Knox was absolute amazing (like usual) he worked with his mate Sam today and the two had another fun yet productive day pushing Knox’s skills to new heights! We have an upcoming trick training course which we highly recommend Knox for coming up called canine Carnivale and we hope you’ll consider coming to join it!
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: For his first session to actively engage Knox the trainer worked on his muzzle skill again. To push him today the trainer has started to tie up the muzzle around the back end of Knox which they had never done that before. Having made this into a sort of game prior has made doing this much easier, the trainer is able to wrap the muzzle around Knox super easy and tie it up! He doesn’t let it tied on him for too long so going forward this can now be the focus.||Focus: Duration||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: (Red light green light) For his second session the trainer worked on some of Knox’s impulse control. He was working with Sam the male trainer today and we all know how much he loves a good cuddle with Sam, so this is what was used to rile him up today before asking for some skills. He got so into the cuddles today, flipping around and carrying on like a nutter, however the trainer then gave the “out” command which means Knox must stop and get into work mode as a command is about to come, he did really well with this springing up and await the next command which the trainer used “place” today to give him a nice and easy target to head to. He seriously smashed this today and really impressed the trainer with ability to switch on and off and in between cuddle and work mode.||Focus: Manners||B|
|Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building)||Comment: To end on a big high today the trainer took Knox to the confidence course and ran him through this! The objective today was to get the quickest time around the course as he has done this before so speed was the objective. To start he had to do a slow run through picking up all the extra treats other dogs missed today but once he had done this he was rocketing around the course and even tried to jump over the see-saw bridge at one point! He was zooming and we were able to drain some of his excess energy so he should be nice and tired for the rest of the day!||Focus: Conditioning||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.
