Bingo was great today! He worked with a fresher face today with a trainer he hasn’t had much to do with (male). This was amazing for him as he switched on almost straight away and jusy got to work, the more positive interaction he has like this with Men the better his reactions will become around them!
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 today the trainer thought it best to charge him up and get him focused with a bit of loose lead walking! However once he had shown just how ready he was to work today the trainer felt confident in pushing the criteria for this today. They had Bingo walking out in the car park not only nicely next to the trainer but around another dog! He was walking past them, behind them, in front of them and around them with no worries at all! He even rocketed into his sit and drop and allowed the other dog to walk past! The key to this session was his engagement and once the trainer had this he worked so well! The trainer couldn’t have been happier with a start to the day like this!
|Skill learnt: Desensitisation
|Comment: For his second session today the trainer worked a bit more on his greetings! To start the trainer themselves would get him on place or in a drop and would approach him trying to greet him. However the male trainer noticed that while he was getting excited for them, his usual trainer Shevi was a big distraction so the trainer used her as the person greeting him today! To start she would approach Bingo and he had to stay in a sit or drop, he was doing this easily so to challenge him the trainer started approaching the person trying to greet him, once he tried to pull ahead they turned him and recalled him back, initially he was a little excited and didn’t come back but he was quick to recover today and by the end of the session was shooting right back to the trainer when he was asked to! All in all today was awesome for Bingo who not only put in some solid work to his skills but also worked with a male trainer which in the past has been a challenge for him, awesome day Bingo!
|Skill learnt: Middle Position
|Comment: Bing had an amazing last session today. He was worked on his middles but using it as a safety position and practising for if this needs to be used while out in public! The trainer first would get him into a drop when he completed the middles position (the trainer was also not using lures today) the trainer would then step in front of Bingo and simulate asking someone to not approach, he had to stay in his drop and especially not walk past the trainer, he smashed this holding his drop really well today and not getting up even a little bit! You can see him doing this in his social video today! Moving forward adding in another person to the simulated scenario will be the next step in this training for him to really simulate a situation you may find yourself in out with Mr Bingo.
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.
