Aslan did try and push the boundaries a bit in the new environment but settled really well into his training sessions. At home continue building on his obedience skills by increasing duration and adding distractions.
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: For his first session we worked on loose lead in the classroom. Aslan was very cheeky on the way to the classroom from the kennels - he was jumping around and pulling on the lead. For the first 5 minutes in the classroom he was quite unfocused in the new environment and struggled to engage with the trainer. After looking around a bit he did start to settle and became engaged with the trainer. He did good loose lead in the classroom with another dog in a nearby crate so we moved him to working outside for the higher distraction. He did struggle outside and would often be moving ahead of the trainer at the end of the lead so this skill does need more practice to move to higher distractions.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For his second session we worked on place. Aslan shows a very good understanding of place and definitely knows when he is being cheeky and putting a foot off the bed. We tested him with sounds, door knocking and toys which he all did really well with. For the last few minutes we tested him with food - he did struggle a little with this but listened well to his "uh-uh" marker. Overall he did a great job with this skill and has a great foundation to build upon. Keep pushing his distraction levels at home to continue proofing this skill.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his last session we worked on drops in the classroom. Aslan was a bit distracted by other dogs but would go into drop with a lure. He did struggle to hold his drop so we worked on duration while he was distracted by other dogs. He did improve over the session and became more focused throughout. At home work on building his duration and adding distractions such as moving away or around him.||Focus: Duration||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.
