|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Sammy started his day practicing his ‘loose lead’ walking inside the classroom with dog distractions, as well as walking in between a makeshift aisle of plates of treats and toys. He did really well! Sammy ignored the temptations and had good focus on the trainer. As you want Sammy to walk down the aisle soon, keep practicing this and make him walk between lots of distracting items/food he may want to stop and get. Have a higher value reward during these training sessions. We will keep building him with this and incorporate higher distractions (lots of people/dogs) in higher distracting environments (outside/grass). Awesome work!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Next up, Sampson revisited his ‘skateboard’ trick, focusing on duration. He did really well! Sammy was able to remain on the board while the trainer pushed him along, which is good! There were the odd couple times he would hop off half way, but with the use of his non-reward marker “ah ah”, the trainer would reposition him and try again. Keep up the awesome work and if you do not have a board at home, practice his duration still by asking him to do paws up on an object, reward him while he is on it and release him, repeat. Good work, Sampson!||Focus: Duration||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: To finish up, Sammy worked on his ‘drop’ skill through red light green light. He did amazing, as per usual with this. He has great engagement with the trainer and always dropped when told. It is important we keep the strength with this skill, especially if he needs to perform a drop in emergency situations, no matter how razzed up he is. Keep pushing him with this at home! Lovely work today Sampson, you smashed it!||Focus: Distraction||A|
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.
