|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For Wallys first session we worked on his place skill - specifically duration and impulse control as requested by his mum. To begin we did send off and too place, increasing distance from where he was sent to place. 5 minutes in we changed to impulse control - holding place with other dogs and toys within the classroom. Wally did great with this and only broke place once for a toy. Such a big improvement - I would like to see this continued to be worked on at home. This can be achieved by training place in parts of his home he finds exciting and stimulating to encourage a more difficult environment and really solidify this skill. Overall, amazing job!||Focus: Duration||A|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Wallys second session we worked on his drop skill. This session was by far his best, I am amazed by how much he has improved with his drops. Even performing them without a lure! His homework is very clearly paying off. Wally was able to complete the skill with distractions (other dogs and toys) and only failed to drop twice during the entire session. At home you can begin to work on implied duration and also start to remove hand signals. I believe he has a clear understanding of the drop command now and can start advancing to the next level. Well done Wally!||Focus: Repetition||A+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For Wallys final session we worked on his loose leash skill. Wally was great in the classroom - very engaged and motivated even with a classroom of dogs on passive place. We completed Wallys session outside in the training paddock. Wally struggle to maintain focus outdoors - although didn't really strain on the leash. I would like to see his engagement improve outdoors. You can achieve this by loading his markers in the backyard and front yard where there is a higher level of stimulation||Focus: Conditioning||C|

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.
