Great to see Alfie again, always such a joy to train this man and always makes us laugh with his goofy personality!
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!
"I trained hard, I played hard! Please find below the skills we worked on and my results. I look forward to showing you what I learnt and working on them more with you!" If you have any questions about the skills we trained please feel free to contact todays trainer."
|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: First session we worked on Alfie’s loose lead outside. Today we were working on holding back that reward a little longer, we still need to reward our dogs for doing what we ask as they will start to think I’m not going to do it if I don’t get a reward. Basically like us we don’t want to work for free, but we can definitely reward less frequently as he starts to understand the skills really well.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Secondly we worked on his drop skill with distance inside. He did really well with his skill today we were able to walk around him while he stayed in his drop, we were also working on our release word which is ‘break’.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: Last session we worked on paws up. Paws up is a fun skill for a dog to put their two front paws up on an object, he did well with this skills but did struggle a little bit with the smaller object.||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.
