|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Middle Position
|Comment: First session Aslan worked on his middles skill. He was sooo excited to be back at training to took a couple of minutes of engagement games to help get his focus before starting the skill. Today we went back to basics using treats to help lure Aslan into the middle position. He is more confident coming into position from behind the trainer rather than in front of the trainer. He shows little word association when asked to go to middles but this could be due to his excitement levels. By going back to basics it helps strengthen then foundation of the skill before re introducing the verbal cue. Keep this up at home, adding the verbal cue in once he is showing a stronger reliability and then begin working on duration.
|Focus: Back to Basics
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: Aslans second session we worked on his send to place. Today we worked in the classroom using dogs in crates as our distraction and used a long line to increase the distance he was sent to place from. Aslan started distracted so we firstly worked on short, quick repetitions then gradually increased the distance. By the end of the session we were able to send him to place from across the classroom, he does like to take his own time going there so keep working on his speed to the bed at home.
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: For Aslans final session we worked on an obedience/trick circuit to help sharpen his skills up and strengthen the verbal cues. This session we worked through sit, drop and spin. Aslan did well going into his sits and drops, he did struggle a bit to go back into a sit from a drop position. He loves his spin and is getting super fast! He was quick to break his drop skill but was easily redirected back into position with a verbal uh uh.
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.
