|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his first session today was taken and worked on his loose lead skills. This was to not only progress these skills but help Teddy focus for the rest of the day as well. He was full of energy coming out of accomodation today and the trainer did have to go back to basics for a little bit to refresh teddy’s mind, this is common and not an issue especially for Teddy as he progressed very quickly today once his mind had been refreshed! The trainer was able to take him from the classroom, to outside in a low distraction environment all the way to the car park filled with people and the smelly grass area! Even though he started a bit slow he was quick to pick it up today and the trainer was very happy with his progress.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For his second session today the trainer worked on his impulse control with a focus on starting and stopping play, we call this red light green light! The trainer used place as the controlled position today that Teddy had to go to when asked. He did great with this today! The trainer tried a few things including play with toys, physical touch and crazy sounds, he especially liked chasing the giant ball around today as well trying to fit it in his mouth! He did really well with the skill today, once he knew complying to the command means food reward he was able to break away from almost every very quickly and go to place, the trainer did need to guide him over to the bed a little but this also helps with breaking him out of play mode. He also had dog distractions as another dog was working in the classroom at the same time and Teddy paid no attention to him. Again he smashed this second session and the trainer was very impressed.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building)||Comment: To finish the trainer took Teddy onto the confidence course today. He was able to make it through most of the obstacles today and even went on to the swinging bridge which is what he was hesitant about last time, however this time around he got to the next step which is the corrugated iron flooring, he really didn’t seem to want to step over this, it took most of the session but the trainer was able to make him pass over it at-least once, this is where they ended the session as they wanted to end in a high note and let Teddy feel proud about getting over the objects he was hesitant about!||Focus: Confidence||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.
