|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Piper’s first session was loose lead walking. She did this outside with her sister as a big distraction as well as another dog running in the paddock. It did take a little bit for her to settle but once she did her engagement was fantastic. Using treats and a well structured walk helps keep Piper focus.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: Next up was recalls. At the first this was done inside with another dog nearby who was very excited. Piper did well and was very focused. Outside was another matter. Piper struggled outside and more practice with less distractions is needed next time.||Focus: Repetition||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Last up was drops. The sheep were being moved in the neighbouring property, with a quad bike and a dog. The trainer took advantage of this and got Piper to practice her drops. Piper did struggle and was clearly uncomfortable in this situation. The trainer created a little more distance and this did help Piper engage more with the trainer. It was a good session for Piper with new experiences away from Bailey.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
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.
