Jax got to try something new today, he got to train at the park! He did so well the trainers are very proud.
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: Engagement||Comment: All three sessions for Jax today were spent at the park! The first part was focused on getting him engaged in the new environment. Since there are lots of new and exciting things around it can be hard to bring their focus in. Jax had no problems at all with this, once he realised the trainer had treats he had eyes only for them. He wasn’t even bothered by the other dog that was present (who was very vocal and boisterous). Once he was showing the trainer some engagement we moved into the second part.||Focus: Conditioning||B+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: The next part of his training today was loose lead walking. Jax did really well not to pull ahead, he was very interested in his surroundings though. The trainer had to encourage him to check back in to start with (calling his name or walking backwards a few steps) but after a while he would happily sniff around for a few seconds then trot back to the trainer for a treat. Jax did so well and it was good for him to explore somewhere new.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Lastly Jax worked on his drop skill on the nice grassy field. This was a bit tough for Jax as the grass was wet which made it super smelly and fun. We made sure Jax was fully engaged with the trainer before asking for a drop. This way we know we are setting him up for success. If he wasn’t very engaged with the trainer they simply caught his attention (saying his name, funny noises or moving around) and then asked for the drop. Jax did super well today, he did all of his training around a reactive dog and made us proud!||Focus: Distraction||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.
