|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: For our first session with Ollie, we worked on his recall. We started on a short lead to strengthen his engagement, before then moving into one of the play pens to increase distractions and distance. He demonstrated good recall when given his cue, however, was sometimes distracted by surrounding smells. Overall, he did well. Continue with higher level distractions and repetition at home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Play||Comment: Our second session focused on Ollie’s impulse control with a tug toy, surrounded by various noise distractions. He was able to demonstrate this skill well, leaving the tug toy when commanded “out.” His ability to control his impulse is constantly improving with repetition and gradual increase of distractions. Keep practicing!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: The last session with Ollie worked on our cafe training through his drop skill. We setup a cafe like environment and cued Ollie to a drop position next to the table. With various distractions such as noises, smells and the sight of other people and dogs, Ollie held his duration of a solid drop quite well. Continue to practice exposing Ollie to more distracting environments to gradually improve his ability to settle||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.
