Chema had a good first day back! He was a little off during his second session, but he started off strong and definitely bounced 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: Trick Training||Comment: Chema began his day practicing his ‘meerkat’ trick, focusing on duration as he seemed to lack in it today. Chem was so excited for his training today and bounded into the classroom. The trainer began by luring Chema into a sit, then proceeded to hold the treat above his head and used the verbal cue “meerkat” as he sat pretty. Chema was able to sit pretty for several seconds as long as he was getting continuous treats. Keep focusing on this at home and begin to use less frequent rewards while in that position. Great work, Chem-Chem!||Focus: Duration||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Next up, Chem worked on his ‘emergency drops’ in the cattery with plenty of pesky cat, bunny and bird distractions. Chema was heavily distracted during this session and only performed about 3 good emergency drops. The trainer focused on going back to a slower pace for him, knowing he has had a couple weeks away from CC. Chema responded better when going slower, but we know he is capable of more! Keep pushing him and be sure to use his non-reward marker “ah ah” when needed and try again.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: To finish up, Chema worked on his ‘heel’ skill, focusing on keeping his engagement with distractions in the classroom. Chema aced it! The trainer began by having a lure close to his nose, and once he proved how well he can do, the trainer slowly began to fade the lure further away, and Chema still smashed it! He walked and stopped exactly when the trainer did, which is exactly what we want! Keep pushing him with this at home and use a heavier lure if needed. So good seeing you again Chem!||Focus: Distraction||A|

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.
