|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: First session Scooter worked on his drops. Today we worked out on the grass around another dog for some extra distractions. Scooter held his drops well and had no interest in the other dog nearby, he only broke early a couple of times, once for some higher energy trainer movement and the other when another trainer came past who he wanted to say hello too.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: Scooters second session we worked on his middles skill. While he can do this skill well, he can be a bit cheeky and need the guidance of a lure to help get him into the motions. When finishing in a sit in the middles position he will hold the position until his release cue. We have started to add some movement while in middles by luring him a few steps then rewarding||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Final session we had some fun with trick training. Scooter worked on his bang skill. While he can sometimes roll all the way over he will happily follow the lure around and lay on his side and hold the duration well. We worked on conditioning the hand signal for this skill but still needs some practise before he’s reliable in it.||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.
