Bleu had a great day today, he worked with a different trainer today and seemed much more comfortable than his first 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."
|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Bleu was happy to see his trainer today, he was a little unsure when it came to attaching the lead but after some treats and encouragement we were able to make our way to the classroom. Once here we worked on his place skill, there were two other dogs being trained at the same time (plus more in crates) as well as another person fixing some rope to the ceiling, so lots going on! Bleu did really well to remain on place, only breaking position once or twice throughout the whole session! Keep building his confidence around new people, he did well today to work around that many people while still doing his skill!||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: This session focused on building some duration in his drop position. Bleu showed some prior knowledge of this skill so we were able to jump straight into building duration around mild distractions. He held his drop with another dog being trained and some people coming/going from the classroom. He did break position a few times but that was mostly when the trainer tried to challenge him a bit more, if that did happen we took a step back and built back up!||Focus: Duration||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Lastly Bleu practiced his loose lead walking. We started in the classroom, he showed some good focus in here so we decided to make our way outside. While out here he started off well but then a gust of wind moved a banner which made a loud noise against the fence. Bleu became quite distracted/unsure. We made sure to remain in this area until he settled so he didn’t associate the scary banner each time he comes this way. He recovered really quickly and we were able to finish off the session back inside the classroom. We then scattered lots of treats near the banner so he could make peace with it!||Focus: Distraction||B|
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.
