|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his first session we worked on loose lead outside with Teddy. With using a higher value treat (fritz) we were able to get a bit more focus from Teddy but he does still struggle with engagement throughout the walk. He responds well to his name but doesn't respond highly to the "yes" marker - spend some time each day charging this marker (saying yes and rewarding) so that he is more responsive in training. We also practiced a few sits and drops while walking as this can help keep focus on the trainer which he did OK with.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Spin||Comment: For his second session we worked on something new and fun for Teddy - his spin skill! This is a great skill for recalls and can also be used for engagement during walking. Teddy was very good at following the lure and even though he dropped once or twice halfway through the spin he picked up the skill quite well. Continue working on luring with this skill at this stage and we can look at speeding it up and fading the lure in future sessions.||Focus: Foundation||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his last session we worked on drops with Teddy. Teddy was quite distracted by a few other dogs in the room and needed encouragement to go properly into a drop each time (he would sometimes sit and needed a lure or low hand signal to complete into drop). Once in drop he was good but we spent the session working on going into and out of drop as this is where he struggles with the skill.||Focus: Repetition||C|
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.
