Kipi did well today considering he has not had a lot of training with Nat previously.
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: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: for his first session we took Kipi outside for loose lead. Kipi has a really good understanding of loose lead principles. Even though he wasn't taking treats for the first session he kept beautiful pace with the trainer outside around the lawn. The first person who walked nearby outside did really distract him and he did pull a lot but with the second person he just watched them while continuing his loose lead. Fantastic work! Next time we'd like to see him do loose lead past a variety of people so that he can learn to not react when people go past. At home continue working on his loose lead (especially around the house and yard) with some distractions so that he learns to ignore stimuli. Kipi also did fantastic each time he was walked between the classroom and kennels for his sessions - he walked next to the trainer with a lovely loose lead.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: for his second session we brought Kipi into the classroom for his place skill. In the classroom he had 3 other people to deal with as well as 2 other dogs all in nearby proximity. After a few minutes he did settle on place and started taking treats. While he didn't properly relax he was lying down and just kept an eye on everything going on. When we would release him he would show preference to returning on place - for him, place is a safety skill that he feels secure on. As he was a bit wary still we didn't push him this session and allowed him to adjust to all the activity going on. Next time we'd like to see him relax a bit more on place even with. A lot of distractions going on. Continue using place a lot at home as he does seem to really like the skill.||Focus: Confidence||C-|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: for his last session we worked on Kipi's drops in the classroom. It took a few attempts to get his focus and for him to drop but then he was great listening to the trainer. His duration is fantastic and he even didn't want to come out of it when released near the end. He still watched everything that went on but gave good engagement to the trainer. He is able to stay in drop with very small distractions (trainer taking small steps in front of him) but breaks at larger movements. Next time we'd like to see him tolerate bigger movements from the trainer. At home practice his drops and taking small movements to help with his progress.||Focus: Foundation||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.
