|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Due to Rolo's excitement to begin training he presented some jumping and pulling behaviour. The trainer started the session from the kennels and got him into the drop position to help him settle. He responded very well to this but struggled with distance from the trainer. As they headed toward the classroom they also worked on door manners to reduce him from barging through doors and they also encountered some other dogs in training outside. He did not react at all, at random the trainer would put him in a drop and he responded to this instantly. the only time he was reactive was in the classroom when a dog in a crate spooked him. The trainer got him in a drop straight away and he settled and after a few minutes. Throughout the day he was exposed to the dog that was in the crate and was not reactive at all. Well done buddy! From the trainers understanding he was just bamboozled.||Focus: Distance||B|
|Skill learnt: Spin||Comment: To further work on Rolo's spins the trainer utilised the distracting classroom (5 dogs either in crate, on place or in training and 3 trainers). Initially he was VERY distracted but after a few repetitions the trainer had his full engagement. He was still relying on the lure but the trainer focused on fading this.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: The trainer decided to do something fun for his last session so they worked on conditioning paws up on moving objects (skateboard). When Rolo has a 'job' to do he is so focused and responds really well towards the distractions around him. He LOVED this skill!! Another skill that would be a good safety skill would be peekaboo (also called middles).||Focus: Confidence||A+|
|Skill learnt: Crate Training||Comment: Between sessions Rolo was relaxing in crate or on place. Amazing work with his training!!||Focus: Duration||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.
