Jasper loved being back in training today but spent a lot of time wanting tummy rubs! He did well with his skills today still!
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."
|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: For his first session we worked on loose lead outside in the carpark. Jasper did so well with his loose lead even with another dog around he kept good pace with the trainer. We worked Jasper a bit further with some inside turns and auto sits, he wasn't as sharp with these so this would be a good area to keep working on to increase his focus and awareness of what the trainer is doing.
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: For his second session we worked on place duration while the trainer came in and out of the classroom door. Even with using different voices, being excitable, wearing different hats/masks and banging loudly on the door he held his place quite well - he would only get off once the trainer was next to the bed as he wanted cuddles and tummy rubs. Use send to place if he is going crazy at home when people are at the door so that he can stick to set boundaries.
|Skill learnt: Trick Training
|Comment: For his last session we did something a little different by having Jasper start on the quoits skill. Jasper would hold the ring for a second if given directly to him but was a bit confused with picking it up off the ground. We worked on shaping but he didn't quite get past the barely touching it for a treat stage. He did use his paw at the trainer a few times which showed he was a bit unsure and frustrated so to finish off we did some climbing up on objects/paws up which he had a lot of fun with and ended the session really positive for him. Good trying Jasper! The more shaping we do with tricks the easier it will be to pick up on new trick skills.
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.
