|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For her first session we worked on Tessa's loose lead outside in the carpark. It took her a minute or two to settle down and start listening to the trainer but she showed better engagement as the session progressed. She did pull a little ahead but after turning around each time she started doing much better. When Zac joined her outside she was distracted for a bit but settled much quicker than normal and refocused easier which is a great improvement.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For her second session we worked on drops outside with Zac. Drop is a strong skill with Tessa so she did quite well though she did get a little distracted by Zac once or twice and had to have the foot brake applied to go into drop. We were able to get them to drop quite close to each other and having Tessa move away from Zac as soon as she was released with barely any pressure. Again this is good improvement and shows the good work you both have put into Tessa and Zac.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For her last session we worked on place with Zac. Tessa did struggle a bit with this skill, she had trouble focusing on the trainer when she was nearby Zac which made it difficult to send her to place. Once on place she did quite well though food is a big distraction for her (she would break to get kibble on the floor near the bed). Keep working on low level distractions for her to build up her impulse control when practising this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||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.
