|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: This week the doggies attended their first art class with the trainers. This involved a session full of enrichment and fun, stimulating the dogs mentally as well as using the opportunity to condition the environment and make something beautiful to take home. The paint is still quite wet so don't forget to collect next time.||Focus: Confidence||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: The trainer started Wally’s second session with loose lead walking. He started pulling when the trainer went outside the classroom but soon settled nicely and his engagement was fantastic. As the trainer walked up the driveway Wally encountered a dog running and barking at the fence next to him. Twice he went to run towards the dog but a quick nahha he stopped straight away! When the trainer walked Wally near the kennel’s he was great. He looked but didn’t attempt to engage and was quick to look at the trainer when the yes marker was used. Wally’s engagement with the trainer is great and something to continue to encourage at home when walking. As soon as Wally looks at you – yes and reward.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Wally’s last session the trainer concentrated on drops with distractions. Wally’s drops were great in the class room with a barking dog, so the trainer took Wally outside. However Wally struggled with this and wouldn’t drop at all. The trainer took Wally back in the classroom and continued in the classroom again for a while. Again Wally’s drops were fantastic. Towards the end of the session the trainer took Wally outside. This time Wally did really well. This is something that you can certainly work on at home, building up Wally’s distraction levels slowly. Next time the trainer would like to get Wally outside sooner in the session and increasing the distractions and duration of the drops. Apologies for the lateness of the report. We had a connection issue and didn't realise that the report didn't submit.||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.
