Freya was very excited to be back at 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."
|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Freya was very excited when the trainer approached and it took a few minutes for her to settle before the trainer entered to get her. By waiting for her to settle it reinforced better behaviour (to reduce her jumping). Once we started loose lead work she took a while to focus on the trainer as there were multiple dog and people distractions within the classroom. Freya responded really well to the training and towards the end of the session we were walking past dog distractions with her engaging with the trainer and not pulling towards the dog.||Focus: Back to Basics||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: We focused on further developing this skill under high distraction (dogs). We started from a larger distance and worked on developing her speed into going into the drop. Occasionally she ignored the command but towards the end of the sessions she was progressing well and was able to drop right in front of the dog distraction. This still requires a lot more work but so far she is making great progress||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Play||Comment: Since Freya was doing a fabulous job today we decided to end the sessions with a bit of play. This is an important exercise (especially with a young dog) as it assists with building engagement, recall, impulse control and is great exercise (for both of us!). Freya loves toys so we went down to the paddocks and when I threw her a toy she loved chasing it but she struggled to bring it back. Luckily her trainer had a trick up her sleeve and had multiple toys on hand! When Freya got the toy; the trainer would call her and start waving another toy around enticing her to come back and then she would throw that toy and repeat the process. Freya loved this game and also started to bring the other toy back and drop it at the trainers feet before another toy was thrown. What a great day for Freya!||Focus: Repetition||C+|
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.
