Bingo did well around dogs today, he seems to only be bothered by really energetic and barking dogs. We would recommend attending our Basic Obedience course or our casual group classes to work on his behaviour around other dogs when with you
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: Recall
|Comment: For his first session we took Bingo outside to work on his recalls while walking. Bingo was very engaged on his walks so we had to wait for him to get a bit distracted and look away before recalling him along the grass area. Bingo recalls fairly well though can often swing a bit wide unless there is a lure or hand to help guide him straight so the focus for today was getting him to recall straighter to the trainer. This still needs a bit of work but he had no issues performing the recall and finishing in a sit so well done!
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: For his second session we worked on loose lead outside with another dog nearby (who was doing duration in drops). Bingo did really well walking quite close to the other dog, he would do a small pull when within 2-3m away if trying to walk past but was easy to bring back in line. We did find getting Bingo into a drop at that distance to the dog made it easier for him so make sure you are putting Bingo into a drop when he is distracted by other dogs. He did get more distracted when some energetic dogs arrived in the carpark, again it was easier to put him in a drop with the foot brake rather than try and pull him away.
|Skill learnt: Trick Training
|Comment: For his last session we worked Bingo's brain by doing some shaping onto a dumbbell. Bingo did take quite a bit of the session to figure out he was supposed to interact with the dumbbell in some way but once he did start getting it he was able to get several touches and even started putting his paw on it. Even though the target had been for him to pick it up on his mouth it was quite cute to see him with his paw on 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.
