Jaxx did really well today with his training. It took a while for him to warm up but as he started training he became more engaged with the trainer and started relaxing more.
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: Targeting (touch)||Comment: Jaxx was quite good coming from the kennels - he was a little nervous outside and wasn't taking treats but still followed the trainer to the classroom. Once in the classroom we started off with some place duration to let him settle and he did really well with this. About halfway through the session he started taking treats so we started on some touch skill which he did really well with (he touched the wand each time he was asked). He also started to relax a bit more on place. Really good work from him!||Focus: Repetition||A|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his second session we took Jaxx outside of the classroom to work on his loose lead. Over the session he did improve from walking just ahead of the trainer to walking right next to them. We focused a lot on trying to get focus and engagement from him during the walk - only in the last five minutes did he start to turn his head a bit towards the trainer so we made sure to reward him a lot every time he did it. When walking at home give him treats often whenever he "checks in" with you during walks to encourage him to focus.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his last session we worked on Jaxx's drops. At the beginning of the session he was a bit distracted by the dogs in the class and needed a lure to get into drop. As the session progressed he started listening to the trainer better and didn't need the lure to go into drop. As he was already distracted by the classroom environment we mostly just focused on his duration which he did very well with. Continuing to work on his drops and moving into emergency drops will be a good progression for him as well as adding a needed safety skill for when he is stressed.||Focus: Duration||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.
