Bunji did really well today! He showed no signs of reactivity until the very last session, but even then he was able to bounce back!
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: Drop/ Down||Comment: Bunji began his day practicing his ‘drop’ skill, focusing on low distractions to get him warmed up. He did really well! He came across 2 dogs outside on the way to the classroom, but by utilising his drop skill, he showed no reactivity towards them, yay! Bunji dropped beautifully in the classroom too. Towards the end of the session a gentle doggo entered the classroom and trained across from Bunji and he remained in his drop, silently watching and not reacting, which is awesome! Keep practicing his drop skill at home to keep it nice and strong!||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Spin||Comment: Next up, Bunji worked on his ‘spin’ skill in the classroom with a doggo distraction and did AWESOME!! He did not react once and followed a lure so beautifully! At first when he spun, he would sit half way, but after lots of repetitions he finally nailed it. Keep practicing this skill at home with him. Spin is a great skill to have as it acts as a mini recall and redirects unwanted behaviour. Let us know how you go!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: To finish up, Bunji worked on his ‘place training’, focusing on duration with doggo distractions. At first he did super well, but once a certain dog entered the room Bunji displayed reactivity. The trainer switched him from place into a drop as it is more of a controlled skill for him. Once in the drop and with plenty of treats, Bunji was less reactive and his barking stopped. We would recommend a private and we are luckily enough that next week we have Brent available, who is an interstate dog trainer. The session time available is next Thursday at 5pm.

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.
