|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his first session today the trainer worked on his loose lead walking. Since he has been doing amazing with this the trainer wanted to test Teddy and maybe start some new criteria with Teddys loose lead. Today the trainer tried to teach Teddy the “left foot right foot rules”. This is teach Teddy that when he is in a sit next to the trainer on a walk if they start to move off with their right leg he must still remain in his sit until released, but if the trainer stepped off with their left leg Teddy needed to follow them and could get out of his sit. It took him no time at all to pick this up today, while not fully understanding just yet he really showed how quickly he can learn new things today and was easily following the criteria by the end of the session.||Focus: Obedience||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For his second session the trainer worked on his “put toys away” skill. They are not sure where abouts he is at home with this skill so the trainer started from scratch with him to give him a good foundation for this skill. Before Teddy is able to put toys away he first must show he can carry the toys and pick them up. To help with this today the trainer put some toys in a bucket but instead of getting Teddy to put them in the bucket they just had him taking them out of the bucket today. This not only helps teach him to pick stuff up it’s also getting him use to the bucket and associating the toys with the bucket. He did well with this today but will still need some more work on his foundations, the trainer noticed that he was more enticed to grab the toy out of the box when it was a fluffy toy and not a ball or a rope toy.||Focus: Foundation||C|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: (RLGL) Due to the hot weather the trainer wanted to do this last as to not wipe him out for the rest of the day. They also worked inside the classroom to keep Teddy as cool as possible while doing such a physical exercise. He did well with this, his “out” is getting much quicker and it’s obvious he is choosing the command over playing with the toy! Since it was so hot he only had about 10 minutes in him before he was pooped so the trainer finished his session with some loose lead walking around the groundsmen as he was cutting down a tree with a chainsaw and it was a prime opportunity for some exposure.||Focus: Repetition||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.
