This handsome boy did well with his training today, but he did lose focus when there were other dogs and trainers around.
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: To start off Jaeger’s day, we practiced his loose lead both inside the classroom and outside. Jaeger has such nice loose lead walking, but he lacks in engagement. It is important for Jaeger to maintain engagement with us so he is then not getting distracted on his walks and will listen to what he is being told. However, the beautiful boy did manage to give us some of his attention during the end of his session. In the future we want Jaeger to be less focused on his surroundings and more focused on who is walking him.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Next up, we practiced his ‘place’ skill, by sending him to and from place. Jaeger did relatively well, but he struggled to perform this skill if he was not already walking. If he was asked to go to place from a still position, he did not go and instead just sat down. We want Jaeger to keep working on this skill so he is able to perform it from any position, still or moving. This is an important skill for Jaeger to have as it is a great engagement/focus builder.||Focus: Distance||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: To finish up, Jaeger did some more loose lead walking outside, but with dog distractions. He did fairly well, but again, he lacked engagement and would get too invested in what the other dogs were doing. Towards the end, he managed to give some engagement, which was great! In the future we want Jaeger to be able to focus, even if there are other dogs around, as it is very important for him to be able to focus in high distracting environments.||Focus: Distraction||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.
