It was great to see Mr Jerry today, he has good basic skill and duration. Jerry thrives when in a controlled position (place or drop), he showed no visible signs of reactivity. Continue his training at home .
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: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his first session, Jerry focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with repetitions under distraction (training outside). We focused on this skill to improve his decision making as part of his canine reactivity. Jerry performs well with his drops when engaged with his trainer, he can easily become distracted by the environment, dogs or people. Jerry thrives when in a controlled position, he showed no visible signs of reactivity towards other dogs within the classroom. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning||Comment: In his second session, Jerry focused on learning the new skill 'muzzle' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill as a safety aspect of his canine reactivity. Jerry performed very well, he interacted with the Muzzle quickly, happily placing his nose inside. As the session progressed he began to develop duration within the muzzle, holding for approximately 30 second. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home, focusing on conditioning the muzzle as a positive with treats and training. Jerry would use a size 5 bracket muzzle, we are currently out of stock.||Focus: Conditioning||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his final session, Jerry focused on further developing his skill 'sending to place' with repetitions under distractions (2 dogs training within the classroom and food). Jerry performed well, he can become very distracted by food and show no engagement with his trainer. But with some guidance he slowly began to ignore the food distractions. During this session Jerry showed no visible signs of reactivity towards the other dogs. Jerry was also challenged with remaining on passive place for 30 minutes while the trainer worked with another dog. Jerry successfully remained on place despite the high distractions (2 dogs training within classroom).||Focus: Distraction||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.
