|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: First session Ruby worked on her place skill. Today we worked outside for higher distraction levels and used a smaller bed to test her with this skill. After first she wasn’t sure of the smaller bed but with the help of some treats we were able to lure her on. She held her duration well around low energy trainer movement and other dogs being trained nearby. Keep working on this at home adding distractions to push further.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Rubys second session we focused on her drop skill. Today we worked on fading out the hand signal and using the verbal cue only. Ruby started to respond well to the verbal only and only need a hand signal a couple of times to guide her into position. From there we added some play and then asked for a drop to help push her obedience so the skill can be used in real life scenarios to redirect unwanted behaviour. This was a bit more of a challenge for Ruby and will need more work at home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: Final session Ruby worked on her paws up. Today we worked on fading out the lure and introducing the verbal cue. She is picking this up well and can still be hesitant when we introduce new objects but is something to continue with at home to further the skill and build confidence. She is able to hold duration in the skill now and wait for her release word.||Focus: Duration||B|
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.
