|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Robbie was very brave during his loose lead walk with the new trainer. A familiar trainer was nearby and once warmed up he performed beautifully. Once he was settled a dog distractions was introduced and the use of the skill 'drop' was used to help him settle further. This was also performed near 2 workers that were building an aviary nearby. Well done buddy!||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Desensitisation||Comment: Today the trainers made use of some working building an aviary outside the kennels! The men were wearing high vis shirts and hard hats, making lots of noise with a variety of tools and the trainer approached, got the dogs to perform tricks, drops, loose lead and place. This has further developed their skills, confidence and engagement with unfamiliar distractions. Robbie was very nervous during this session so the trainer had him in place or drop and sat with him encouraging him to relax with pats. After a while he started taking treats and relaxed!||Focus: Confidence||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: The session was ended with a fun skill being rollover. Robbie still struggles with this but once he was settled and comfortable he performed a few rolls. There were a lot of dog distractions within the classroom so the trainer was proud of his effort despite the distractions.||Focus: Back to Basics||C+|

D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
