|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: First session Teddy worked on picking up and ball and dropping it into a bucket. This skill can be shaped into various tricks (basketball slam dunk or putting his toys away). Teddy is still in the early stages where he mouths/picks up the ball. To help him target to the bucket we dropped his treat reward into the bucket. He happily will pick up the ball and drop it near the trainer but still needs some practise to progress further.||Focus: Foundation||C|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his second session Teddy worked on his loose lead. Today we worked out in the carpark for higher distractions as we had maintenance staff moving around the facility so lots of noise and movement. Teddy did quite well with his loose lead, initially was a bit bouncy but after a few drop repetitions started to focus. He showed some great engagement and followed direction change well. Keep pushing his loose lead and building engagement in higher distractions.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: Teddys final session we worked on his recall. We started on the pavement just outside the classroom and used a long line. After multiple successful recalls in this environment we moved over to the grass area. A few kennel staff members were nearby so we used them as our distractions, they gave Teddy lots of cuddles and attention and this is where his trainer recalled him away from them. At first he needed some treat lures to help come away from the cuddles but quickly started coming back to his trainer with some speed. Keep pushing this skill with higher distractions at home.||Focus: Distraction||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.
