Beani was a bit distracted and cheeky with his skills today so keep pushing the drop and place skills at home. He did do well for his paw painting even though he doesn't like his paws being held!
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 worked on Beani's paw print painting for art week. Beani is very wriggly with his paws being handled so this was a great way to help condition him to having his paws handled. Beani may not have done the neatest of paw prints but he did so well for a dog that doesn't like his paws being handled. We rewarded him with lots of cuddles after to finish on a positive note as we are so proud of his efforts!
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: For his second session we worked on the drop skill with a focus on duration. He wasn't the best going into his drop, it would require the trainer getting his attention with a treat first. In drop we tested him with lots of repetitions of the trainer moving away, saying goodbye and moving around him excitedly. He did break quite a few times but did show some moments of impulse control, when he would wiggle his butt or wag his tail at the movement but stayed in drop. Keep working on this at home, he is being a bit cheeky with it!
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: For his last session we worked on the place skill outside around Kombi. Beani was quite a bit distracted this session, normally he ignores Kombi fairly well but was looking towards him frequently and was distracted by the grass around him. We tested him with the same distractions as the drop - he did do a bit better with the place but still broke sometimes so really push his skills at home and make sure he knows his release word well (test him with other words to solidify it!).
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.
