Beani did awesome around Kombi today! He needs a little tidying in his skills but worked well around other dog distractions.
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: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: For his first session we worked on loose lead outside in the carpark around Kombi. Beani did pretty well though did pull a bit at the start for his general walking. He was pretty unfazed by Kombi, he would occasionally look or pull a bit towards Kombi but there was no reactivity and we were able to shorten the distance between them over time. His engagement was good but keep working on it to keep his focus on you during walks.
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: For his second session we worked on drops around Kombi and another dog. He could be a bit cheeky going into them but held them really well and didn't react to either dog in the classroom (even when the malamute was barking towards him!). Very proud of his focus in this one, just work on sharpening up his speed going into drop.
|Skill learnt: Middle Position
|Comment: For his last session we worked on middles around 2 dogs (Kombi and another dog). Beani happily goes into middles but doesn't like to stay there so we worked on building his duration in middles and having him walk around in middles by following a lure. With a lure he was happy to do so but if there was no treat present he would get out of middles to sniff around. This is a great trick for him to continue with so keep working on it 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.
