|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Scoot-pa-toot started his day practicing his ‘drop’ skill, focusing on increasing the distance between him and the trainer once in position as he has the habit of breaking once they walk about 3-4 metres away. Scooter did well! He broke a couple times, but with the use of his “ah ah” gesture, he would plop back down straight away and try again. Keep up the amazing work at home and continue to build his duration in his drop, even while you walk away. Awesome work, Scoot!||Focus: Distance||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Next up, Scooter continued to work on his ‘spin’ skill. He still has quite the habit of sitting half way through the spin, the lure confusing him a little. The trainer began to start Scooter moving, rather than stationary, before luring into the spin, which helped a bit! Keep having a go at this at home! Half way through the session, the trainer switched to teaching Scooter his ‘roll over’ trick, which he had lots more success in! This began by having Scooter in a drop position, then luring his head towards his shoulder (which makes Scoot lay on his side), then continuing to lure the treat over until he pops back up into a drop again on his other side. He did amazing with this! Keep practicing it at home!||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: To finish the day, Scooter continued to work on his ‘hold’ trick, focusing on the duration of holding the ring, which can progress into his ‘quoits’ trick. Scooter started off strong and held the ring for several seconds, but as the session went on he began to lose interest (could just be tired as it was nearing his last session for the day). Keep pushing this skill at home with him, you can use other objects too like a wooden spoon, hose piece, etc. Let us know how you go. Great stuff today, Scoot!||Focus: Duration||B|

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.
