|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: First session Timmy worked on his place skill. He is showing good progress with this and will happily settle on place while the trainer moves around the bed. Today we were able to have him tethered while the trainer walked around the classroom, knocked on doors and bounced balls. He did break a handful of times but was easily redirected back to the bed by saying uh uh. Keep working on this at home. Good job!||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Timmy’s second session we worked on his drop skill. Timmy is slowly getting the hang of this, he still needs a lure to help get into position and we used the under the leg method for guidance but was able to drop a handful of times without the leg there with us just luring in a downwards and slightly away from him motion. Keep working on this to build a stronger foundation.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Final session we worked on Timmy’s loose lead. We started just outside the classroom for less distractions. In this environment timmy walked well by the trainers side, he occasionally tried to cut in front and when he did this we stepped in front of him to block the path, after doing this a couple of times Timmy worked out that he needed to stay on the left side of the trainer. We finished up inside the kennels for a bit more distractions (dogs, new smells) Timmy still continued to walk by the trainers side but does struggle with his engagement which means he can get distracted quite easily in new environments but is showing good progress. Keep working on his leash skills at home in familiar environments like the front yard to strengthen further.||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.
