|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For Zac's first session, we focused on 'loose lead' walking outside, with his sister Tessa. Zac had wonderful engagement throughout the entirety of this session, which is awesome! Engagement is crucial for your dog to have, especially out in the world as you want them to think you are the most interesting thing, that way if you are faced with any tricky situation, they will be focused solely on you and it makes them, and everything around them that much safer. Keep up the great work!||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Next, Zac practiced his 'place' skill, being sent to and from. Zac again performed really well, but when we tried to increase the distance, he did start to struggle. If we were too far, he would get a bit confused and instead do a drop, but he would quickly realise what he did wrong once the trainer walked a little closer to the bed. In the future, we would like if Zac could perform this skill for greater distances as he has the distractions down pat. Awesome work.||Focus: Distance||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: To finish up, Zac did some more place training, but this time we focused on duration as he was a little tired after the other sessions. Zac did really well to not let the distractions in the classroom tempt him to break his place, the only time he attempted to was when another Husky entered the room, but all he needed was an "ah ah" to remind him he is performing a skill and is not allowed to break until released. The next step for Zac would be to increase the distraction levels and make sure he can still resist the temptation of leaving his place.||Focus: Distraction||B|
We recommend your next step should be…

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.
