Kipi settled well back into the classroom but did seem a bit unsure of himself at times. He did love seeing all his favourite girls again though!
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: Muzzle Conditioning||Comment: Since Kipi had come back after a bit of a break we took it easy for his first muzzle session. He wasn't much interested in training until we got the muzzle on and gave him a treat and then he kinda switched into his training mode and gave good focus to the trainer. We just kept it simple and asked for good duration in the muzzle without using any straps. Kipi did quite well but did lose a bit of focus near the end. Next time we'd like to go back to using the straps as Kipi had been making good progress there. Continue conditioning him to the muzzle at home - use several short sessions as opposed to one bigger session.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning||Comment: We continued with muzzle for his second session. Kipi was very unfocused this session and seemed wary of another particular smlal dog in the classroom. Because of this we split the session between basic muzzle work and conditioning Kipi to the other dog. He did good throughout the session and then spent the last 2 minutes relaxing on place to help him settle down again.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: For his last session we had Kipi do duration on place to relax and then finished up with a refresher on his touch skill. Kipi was quite into the touch skill and put his nose on the target right away each time it was presented. Starting to mix some of his trick skills back into his dayschools may help to keep him focused and engaged on training. Next time we'd like to continue with his trick skills to keep Kipi engaged. At home, continue using trick skills regularly to keep Kipi keen for training.||Focus: Repetition||A|
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.
