Chema did a great job today! He still needs some work on his loose lead around distractions but is making great progress on his other obedience skills.
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: Chema was very excitable coming from the kennels and did pull quite a bit on the lead. He did still listen well to his drop command though which was good. Once in the classroom we worked on his place skill - sending to place from a distance and using ball distractions. Chema did really great work with both of these! He happily ran to place from a few metres away and stayed on place while a tub of tennis balls was dropped in front on him. Awesome work from Chema!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his second session we worked on Chema's loose lead skill with the cup of water challenge. Chema was very distracted outside and would pull a lot (and spilt a lot of water!). We therefore spent most of the session in the classroom working on his loose lead around another dog. Chema did much better in this environment and barely spilt any water which was great! He also showed much better engagement with only looking at the other dog a few times.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his last session we worked on Chema's emergency drops. Chema would sometimes not go into drop if you didn't have his full focus so increasing engagement will help with this. He did break early a few times as well so work on duration at home if he is around distractions. Otherwise he did a great job and was able to do emergency drops while jogging.||Focus: Distraction||B|

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.
