Jaeger did well with his obedience today but lost focus with dogs and people distractions.
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: Jaeger came into the classroom a little overwhelmed so we decided to do some place and drop duration to help him settle. By the end of the session Jaeger settled on place but easily broke when people or dogs entered the room. He did show progress throughout the session and eventually settled.||Focus: Duration||C+|
|Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning||Comment: Jaeger improved with this skill as the session went on. At the start he was being lured into the muzzle with food. We started at the very edge of the muzzle and with only a few repetitions we were able to place the treat at the back of the muzzle (to encourage his full mouth into the muzzle). Jaeger even started to place his face in the muzzle without any prompting. However during the end of the session Jaeger started to lose focus as there was another dog in the classroom. The next step for Jaeger would be to work on muzzle conditioning around distractions.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Since Jaeger struggled with loose lead walking from the kennel to the classroom we decided to work on this for our last session. He struggled at the start to maintain focus on the trainer however once some distractions were minimised (no other dogs or people) he was doing really well. He often made eye contact with the trainer showing his engagement. The next step for this would be to increase his distractions by having other people around. It is important to start with low distractions and gradually build them up. Jaeger really struggles with engagement therefore this also needs to be focused on.||Focus: Back to Basics||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.
