Frankie did well today, today we focused on mostly lead conditioning and Loose lead walking. Didn’t see any lead reactive behaviour which was fantastic, but did find she was abit nervous around other dogs so that’s where the lead reactivity might come in.
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: In Frankies first session we trained place. We trained this skill first because she was very nervous and wasn’t taking food. Place is a self soothing skill, she was nervous to get onto the bed which we call ‘place’ but with some small lead pressure she was able to get on, but would walk straight off. In her next level I think working on this would be fantastic for her, and a place for her to eventually go to, to settle.||Focus: Repetition||C|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In frankies second session we trained Loose lead walking inside. Outside was to distracting for her, and what we like to say is keeping there engagement is a lot easier then gaining it back. Practicing loose lead inside with less distractions is what we start with until there perfect at it. Because if they can’t loose lead walk perfectly inside then there is not way there going to outside. I think loose lead is our main focus with her 100%.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In frankies last session we wanted to do the car conditioning but unfortunately the van we were going to do it in wasn’t back in time, so we practiced our drops around another dog who was being trained at the same time, she was still not taking food so we had to use abit of lead pressure then she would go into the drop. And her reward was ‘yes’ and lots of pats. I have found she gets nervous around other dogs as she was shaking the whole time while she was in the drop but because it was a controlled position she did feel comfortable watching the other dog from a distance while in the position.||Focus: Duration||B|
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.
