Chema struggled with his drops today but did really well for his other skills. He also didn't react to the other dogs around him which was really great work from him!
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: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his first session we did loose lead outside with another dog nearby as a distraction. Chema did really well with his loose lead and by the end was walking very nicely next to the trainer. He did gave some issues near the beginning where he would consistently walk a little in front on an angle but he soon settled down into a proper pace. Next time we'd like to see him walking nicely the whole way through when walking outside. At home, keep up the good work and reward well for engagement and him staying beside you.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Chema really struggles with his duration in drop, even with low distractions, so our focus was on building duration this session. He did get better over the session but still needs some work so that next time we can use distractions to solidify his drop skill. At home reward frequently for staying in a drop and release him earlier if he is prone to breaking often.||Focus: Duration||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Chema has improved with his place skill! He went to place and only broke once for human movement. His duration was quite good so we moved onto toy distractions (balls and rope toys). He broke the first time for each object but then did really well by staying on place while the object were thrown past. Well done Chema! Next time we'd like to push the toy distractions a bit further to help him with his place skill. At home use toys as a low level distraction while he is on place to help him with his duration.||Focus: Distraction||B|
We recommend your next step should be…

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.
