Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: First session Crystal worked on her place skill. This session we worked on sending her to place from a short distance while also working on her duration with trainer movement/distractions. The trainer was able to quickly move around the bed, move away and sit down and go out of sight. Crystal broke before her release word a handful of times but was easily redirected back to the bed by saying uh uh. Keep working on this at home. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Next session Crystal worked on her “down” skill. She did well during this session holding the skill whilst another dog was trained near by and her trainer moved around her. We also worked on asking her to down while the trainer took a couple of steps away, this was a bit more of a challenge as she likes to follow the trainer then go into position but was beginning to get the hang of it. Keep up the good work at home! Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: In Crystals final session we worked on some confidence building with Paws Up and using the wobble board. Crystal quickly picked up Paws Up, happily putting her front two paws on the pod. We moved onto the wobble board, Crystal was a bit hesitant of its movements and would only eat treats off of it and put one paw on it quickly but with more practise her confidence will grow! Focus: Confidence X

We recommend your next step should be…

Attend a Basic Obedience Course

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.
