|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For his first session the trainer worked on his orbit skill. The trainer had a focus on getting Pickle to do the skill very close to the trainers leg . To begin he did need to be lured a few times but the trainer was able to drop these after only a few repetitions. He was also a bit far away from the trainer to start so the trainer made sure to use these early lures to draw him in nice and close. He did much better by the end of the session doing the skill without the lure at all and doing a nice, close orbit for his final one!||Focus: Conditioning||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: (Around) Initially the trainer wanted to try him out on the play pen today, however as the session started he was just too distracted here so in order to set him up for success they took him back to the classroom in order to make sure he was focusing on the training and not trying to play too much. Once in the classroom the trainer ran him through a briefly refresher course as it had been a little bit since he had done this. Once he was all caught up which took no time at all the trainer started on adding some extra targets for Pickle to go around today. The trainer used the place bed as a base for pickle to make it easier to return around the different cones. He did amazing with this today being able to target what ever the trainer was pointing at and the trainer was even able to make him go around the pole in the middle of the classroom. He did need some work to keep his focus on the task at hand but he was able to be engaged the entire session and worked hard.||Focus: Distance||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: (Skateboard) For his final session today the trainer thought they would do an old skill Pickle hadn’t done for a while and tested him in his skate board! Pickle shredded the gnar today being able to do the skill from the verbal command alone! He was able to also do it outside on the concrete and if it wasn’t for the skateboard turning into the wall he would have made it down the entire concrete corridor! He smashed this today and the trainer was so impressed with his skating skills! Something they did do to help him stay on the board a little more was closer to the end of the session the trainer out down a few cones like a finishing line for a race, he was only rewarded if he pushed the board past these cones, if he got off beforehand he wasn’t rewarded, as he successfully did this the cones were pushed further and further away until he was riding almost the entire corridor!||Focus: Repetition||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.
