|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: Wesley’s day began with his ‘recall’ skill outside on a long line with a dog distraction. Wesley was a bit cray-cray this morning and found tonnes of sticks/leaves he wanted to munch on, but he still listened to everything the trainer asked for, which is great! The other dog did not strain his engagement at all and he came beautifully each time he was called!! There was the odd time he would break and come to the trainer before asked, but with his non-reward marker “ah ah” the trainer would reposition him and try again, to which he would do it properly. Keep up with the distractions at home, sticks and leaves were definitely his kryptonite today!||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Next up, Wesley worked on his “bye-bye” trick. Wesley is such a smart boy and was able to raise his paw when the trainer gave the bye-bye hand motion, which is fantastic! The next step for Wesley would be to get him to mimic our actions and raise his paw twice basically, giving us a wave motion. A way to achieve this is to lay off the ‘yes’ reward and see if he will try waving the same paw again. Keep up practicing this at home, he is doing so well!!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: To finish off, Wesley practiced his ‘roll over’ skill, focusing on fading the lure. Wesley did so well!! At first he still needed a treat lure, but by the end of the session the trainer was able to get him to roll over just with the hand signal and verbal cue, which is AMAZING!!!! The trainer would jackpot reward him when he performed the trick with only the hand signal and verbal cue, to let him know he is doing exactly what we are asking for. Keep working on this at home, he will be a pro in no time!!||Focus: Repetition||A|
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.
