|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In Teds first session we trained place, before we trained this skill we want to make sure his reward marker is charged, with a well charged marker makes training a lot easier, this is just by saying ‘yes’ then giving him a treat. this skill is a self soothing skill which helps them relax in different environments. Because he’s only new to these skills it’s just a simple lure on to the bed which is place and when releasing him we say break and lure him off the object||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Crate Training||Comment: In his second session we trained crate conditioning, we put our dogs in crates in between session. To condition this we make it as positive as possible so chucking treats in toys ect. Once there in the crate and get used to it they settle and most of our dogs like the crate because it’s a safe place for them. Create skill for dogs to learn when having people over and you either don’t want him to get excited and jump up on people put him in the crate, with some food, feed him in there have his favourite toys and he will eventually go in the crate by his self.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In Teds last session we trained drops. He took awhile to go into the drop but eventually found that he was able to drop from a sit position. Normally when we teach drop we just do it from standing but eventually when he understands drop well enough he will soon drop from a standing position. Drops will help with his jumping as it is a controlled position, eventually when he knows it better you will be able to put him in a drop, put your foot on the lead close to him so if he goes to get up, he can’t get very far then he will correct his self. We will keep practicing his drops and his duration in the skill.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
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.
