|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For Teddys first session today we worked on his loose lead walking outside. We walked pretty much all around the property focusing on building his engagement with the trainer. To start with he was super excitable and struggled to settle down. He was very jumpy and mouthy towards the lead. To help with this he trainer asked for a sit position, kept him there for a bit and then released him. Asking for a skill helps redirect their focus into something productive. If Teddy gets a bit crazy on his walks either ignore the behaviour, stand still and wait for him to calm before continuing or ask for a skill!||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For his second session today Teddy worked on some RLGL place training. Red light green light is simply a game where we play and then ask for a skill. It helps them build impulse control to quickly turn off and then back on. Teddy did pretty well with this, to start with he struggled to stop playing and listen to the trainer but he figured it out fairly quick when the game stopped. Keep working on this one with Teddy and see how you go, he definitely loved the tug toy.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Teddys last session today focused on his drop skill. Teddy was super distracted for this last session and really struggled to focus. Because of this we worked mostly on duration, while in position we would wait for engagement (looking at trainer) before rewarding or releasing him. This seemed to help a little bit with his focus but as soon as he was released he would just do his own thing until we showed him a treat. This could be because he was tired from the session before as RLGL is quite tiring. Despite this he held the drops well and put up with trainer distractions.||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.
