Harvey was full of beans today! We practiced lots of impulse control building skills as well as focusing on his manners.
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: Door Manners
|Comment: This first session focused on his door manners and loose lead walking. Harvey was very excited to get started today so we made sure to practice his manners at each door, getting him in the right state of mind for training. Once settled we continued on our way to the classroom. It is very important to have them calm and engaged before proceeding!
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: We had some fun doing quick repetitions on and off place as well as longer durations with trainer distractions. We made sure to practice his door manners coming out of the crate, opening the door slowly and releasing him with the word “break.” Harvey showed some good understanding of his place skill however was a bit cheeky a couple times, stepping off. We made sure to reinforce those boundaries, guiding him back on and then releasing him to reset the skill. Keep working on this one, it will be a great skill for Harvey to have!
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: The last session for Harvey focused on his drops. We practiced a mixture of quick repetitions as well as duration while the trainer moved around him slowly. Harvey showed some great understanding of his drop, he did break position a few times but guiding him back and then resetting helped him out big time! Keep working on those drops, this will be a great skill to redirect those unwanted/over-excitable behaviours.
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.
