Senka did very well today - our main focus was to work on pushing her middles skill which she did improve with as well as working on some muzzle conditioning. Awesome job from Senka!
It was a PLEASURE training with your pooch today and we look forward to continuing to help you achieve your goals, skills and improve your relationship.
Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: For her first session we went over Senka's middles skill. The focus of today was to work on angles facing her (ie. More than 90 degrees from her). She struggled a bit with this and would often go into middles facing backwards if the trainer was slightly facing her. Encouraging her to turn around and face the correct way will help with this. She started getting a bit better at the end and would start to turn herself around a few times but this does need more practice.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: We continued on with her middles skill during her second session. We worked a bit with luring her into the correct position from the trainer facing her so that she could understand what was required a bit better. She did better with it this session - managing to go around or turn herself around the correct way about 50% of the time. She shows good understanding and you can see her continuing to try and figure it out when she doesn't hear her "yes" marker. Keep up the work at home and she should get good at it with practice.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning||Comment: As part of our muzzle appreciation week we spent a bit of time conditioning Senka to a muzzle. Even for dogs that don't have aggression or reactivity issues a muzzle can be a very handy item to help dogs not eat unwanted stuff while walking or making people less likely to approach your dog. Senka did really well with the muzzle - besides trying to chew on it a few times she let us put the muzzle on and do it up with no issues. She did spend some time while walking trying to get it off but still did so well with it. Well done Senka!||Focus: Conditioning||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.
