|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: The first session was focused on further developing Robbie’s skill ‘loose lead’ within and around the kennel facility. Practising loose lead in a high distracting environment helps proof Robbie’s skills as well as helping to build his engagement. Robbie performed amazingly! He remained engaged and in the correct position, despite walking through the kennels (can hear twenty plus dogs). To help Robbie remain engaged the trainer used ‘down’ to keep his brain working and busy. Next time the trainer would like to increase the distractions to where Robbie can see the other dogs. Continuing to practise his loose lead at home in both low and medium distracting environments will help him continue to progress.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: The second session was focused on further developing Robbie’s skill ‘place’ on different objects while in the classroom. Continuing to challenge Robbie with place on different objects helps him further understand the boundaries. Robbie successfully placed on a towel, small cat bed and suitcase. He initially struggled to identify which object the trainer was pointing at for place. However, with some guidance he quickly began to identify and place on the correct object. Robbie quickly began to remain on each object until released with ‘break’. This would be a fun exercise to complete at home using a range of different and fun objects around your home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Ring a Bell||Comment: This session was focused on introducing Robbie to the new skill ‘bell’ within the classroom environment. Teaching ‘bell’ is a great skill to help build engagement as well as lots of fun to train with your doggo. Robbie interacted with the bell straight away, he quickly began touching it with his nose. As the session progressed Robbie slowly began to touch the bell with his paw, he was jackpotted for this behaviour (multiple treats were given). Robbie successfully pawed the bell seven times throughout this session. This would be a fun skill to continue practising at home.||Focus: Back to Basics||C-|
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.
