Dyson is a very smart and confident puppy who smashed through his last say of puppy school - fantastic work Dyson! Being a puppy he does struggle with duration of some skills but he certainly has the enthusiasm to go far in his 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."
|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: For his last day of puppy classes we started off with touch targeting. Dyson took to this almost immediately, offering a touch to the wooden spoon straight away. He repeatedly touched the spoon with his nose over the session. I would highly recommend to continue this skill at home as he is very keen on it and it opens up his skills set to a lot of trick based skills.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: For his second session we worked on body conditioning with the paws up skill. Dyson did take a little while to understand what was being asked of him but luring upwards over the pod and bucket did help. It was difficult to get him to place 2 paws on the object as he'd just put one paw on and wave the other around while trying to get the food. This is a fun skill to keep practising at home - eventually after he puts both front paws on the object you can start encouraging him to move his back feet for a pivot which can really help strengthen his back leg muscles.||Focus: Foundation||C-|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For his final session we used Dyson's place and drop skills to get some "graduation" photos. He was very good and was able to be left sitting in one spot while the trainer took photos without him moving which can be very hard for a puppy! After we finished off with some place duration which he has really improved with - well done for continuing his skills at home!||Focus: Duration||C-|

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.
