It was great to see Dex today. I would like to recommend a private though. A private is where you guys come in, with Dex and you can talk to us a few of his issues or concerns, so we can get a better understanding where he is at and why he might react to dogs. We can show you the skills he needs to learn for confidence and basic obedience and why this will help in the future.
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: Conditioning||Comment: In Dex’s first session we trained confidence walk. He was really unsure when I went to get him and because it is a new environment he needs to know this place, so we went for a walk. He wasn’t taking treat either which is a sign that he’s nervous. He was happy once we went for a walk but still not taking treats.||Focus: Repetition||A+|
|Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building)||Comment: In Dex second session we trained the confidence course. This is basically self explanatory but it’s a course we have down here that builds up there confidence, which he did amazing at. He was so happy and running through it like he’s done it before.||Focus: Repetition||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his last session we trained drops. We went into the classroom and let him sniff around he started taking treats from my hand as well so much progress in one day. Was great to see that he knows his drops. Now we didn’t have any dogs in the classroom at this time because he was barking a lot while dogs were walking by. I think the reason he barks at dogs because he doesn’t have much confidence so first we want to build his confidence up then we can train him around other dogs, if we push him to much in dogs he won’t trust us trainers and his progress will go backwards.||Focus: Duration||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.
