Banjo did really well with his Dayschool today! He gained confidence quickly and we were able to work on his skills around dogs. He would be suitable for our Basic Obedience class whenever you would like to join it.
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: Conditioning
|Comment: For his first session we did some art work in the classroom for art week and to help Banjo settle down in the environment and around other dogs. Banjo did really well, while initially a little nervous he had no reactivity towards the other dogs and we were able to use fritz and the "search" skill to condition him around dogs and relax in the environment. Well done Banjo!
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: For his second session we worked on Banjo's loose lead skill. Banjo does pull and walk where he wants quite a bit on the lead so we went back to basics in the classroom and encouraged him to focus on the trainer. He still needs work on this skill so keep up with it at home. We also did a few minutes outside around another dog which he had no issue with (other dog was holding a controlled position).
|Focus: Back to Basics
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: For his last session we worked on the place skill. Banjo easily went onto it and showed good recognition of his release word (free). We worked on building duration and then, as he picked up duration quickly, started adding trainer movements as a distraction. He did break early a few times but the more repetitions we did the better he was able to hold the skill so keep building this up at home!
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.
