Barney was a typical puppy today and was a bit all over the place for the start of his sessions. Once in training mode he did settle and improved in 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."
|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: When getting Barney out of his kennel it took a few minutes as he wouldn’t settle. However once he did settle and sit instead of jumping on the door he remained calm. Barney did well at loose lead walking. He had very good attention to start with and maintained eye contact. Towards the end he started to get distracted and his loose lead walking decreased.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Barney did really well with the place skill. At the start he did struggle with distance but by the end he was able to do it from a distance of about 5 meters. We were able to send from a distance while standing still, then tell him break to which he came and sat in front of the trainer.||Focus: Distance||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Barney did really well with his drop skill. We tested duration with distractions and he got better as the session went on. By the end we could roll balls past him and he would remain in drop position.||Focus: Distraction||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.
