Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Pyro came down to the classroom to work on his place skill. Pyro's engagement was all over the place as we started, focusing on all the smells and other dogs in the room. We practiced leading him up onto the bed and releasing him, just focusing on strengthening his knowledge of his yes and break markers. Pyro found this challenging as he just want to go interact with everything else around the room. After some repetition he started to settle in to the evironment a bit as he started to pay attention to his trainer.||Focus: Foundation||C|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: We continued with some loose lead walking, focusing on his keeping his engagement throughout the lesson. Pyro started this lesson pulling in every direction. We continued the same method as his last loose lead lesson. As Pyro caught the eye of another dog, he would try run over in their direction. At this point we'd turn and walk in the other direction. After a bit of repetition of this, Pyro started to focus on his trainer a lot more often, walking by his side for longer each time. By the end of the lesson, Pyro was still trying to pull every now and then, although would recover quicker and start walking by his trainer's side again, also starting to pay more attention on turns.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: Pyro finished off with his recall skill in the classroom. We let him get distracted before running backwards and saying "come". Once Pyro made his way back to us we lure him into a sit with a treat before releasing him and paying him. Pyro found it challenging to focus on his trainer, making his way back consistently although once he got back immediately wondering off to explore instead of going into his sit. We used the tug toy he loves to play a game, calling him back once distracted and getting him into his sit and then rewarding him by playing a game of tug. this worked to get his engagement, with Pyro being excited to play with the toy, running back quickly when we called him.||Focus: Foundation||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.
