Bingo worked with a new male trainer today. He was very nervous as his training started but over a little bit of time working together quickly warmed up to him. Once we got to his second lesson, Bingo completely trusted his new trainer, having some fun throughout the rest of the day.
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: Bingo worked on his loose lead outside the classroom. As his new trainer greeted him, Bingo was inquisitive as we said hello. We got the lead on and made our way down to the classroom. Once on our way down, Bingo started getting a bit unsure being stuck with this new man. As we got to the pathway outside the classroom we started some repetition of loose lead walking. We were pretty relaxed with the criteria of this walk as we were working more on confidence and conditioning. Bingo would try and run away every now and then, hitting the end of the lead before returning back to the trainer. As we continued walking together we gave him a lot of praise and treats to help desensitise him as well as create a positive association with the trainer. As we spent more time together over the lesson, bingo was still cautious but stopped trying to get away from the trainer, walking by his side and happily taking treats.
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: Bingo worked on his place skill this lesson just outside the classroom. Bingo was immediately more confident this lesson, happily following his trainer outside. He excitedly jumped on and off place as asked, doing some quick repetition for some fun and bonding. Bingo started to paw at his trainer to try and get treats from him, showing he was becoming comfortable with the trainer as he started wanting to play with him. His skills were very solid this lesson, stepping off early a couple of times although spending the majority of the lesson doing as the trainer instructed.
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: Bingo finished with some obedience continuing with his drop skill in the classroom. Bingo worked around other dogs although spent the entire lesson not paying any attention them. Bingo happily went down into the skill, keeping engaged with his trainer for treats. He got up before his release every now and then but with a quick "uh uh" went straight back down into the skill waiting for us to let him up. As the lesson went on, he went down into the skill quicker and quicker, finishing the lesson strongly.
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.
