|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: In pipers first session we trained recalls. Following from last week when she was distracted I would say the word ‘come’ then luring her up so she had to rest her head on my stomach. This teaches the dogs that the word ‘come’ means come right to you and not just next to you. She did well with this skill, we will keep practicing this and next time we will see if she can do it from a distance.||Focus: Repetition||A|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Pipers second session we practiced her drops. We focused on getting her into a drop with out a hand signal just saying the word ‘drop’ she did really well towards the end and started listening well.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: Her last session we practiced paws up. She was quite nervous of the object at first so if she sniffed it I was just rewarding her for that, then she progressed to one paw and towards the end she got both her paws on the object which was fantastic, would like to keep practicing this skill until she confident enough.||Focus: Duration||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.
