Archie had a great day today! He is showing good progress with his skills and such a sweet boy!
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."
|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Sit
|Comment: First session Archie worked on his Sit. Todays focus was building his duration around distractions. We started in the classroom and worked around other dogs plus trainer distractions. Archie did quite well in this environment even with other staff members walking by. We moved outside the class for a bit extra distractions and although he broke early a handful of times did well. He is easily redirected back into position by saying uh uh. Keep working on this at home in different environments to strengthen further.
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: For Archie’s second session we worked on his drop skill. This skill will be beneficial to help with manners and greetings. Archie still needs a bit of help getting into the drop with a slight lure. Once in the position he is able to hold the position with low energy trainer movements but can be quick to pop back up. Keep working on his duration and fading out the lure to push the skill further before adding distractions.
|Skill learnt: Recall
|Comment: Final session we worked on Archie’s recall. He shows some understanding of this skill already but was a little distracted in the classroom this session. By the end of the session he was recalling to the trainer in the classroom with other staff nearby as low distractions. When working on a recall we teach to finish in a sit, Archie picked this up well. Keep working on this in familiar environments on lead while slowly building up distractions.
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.
