Zazu is very good with her place skill now but does still struggle with her loose lead and drop skills when distracted.
It was a PLEASURE training with your pooch today and we look forward to continuing to help you achieve your goals, skills and improve your relationship.
Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For her first session we worked on place in the classroom with distractions. Initially she broke quite easily but as the session progressed she was able to hold her place while the trainer did high energy and sudden movements for most of the time. She is getting a great understanding of the skill and continuing to push her distraction levels will help build a solid foundation.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For her second session we did loose lead in the cattery. Zazu was very distracted in there, particularly with the birds in the aviary. She struggled to listen to obedience skills when close to them so we moved onto loose lead in general. She was distracted in the area and took about 5 minutes to start engaging with the trainer. As the session progressed her focus improved and she was walking much better by the end.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For her last session we worked on drop duration. This can still be a struggle for Zazu but she improved her duration as the session progressed. She did roll over a few times and was biting at the lead but otherwise kept good focus while in her drop.||Focus: Duration||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.
