It was great to have little miss Hera back today, she loves her training and learning new skills. She did show some smalls signs of reactivity when not in a controlled position (sit, drop or place), but redirected her focus back onto her trainer quickly.
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: Muzzle Conditioning||Comment: In her first session, Hera focused on further developing her skill 'muzzle' with Repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill as a safety aspect to her canine reactivity. Hera performed very well, she offers her nose into the muzzle straight away. The trainer began to increase the time Hera was wearing the muzzle (10 seconds, 30 seconds, etc). Hera was initially unsettled with the muzzle, but with some guidance she quickly began to maintain it well and focus on the skill she was working on (on and off place). We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her second session, Hera focused on further developing her skill 'drop' with repetitions under distractions (dogs training within the classroom). We focused on this skill to improve her decision making as part of her canine reactivity. Hera performed well, she can struggle to hold duration, especially when there are dog distractions. But with some guidance she began to maintain her drop well, even when a dog walked past her. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In her final session, Hera focused on further developing her skill 'loose lead walking' with repetitions under distractions (training outside). We focused on this skill to reduce her pulling. Hera focused on basics, following a lure and engaging with her trainer. Hera performed very well, she showed great engagement and did not pull. Focusing on basics help Hera understand the skill and will help her continue to succeed. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home in a low distracting environment.||Focus: Foundation||B+|
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.
