Was great to see Arnie back today! Focusing on distractions and duration for Mr Arnie today if you focus on these basic skills at home he will be the perfect boy!! Remember he is only young and a typical husky he will try and push you around, be Ferm! Also he nibbled my arm once today and that was it, I wasn’t fussed with it because it wasn’t bad. He could be doing this out of attention or boredom, basically to help this is to give him a job today so working on these skills at home.
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: Place Training||Comment: In Arnie’s first session we trained place duration. I think place skill is going to be your best friend place is a great skill for self settling. Practicing this skill we would say place once he’s on say ‘yes’ and reward with treats, to keep his duration it will just be yes and reward a few times then releasing him kinda before you think he will get off his self. He didn’t do to bad at this skill but he’s only young so will take some practice.||Focus: Duration||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Arnie’s second session we trained drops, we had two other dogs in the classroom training which was a good distraction for him. He knows the word drop he just doesn’t have and duration in the drop, so today we were doing little repetitions. Practicing duration, is basically putting him in a drop and say ‘yes’ and reward keep doing rewarding for a few seconds then when releasing him say ‘break’ and he should pop up. Practice this inside first where less distractions are, then when he’s good at that move outside.||Focus: Duration||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Arnie’s last session we trained Loose lead walking in the classroom. I wanted to do this skill inside to see how he would do first and also we had another dog in training as well which thought would be good distraction for him. He did really well he would look at the other dog but that was it, no pulling on the lead either which was awesome. Next session I would like to try this outside. Practice this at home if he’s to distracted outside practice it inside, remember he’s only young.||Focus: Distraction||A|
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.
