Chase was great fun to have in the classroom today.
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: Spin||Comment: First up for Chase was spin. He was very distracted and pulling to get to any smell that he could. The trainer worked on his engagement using treats and after a time had his focus enough to start to lure Chase slowly around to spin. Chase did well to follow the lure although at times he did get distracted and the trainer had to work on getting engagement back. Next time it would be good to work towards fading the lure.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Chase does well in the crate and the trainer had no need to use a session specifically for crate training. He was happily following food into the crate. He did at time bark but a quick Uhuh and a bang on the crate was enough to discourage this behaviour. The trainer used the extra session to work on his place skill. This aids in helping give Chase boundaries and helps with impulse control and self settling. Chase does already have a basic understanding of this skill so the trainer pushed this further with more exaggerated movements to distract Chase. He did break a number of times with the trainer movement but the trainer upped the frequency of treats and Chase was soon holding place better. At home practice with low level distractions and build up slowly.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: Last up was middles. A great controlled position for dogs to learn. The trainer used a lure to help guide Chase between the legs. At first he wanted to drop between the trainers legs. However, luring up helped Chase into the sit position. Next session it would be good to see Chase follow the lure better into position and possibly start to fade it out.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
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.
