Kipi did very well today on his special day - he had good engagement and worked well with his skills.
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: Kipi was a little unsettled and had been growling a bit in the kennels this morning so we started him off on his favourite skill - place. As he seemed unsettled we kept it easy today with a focus on duration. Kipi was fantastic - he didn't break once and kept good focus and engagement on the trainer throughout. Next time we'd like to be able to do some distractions with Kipi though it is getting quite hard to get him to break! Keep up the great work with place at home.||Focus: Duration||A|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: Kipi was back to his usual self in the classroom so we continued work on his Middles (labelled as "tween") skill from his place. He did really well with this, coming off the place and between the legs to follow the lure really easily. He sat and waited in between the legs as well until released. Very proud of this boy! Next time we'd like to have him do it from different positions (ie. From a drop or sit instead of place) so that it can be done anytime. At home work on luring him in between the legs and rewarding for him looking up at you from the position.||Focus: Repetition||B+|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: For his final session we continued working on Kipi's touch skill with the label of "touch". Again, he really enjoys this skill and happily interacted with the spoon each time it was presented. Next time we'd like to transfer the touch skill onto some other objects which should be good fun for him. At home, continue using the touch skill as a fun part of your normal training.||Focus: Repetition||A|
We recommend your next step should be…

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.
