Duke is smashing it each day at the moment! We saw some great progress in his focus and his skills today.
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: For his first session we worked on the place skill and tested Duke's knowledge of it with some movement distractions and adding energy to the movements. Duke did really well with this today, he only broke early a few times though was more distracted by people (and dogs) arriving in the carpark than the trainer moving around. Duke is showing great progress with this skill, well done Duke!
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: For his second session we worked on his loose lead skill on the grass before it got too hot. Duke was like a different dog on the grass today! So focused and walked so well, he had great engagement throughout and only pulled a few times if people walked past to try and go to them. We rewarded his great work with a dip in the shell pool - Duke loves the water! He happily went in and would just sit there in the water waiting for treats. He almost didn't want to leave the pool!
|Skill learnt: Middle Position
|Comment: For his last session as something different we did some work on the middles skill. Duke was very comfortable moving and sitting in between the trainer's legs so we worked on increasing the angles for him to go into middles (he was great if the trainer was in front of him but if they were turned at 90 degrees he would get a little lost on where he was meant to go). He seems to really enjoy this skill so we will keep working on it as it can be a great control position for him!
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.
