Harley had fun training with a new trainer today. Her engagement was on all day, trying very hard with all her skills.
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: Harley went down to the carpark to work on her emergency drops outside. Harley was happy to go down into her drop as we walked, although taking her time going into the skill. One in the skill, Harley was fairly consistent with the duration of the skill. She hopped up every now and then, although would quickly go back into the skill when reminded. As we continued repetitions, Harley's duration for stronger, waiting for her release word to get up.
|Skill learnt: Recall
|Comment: We put the long lead on Harley and practiced her recall in the classroom. After a few repetitions, Harley was happily coming back every time so we made our way outside. Once outside, Harley was very distracted by the smells, so we took her off the long line for a bit and continued working on her regular recall. This got her attention, with her recall strengthening over the course of the lesson. After some more repetition we chucked the long line back on, with Harley coming back the majority of the time for the rest of the lesson.
|Skill learnt: Middle Position
|Comment: Harley finished the day off with her middles skill. Harley was quite hesitant to go in-between her new male trainers legs, so we spent some time helping condition Harley, giving her the confidence to go in-between our legs without fear. Harley stayed following a treat through our legs consistently. One between our legs in position, Harley wasn't quite sure what we wanted her to do, so we spent our time showing Harley we wanted her to go into a sit. Harley kept going into a drop but after luring her consistently, she stayed going into the sit every time by the end of the lesson.
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.
