|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his first session we worked on loose lead outside with drops and spins. Sonny's loose lead is quite good and he gives decent engagement throughout most of the walk. Initially with his drops he did need a hand signal to focus enough to go into them but after a few repetitions he was dropping with just the verbal cue which is great! His spins were also fantastic while walking and helped build his engagement. He did get a bit distracted when people walked by so helping to push this skill around people would be a great next step for him.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Desensitisation||Comment: For his second session we took Sonny into the cattery to work on his loose lead and drops around cats. He did well around the cats - while he would get quite focused on them he would still take treats from the trainer and maintained his drop when asked. He did struggle a little when a cat was moving around it's pen but a few gentle "uh-uh's" and he remained in drop. Keep working on the cat desensitisation where possible and utilising his obedience skills around them.||Focus: Desensitisation||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his last session we worked on emergency drops around distractions (food and toys). Sonny did really well with this - he only struggled a few times when he couldn't see a clear spot to drop on right away amongst the toys. Besides that he did an awesome job and was able to drop while ignoring the temptations. Awesome job from Sonny today!||Focus: Distraction||A|

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.
