Hugo actually did really well with all his skills today, Loose lead will take some practice. He also had abit of diarrhoea so I stoped feeding him fritz but it might not of been that because it was pretty soon after, so he’s been outside today hopefully is better once he gets home!!
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: Place Training||Comment: In Hugo’s first session we trained place, he actually knows place really well, when he does break you have to make sure you correct him by doing this, this will help teach him duration and listen skills. When he did break I would say ‘agh ah’ and lead pressure back onto the object. After awhile he started to lay down on the object and once he did that we would give him lots of rewards because he has learnt to relax. Keep practicing at home your doing great already.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session we trained drops and working on his duration. If he would break from his drop without you saying again I would say ‘agh ha’ and step on the lead as in lead pressure. So he knows he can’t break without your command. He did do to bad but this skill will help with his jumping so practicing this at home would be fantastic.||Focus: Duration||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Hugo’s last session we trained Loose lead walking, in this session we did it inside. What we go by is if they can’t walking nicely on the lead outside with the normal distractions start inside, it’s easier to keep the dogs engagement instead of trying to get it back. When ever he would look at me I would reward with ‘yes’ and a treat, if he would pull then I would walk the other way, start with low distractions inside or out the back yard once he does this perfect thats when you can start out the front yard.||Focus: Repetition||C|
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.
