Aslan had a good day today. He was a little on and off during his sessions, still is happy self but just seemed a bit off, we know this can happen when his dad is deployed so we made sure to end all his sessions with lots of fun and make it a great day for him.
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: Muzzle Conditioning||Comment: First session Aslan worked on his muzzle conditioning. Today we spent a few minutes getting him used to putting his nose in the muzzle before actually clipping it up then moving onto vet holds. Aslan did well in this session allowing his trainer to check his eyes and ears and run their hands down their legs. He wasn’t a fan of having his feet touched but only wiggled them away. We had the muzzle on for most of the session with short breaks of it off and a cuddle before repeating, he also didn’t try to paw the muzzle off at all this session. Great work!||Focus: Conditioning||B|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: Aslans second session we worked on his middles. After being a little cheeky to start and needing to go right back to basics to encourage him to go between the trainers legs he began to follow the verbal with only a slight lure to help guide him. We focused on his duration in the position as he can be quick to wiggle out of the position before his release word. He is picking this up well. Keep working on this at home and begin fading out the lure to just a hand signal when he is showing more reliability.||Focus: Duration||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For Aslans final session we worked on his skateboard. Today Aslan was a bit reluctant to do anything but stand on the skateboard, even with luring he wasn’t interested in trying to push himself along and if it moved slightly he was quick to jump off. To end the session on a positive we went out and checked out our confidence course for the last couple of minutes where Aslan happily jumped over the a frame but was more interested in sniffing around the gate to get to his trainer than go through the other obstacles||Focus: Back to Basics||C+|
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.
