|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his first session we continued working on Remi's loose lead skill. We started off in the cattery but after a few laps with no issues we went outside to walk on the grassy area. Remi is fantastic at his loose lead - he walks really nicely, responds well to changes in direction and has great focus on the trainer. We practice a few inside turns and emergency drops as he was doing so well. After the first inside turn where he shot past the turn he did awesomely the next few times and turned inwards with the trainer with no issues. He does struggle a bit with his emergency drops though - he often goes into a sit only or won't stop if the trainer keeps walking so this is an area to work on. At home keep up the great work on his walks and throw a few random drops in while walking to keep him engaged.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: As Remi had struggled with his drops in the previous session we worked on drops for his second session. The focus was on emergency drops and repetition so that he would go fully into a drop when asked. Remi did much better with his drops this session though he did break easily a few times when the trainer walked a few steps ahead while he was in drop. He did improve with this over the session and started staying in drop until released. Next time we'd like to push his emergency drops a bit further as it is a great safety skill to have. At home practice asking him for drops randomly and work on his duration in drops when moving around.||Focus: Repetition||B+|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: For his last session we worked on paws up for something fun that can help build Remi's confidence. Remi did really well with this skill, he wasn't wary of the balance ball and happily followed lures onto. We started pairing the truck with the verbal cue of "paws up" as he was doing so well. Next time we'd like to phase out the lure and continue using the verbal cue to help strengthen his skill. At home lure him onto objects with the cue to continue building this skill.||Focus: Repetition||A|
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.
