Jamie did struggle with a few skills today but did well overall.
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: For his first session we worked on place in the classroom. He was quite excitable with the other dogs in the room and didn't take treats for the first few minutes. Once he settled down and was taking treats we did some toy distractions (squeaky toy, balls being thrown etc). He did break a few times but after that was quite good and was able to walk past toys and food to place quite well. Next time we'd like to see him on place with higher distractions to really push his skills. At home practice his place with high distractions to help him adjust to our more distracting environment.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his second session we did loose lead in the classroom. Jamie did very well at his loose lead with no pulling and was very responsive to light lead pressure. We did try and add in a few drops but he wouldn't listen and follow the command so we kept it at just loose lead. Next time we'd like to push his skill by having him do his loose lead outside with other dogs walking as he can get very excitable with other dogs around. At home practice his loose lead in familiar environments and encourage engagement from him during walks.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his final session we worked on his drops as he had struggled with drop during the loose lead session. Again, he really struggled with following the command/hand gestures and had low duration for the skill. Next time we'd like to see him drop when asked by the trainers and hold it until released. At home practice his drops often to help him get into the drops quicker and do the drops longer durations.||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.
