Cookie mostly focused on her orbit skill today which she is progressing really well with. It won't be long before we are able to move onto the next major stage of the skill!
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: Cookie was a bit energetic when getting her put of the kennels and was pulling a but so we worked on loose lead for her first session. She was very distracted the first 5 minutes and would sniff around and pull on the grassy area. Once she settled down into training mode she listened very well and walked nicely. We did a few random drops while walking and while she was initially a bit slow on them she did drop each time she was asked. For the last several minutes we took her back into the cattery where she did really well by not reacting even though a lot of the cats were active and vocal. Next time we'd like to see Cookie less distracted on the lead with better focus and manners from the get go. At home continue encouraging good focus from her in distracting environments.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For her second session we continued work on Cookie's orbit skill. Cookie seems to really loves this skill and happily follows the lure backwards around the trainer. We worked on getting her to do full orbits by lure which she did progress with. Next time we'd like to make the orbit much smoother and start labelling it as she gets more confident. Keep up the great work with this skill at home, she is doing so well with it!||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For her last session we continued on with her orbit skill. She did get a bit smoother with it during the session but we did still use heavy luring. She should be ready for labelling with this skill very soon - at home encourage her around the whole orbit with lures.||Focus: Repetition||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.
