|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Piper’s first session was looked lead walking. The trainer started on an area where there was lots of smells but this was to much of an distraction for Piper. The trainer then started to work in the car park and driveway. This was a little less distracting for Piper and she worked well. When she did pull the trainer changed direction and got Piper’s focus back with the yes marker. Keep practicing at home with medium level distractions before tackling bigger ones.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Next up was drop. The trainer started in the classroom with dog and people distraction and Piper did a great job. The trainer went outside near the animals and practiced drop there. At first Piper was quite distracted but the trainer increased the distance between Piper and the animals and Piper was able to focus on her job better. As Piper progressed the trainer was able to take Piper closer. It was a good session and Piper did a great job focusing on the trainer regardless of the distractions.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Last up for Piper was place. The trainer did this inside with dog and people distraction. The trainer also added in bubble blowing and Piper was content to lay on place regardless of what was happening around her. The trainer then released Piper and revved her up for a game of Red Light Green Light. When Piper was revved right up the trainer then told Piper to go to place. Initially a little slow to work it out Piper was soon doing this with ease! The trainer ended the session with around. Luring Piper off of place and around a cone back to place. This helps with a recall as we are sending a dog away but getting them to return to us!||Focus: Distraction||B+|

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.
