|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For Wesley’s first session we worked on his bow skill. This is a good skill for Wesley as it pushes his thinking. To begin with he struggled and kept going into his drop. To reduce this we ensured we marked ‘yes’ as soon as his elbows went down and if his bum followed we then used ‘nope’. Towards the end Wesley started to do really well and did multiple repetitions without dropping his bum. The next step for Wesley will be to start fading out the lure as he started to struggle when the trainer didn’t use food.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Spin||Comment: Wesley’s second session we worked on his twirl skill. This is a good skill for him as it again pushes his thinking. Wesley struggled abit more today and was only turning half way and the would turn back the other way. We used a lure to help him and then started to fade this out. Towards the end of the session we was doing really well however again struggled to remain focused without a lure. The next step will be to continue working on his twirl fading out the lure.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: For Wesley’s last session we worked on his middles skill. This is a good skill for Wesley as it allows you to put him in a controlled position around distractions. We worked on getting him to go into middles from in-front which he started to pick up towards the end. We needed a lure as Wesley would often go in between the trainers legs but face the wrong way. To stop this confusion we lured him around our legs and in between. He started to do really well and we worked on fading out the lure. Towards the end we were only using our hand to signal around our legs and he was doing really well. The next step for Wesley will be to continue working on fading out the lure.||Focus: Repetition||B|
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.
