Dexter did some fantastic work with his loose lead+drop right next to another dog! He also started learning a new trick that he hasn't quite grasped yet but not for lack of trying!
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: For his first session we worked on Dexter's loose lead with some drops. He did quite well at this and had great engagement with the trainer, even when walking close by another dog. Well done Dex!||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For his second session we started with a new trick for Dexter called pick a card. As this is new for him we worked on just getting him to bite onto a single card - he was good at touching it with his nose but didn't get to the point of biting it to grab. This can be a fun one to continue with Dexter at home with jumbo sized cards.||Focus: Foundation||D+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For his last session we continued with the card trick. While he still didn't grab the card we did progress from touching the card to licking the card! Holding a treat on the card so that he has to open his mouth to get it can help him to understand to open his mouth with this.||Focus: Foundation||D+|

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.
