|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: This session focused on his drop and middle skill while another trainer was working with a dog. Ozzie seemed a bit unsure of them at the start but quickly forgot they were even there, showing his trainer great engagement. We just continued our session as though nothing was different and Ozzie followed along. We practiced some emergency drops, getting him to drop while the trainer kept walking. He was a bit slow to get into position so we helped him out by slowing our pace then continuing to walk once he was in position.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: This session we worked on Ozzie’s place and drops around a completely new person. This staff member was shadowing us for the day to learn some training. Ozzie was a bit cautious of her to begin with so we started working on his skills around them, making the distance smaller and smaller. Eventually we had him in a drop and the other person threw some high value treats to him. Ozzie was quite distracted by smells in the wind today, he would occasionally forget to listen to his trainer but overall did his skills 90% of the time. Once in position he had great duration. We were able to work up to Ozzie taking a treat from the other persons hand, we immediately recalled him away and made a huge fuss over him. Doing this means there is no expectation for him to remain close to this person but it can be super rewarding. We didn’t push him too far since he did a great job and wanted to end on a good note.||Focus: Conditioning||B+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For the last session we practiced his loose lead walking. Again he was a little distracted but still followed the trainers lead and responded to cues/movement nicely. We spent a few minutes just walking around the new trainer, then eventually handed over the lead since he didn’t seem cautious of them at all this session. Ozzie was a bit confused initially when the other person moved off with him but so long as I was close by he started engaging with them and walking nicely by their side!! This is a huge step for Ozzie, I am super proud of him, you should be too!||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.
