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: Henry’s first and second session today was over in the pony club! Here we could push his skills with all sorts of distractions. These include birds, horse poo, grass, cars/trucks going past and many more small things! For the first session we worked on his loose lead and drop skill. Henry did super well and showed great engagement. He would get a bit distracted momentarily but it was easy to bring his focus back to us! Every now and then we would ask him to drop so we could test him with trainer distractions! Henry coped well and let the trainer run around like a crazy person and even step over him! Go Henry! Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: The second session we focused more on his place skill and some more drops! There was a large tyre that was filled in, we could use this as a place as it had very defined edges. Henry did so well with this and treated it exactly like he did any other place session! We finished off with some drops in a large sand pit, Henry got crazy excited in this and started doing zoomies. Since he was still on lead we didn’t want him to tangle himself up. The trainer loudly and clearly asked for a drop and he did it straight away! Even though he was super razzed up he still managed to listen! Keep up the good work, Henry has progressed heaps! Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: His last session today was all about his middles skill. We decided to really test him today by standing in front of him (face on) and asking for middles. Henry managed to stand in between the trainers legs but was facing the wrong way. To help him we lured him all the way through and then turned him around to come through the right way. Henry picked this up quickly, by the end of the session he would walk through the trainers legs (wrong way), turn around and come straight back (right way). This is really fun to do as it means you can do middles at pretty much any angle! Keep working on this one, Henry seems to really enjoy it. If you’re interested we have a basic obedience class starting up soon! Henry would be the perfect candidate for it, not only is it good for him but also helps you with handling skills! If you’re interested, email us to find out more. Focus: Repetition A

We recommend your next step should be…

Attend a Basic Obedience Course

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.
