Daisy had a great first day. She is a very clever girl and loved her training!
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."
|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: First session Daisy started to learn place. The only rule is all four paws on the bed until given her release word “free”. This skill is great to build up her impulse control, promote self settling and redirect unwanted behaviours. Daisy began to pick this up quickly and we introduced the verbal cue “place” and began to increase her duration for a few seconds at a time. Keep this up at home.
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: Daisy’s second session we worked on her “lay down” skill (drop). This skill is a fantastic control position, great for impulse control and again good to redirect unwanted behaviours. Daisy showed some understanding of the verbal cue but was very quick to pop back up for the treat before her release word. Today we focused repetition and building up her duration for a few seconds at a time before releasing her. Keep working on this at home before adding additional distractions.
|Focus: Back to Basics
|Skill learnt: Recall
|Comment: Daisy final session we worked on her recall. We started in the classroom working around another dog and trainer as distraction, Daisy shows some understanding of the verbal cue “come” but can get a bit distracted by her surroundings. We used treats to help lure her towards the trainer and into a sit. Keep working on this at him in familiar environments, on lead and over time gradually increase distractions.
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.
