Bingo was a bit more distracted than usual today. Whether it may have been the crazy weather or a full kennel environment he did struggle a little with his skills but gave an overall good performance.
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 worked on recalls outside. Bingo was a bit distracted by some light rain but stayed fairly focused. Again he did struggle with recalling in a straight line if no lure was used (swinging wide again) so keep working on lured recalls at home to get him used to coming straight to you.
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: For his second session we worked on loose lead outside around other dogs. Bingo was a bit cheeky with this today, he seemed to get distracted easier by other dogs and broke his drops a few times. Training does go up and down but being consistent in his training will help it go up overall and we have seen some good progress from him the past few dayschools so keep going with it!
|Skill learnt: Middle Position
|Comment: For his last session we worked on the middles skill. Bingo is very good at this skill, he was able to go into it on verbal cue only (and sometimes not even that!) And we were able to test him with different angles which he did well with up to 90 degrees from him. He walks pretty well in middles too and did some sidesteps with a lure. We started a little on teaching him to come in from the front, turn around and go into middles - work on this at home so that he can go into middles no matter what angle you are at!
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.
