What a sweet girl Ellie is, we love having her here for Day School!
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: Drop/ Down
|Comment: Ellie’s first session we worked on her drop skill. Today’s focus was high energy play in between her drops to help build her impulse control and help redirect her jumping. She did well in this session, needing a hand signal to go into the drop position she preferred to default to a sit. To end the session we worked on mock greetings, having Ellie in a drop while someone approached, rewarding when she stayed in position and if she broke position the person walked away. We also worked on approaching the person and if Ellie jumped or pulled ahead we stopped and walked away and if she walked nicely we approached, asked her to drop, said hello and walked away. Keep working on this at home to help manage her jumping further.
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: Ellie’s second session we worked on her place (mat) skill. Today we worked on sending her to place, having a strong send to place is great to help redirect behaviours. Ellie did well sending to from a distance with minimal distractions, we added plates of kibble on the floor to increase distraction levels. Ellie did well only going to the kibble once or twice. Keep working on this at home pushing distraction levels.
|Skill learnt: Recall
|Comment: For Ellie’s final session we worked on her recall. Today we worked on recalling away from people. Ellie did really well this session recalling away from other trainers who were saying hello and patting her with higher energy. She struggled a bit when getting the best butt scratches ever but with repetition got the hang of it. Keep working on her recalls at home in different environments and different 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.
