Baloo was a superstar today, although a bit distracted he performed his skills!
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: Drop/ Down
|Comment: We practiced quick repetitions, while moving along and while standing still. He did really well only missing the cue a couple times when he found an interesting smell. He showed good engagement, he could definitely do with some practice with his emergency drops while walking at faster pace!
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: This session focused on his place skill between two spots. We utilised a bed and a tree stump, sending him between the two quickly. We didn’t release him each time, simply pointed and said “place” when we wanted him to change spots. He did really well, he did get a little frustrated when we made him do a few repetitions before rewarding him but he seemed to also enjoy the challenge.
|Skill learnt: Middle Position
|Comment: This last session was all about his middles skill. He was quite distracted and struggled a bit with this today. We went back to basics, luring him into position to remind him. He did improve throughout the session however was quite rusty. Might be something to revisit with his training at home, since it is such a good skill to have!
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.
