||Focus: Distance||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.
