It was a pleasure to have Mr Kimchi back today, he is such a clever boy who loves his training and to play. I would recommend beginning to incorporate play into your general training at home. Keep up the great work.
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: In his first session, Kimchi focused on further developing his skill 'place' using red light, green light. We focused on this to challenge Kimchi with his obedience while excited and playing. Kimchi loves to play, he was initially so interested in playing he struggled to go to place when asked. But with some guidance he quickly began to stop playing (red light) and go to place as this would make the game continue (green light). We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Kimchi focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with repetitions and duration under distractions (training within the classroom with two other dogs training). Kimchi performs very well, he responds to the verbal cue 'drop' but can struggle with duration and distance. With some guidance he quickly began to maintain his drop well despite distractions. He successfully remained in a drop while the trainer walked around him. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final session, Kimchi focused on learning the new skill 'targeting' (touching a spoon with his nose) to help build engagement. Kimchi performed very well, he interacted with the target straight away, touching it with his nose. Quickly he began to repeatedly touch the spoon. He was performing so well the trainer began to add the verbal cue 'touch'. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Desensitisation||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.
