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!

|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Door Manners
|Comment: We practiced his drops around the facility, primarily working up near the gate/road where our handy man was also working on the fence. This environment offered plenty of distractions to test him with. Jack did well just watching everything around him and frequently checking in with the trainer. Keep pushing his drop skill, proofing it as much as possible.
|Skill learnt: Sit
|Comment: This session we practiced some sit and middles, working around some people distractions (since he gets quite excitable). He did well to remain focused on his trainer and hold position when someone approached. He did get very excitable but with guidance and lots of treats we were able to hold his focus.
|Skill learnt: Conditioning
|Comment: For his last session Jack got to work on something really fun! As part of our Arts and Craft week, we started with some paw paintings, however Jack wasn’t super keen on this. We moved to a licki-painting, (as he is sent home with) which he did so well at! We did finish the session up with some touch conditioning, making it a positive experience having his feet and legs handled, we recommend continuing this at home to help.
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.
