Ernie really enjoyed his first Day School at Windamere with Canine Connect, he has room to improve but he is a smart boy with a lovely personality.
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: Place Training||Comment: Picked up place with ease, offered the behaviour after very few repetitions. Worked on this first so we could incorporate engagement and build value to the “yes” marker.||Focus: Duration||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Worked on loose lead walking with engagement. Initially Ernie would sniff and wasn’t engaged, but with repetition he picked up what he was meant to do. A private appointment addressing this would be beneficial for him in his future development.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Ernie really struggled with drop and following a lure. He has alot of potential, he just needs lots of repetition and clear markers on when he does the right thing.||Focus: Back to Basics||D+|
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.
