Beani's Doggy Dayschool Report

2023-11-24

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: For his first session today the trainer took Beani around the property for a loose lead walk to help build engagement and training drive. The trainer also used this as an opportunity to work on Beani’s door manners! He was taken to almost every door outside the pet resort accomodation area today (this was a little too distracting) and the trainer found it easier to get him to wait at the door in a drop rather than a sit, it makes it harder for him to just spring up when the door is open and helps him make better decisions. All in all this was a great first session and has set the tone for the rest of the day. Focus: Manners B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For his second session today the trainer worked on his wave skill. He is coming along well with this being able to do the skill with the hand gesture and the verbal. In order to do it multiple times he does require food to be present as this motivates him to do multiple repetitions. The focus of the session today was to increase how many times Beani waves his paw before getting rewarded, when the session started he was able to do 2 but by the end he was able to do 4-5 in a row! Focus: Repetition C+
Skill learnt: Targeting (touch) Comment: For his last session today the trainer worked with Beanie on his touch targeting. This is not only a fun trick to do it also makes Beani use his brain and have a bit more responsibility for learning the skill (less guidance from the trainer) he hasn’t done much of this before so todays session was just focused on teaching him the foundations for the skill which he has seemed to pick up rather quickly! By the end of the session the trainer was able to present the touch pole to Beani and he was consistently touching it with his nose! Focus: Foundation C+

We recommend your next step should be…

Attend a Basic Obedience Course

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.
