Chilli had some fun working with a new trainer today. He was a bit cheeky at time although once in training mode he did really well.
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: Chilled came out of the gate pulling his way down to the classroom, so we started working on his loose lead walking. Once he was in the classroom Chilli switched into training mode, becoming a lot more responsive to his trainer. After a bit of repetition inside he was walking right by his trainer's side so we moved outside to the car park. Chilli would still momentarily pull every now and then, either trying to get to a smell or just losing his focus on his trainer for a few seconds, although quickly returning to his trainer's side to continue walking. By the end of the lesson he was walking nicely, attentive to his trainer's movements.||Focus: Manners||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Chilli worked on his drops in the classoom, going back to basics. Chilli would go down into the skill at first, although bouncing back up immediately. We worked on his duration in the skill, focusing on his boundaries while in the skill. After a bit of repetition we got Chilli to stay down in the skill more consistently.||Focus: Back to Basics||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: We took chilli outside to the carpark to work on his place skill in the shade. Chilli tried pulling his way up so we put in a few minutes of loose lead walking on our way over to reinforce that he has to walk nicely, not just when he's in a loose lead training lesson. Once we made it over to the bed, Chilli happily jumped on and off the bed when asked. He would let himself off the bed before his release word periodically, although jumping straight back on when reminded. By the end of the lesson he was jumping on and waiting for his release word almost every time.||Focus: Back to Basics||B|
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.
