Chester Bear is still building his confidence, therefore will struggle within a large group class environment. We recommend weekly day schools to help develop his confidence through obedience. He would be suitable for our Basic Obedience class which will be released towards the end of this month. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details.
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: Today Chester started off his day with some ‘loose lead’ walking inside the classroom. Chester Bear was a bit nervous, especially with another dog in the classroom who was a little noisy. To get Chester more comfortable, his session began with plenty of cuddles and treats, to continue conditioning him to the classroom, and condition him to a new trainer. Once he started taking his treats more, we began his walks. Little Chester Bear did some beautiful loose lead, but if someone were to enter the classroom, he would get distracted and did not perform the skill as well. We want to keep progressing with Chester so he is able excel in his loose lead and perform it nicely in any given environment.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: Next up, we mock bandaged charming Chester’s leg. Chester was such a brave boy and did not even flinch when I began wrapping up his leg, he simply just sat on place and watched, which is fantastic! This is such a good skill for him to have incase there comes a time where he needs the real deal, well done Chester!||Focus: Conditioning||A|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: To finish Chester’s day, we worked on his ‘place’ training. Chester did relatively well, but there were times where he would not listen and instead get too invested in his surroundings, but, when he did listen, he absolutely smashed it. We want to keep building Chester’s engagement so he is able to perform the skill whenever he is asked, not just when he wants to. Once his focus is better, we can then start to test him with distance and different distractions.||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.
