|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: We brought Zimba into the classroom to work on his loose lead while Zoltan was next to him. We put Zoltan on place and walked Zimba next to him, making sure both were following the skills boundaries. Zimba stayed next to his trainer, losing his focus as we started the lesson but with some repetition we managed to get him to fully engage with his trainer.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: We worked on Zimba’s grab skill in the classroom. Zimba started the lesson well, grabbing the toy when asked. We started working on duration when Zimba decided he had enough of the skill and completely lost engagement. After a bit of time trying to get his engagement back he started grabbing the toy on and off.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: Zimba finished the day off with his recalls. Zimba made his way down to the training yard to practice, focusing on loose lead on his way down. Zimba was low engagement this lesson aswell, choosing to only come back a few times and when he did he didn't want to go into a sit. As its been a big week for him we weren't too strict on him this lesson, making sure he came back but giving him some time and space.||Focus: Distance||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.
