|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: Heidi was quite nervous to start with and would stay near the back of the kennel when the trainer approached. Throughout the day the trainer spent time just sitting in front of the gate throwing food into the kennel. After a while Heidi did come towards the front to get the food. Before long she was the taking food from the trainers hand. Fantastic progress. After many little sessions like this the trainer tried a few times to open the gate and put a lead on. However Heidi retreated again and avoid eye contact. The trainer didn’t want to push Heidi so soon and ruin the relationship that was building. So went back to talking and feeding treats through the gate. Heidi was much more comfortable with this and at one point not even raising her head from lying down to get the treats!! Towards the end of the day Heidi was starting to take treats from the trainer with the gate slightly open. It is slow progress, however, it is important not to rush this as this could cause the dog to retreat again. It was a pleasure spending time with Heidi today and we can’t wait to see her confidence grow.||Focus: Conditioning||X|
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.
