|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: Wilfred’s first session today was focused on helping him build trust with the trainer. He was a bit shy in the kennels so the trainer took it slow and just sat with him for a while. He eventually warmed up to them, he wasn’t taking any treats but was happy for the trainer to put the lead on and leave the kennels. We did much the same as what we did with Archie, let him have an explore and sniff around the property until we made it to the classroom. Wilfred wasn’t as confident as Archie so we took it really slow in the classroom. We let him explore around the cattery until it was time to have a rest. Wilfred still wasn’t taking any treats but that’s ok, we can work around that.||Focus: Conditioning||X|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: Wilfred’s second session was focused on charging his reward marker. Much like Archie’s sessions we say “yes” and give him a treat. Wilfred was only taking treats every now and then so we focused on just letting him go out and sniff something (on lead) and then come back to the trainer for a treat. This teaches them that if they engage with the trainer good things happen, like treats or cuddles. While Wilfred isn’t taking treats 100% of the time he is still showing some interest and ability to settle in the classroom.||Focus: Conditioning||X|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: Wilfred’s last session was much the same as his second. We worked on getting his focus on the trainer, he did start to take more treats by the end of the session. Wilfred isn’t as confident as Archie but he showed some progress throughout his sessions. It’s really important to expose them to these environments with other dogs and unfamiliar places. Although they don’t get to physically interact with other dogs, being in the same room while training and remaining calm is great experience for them! Keep up the work with these two and they’ll really accelerate in their training!||Focus: Conditioning||X|

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.
