|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Squid’s first session was loose lead walking outside. He was pulling initially but as the trainer kept changing direction and giving in to the direction Squid wanted to pull towards, he did start to do better. Squid was still keen to smell everything but was generally sniffing as he walked. At times he did pull towards some good smells but the trainer walked in the other direction and Squid settled for sniffing while walking!||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Squid’s second session was place. This was done with a dog in close proximity and Squid did struggle. He was very vocal and a number of times he broke place to pull towards the other dog. The trainer couldn’t move to far away from Squid or he would step off. At home reduce the distractions a little when practicing at home so that he can have success and it won’t take long before he is back to holding place better again.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Last up for Squid was drops outside which he did a great job. At first he was breaking as soon as the trainer mover around him but as the session progressed so did Squid! Even with dogs in the kennel yards he held his position. It will be great to build on this so the trainer is able to move more around Squid.||Focus: Distraction||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.
E: Unable to Progress. Needs major focus, seek further options to assist.
X: Not gradable, the focus was on Enrichment, Socialisation & Engagement.
