|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her first session, Poppy focused on further developing her skill 'open door' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to challenges Poppy with a harder trick and begin to work on her trick title. Poppy was initially distracted within the classroom (two other trainers working within the classroom), struggling to engage with her trainer. With some guidance, she slowly began to redirect her focus back onto the trainer and begin pulling on the hanky. The hanky is attached to the crate. Once engaged Poppy quickly began to touch then pull on the rope. We suggest continuing to practise this at home on a crate or cupboard door.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her second session, Poppy focused on further developing her skill 'open door' with repetitions working on chaining. We focused on this skill to continue developing Poppy's understanding of this skill. Poppy performed very well, she interacted with the rope straight away, beginning to pull on it (pulling the door open). As she was progressing well, the trainer began to chain her pulling on the rope and then going into the crate. Poppy was initially confused, but quickly after a jackpot (lots of treats), she began to complete multiple successfully repetitions. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home, opening a crate (if have one) or doors.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: In her final session, Poppy focused on conditioning Easter hats for her Easter photo. Poppy initially struggle to allow a hat to be placed on her head. In this session we focused on conditioning poppy to the hat, helping her relax. The trainer began by showing Poppy the hat, marking and rewarding, this was slowly transitioned to placing the hat on her and rewarding. Poppy is still unsure about the hat but was beginning to grow her confidence. We suggest continuing to condition these types of objects at home.||Focus: Conditioning||B|
We recommend your next step should be…

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.
