Koby smashed his session out today! Sometimes rainy weather can throw a dogs day off, hwoever it seemed to have the opposite effect on Koby really jazzing him up for the day! We highly recommend having a look at our basic obedience classes starting next year as this would be a great next step for Koby!
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."
|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: For his first session today the trainer took Koby for a loose lead walk today but with a bit of a twist! It was early enough that it was raining heavily but just spitting so the trainer took Koby for a big walk around the property in the spitting rain! Doing walks in different situations like this helps proof Koby to a multitude of different scenarios you may encounter when out on a walk including getting rained on! He really actually loves the rain and was bouncing around during his walk today! Consider doing some training in the back yard next time there is some rain about, you may get a little wet however the experience you’ll give Koby far out weighs you getting a little soaked!
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: For his next session today the trainer worked on Koby’s drop skill with a focus on both duration and distractions. His duration is coming along great! It helps if you train this after he has done another session that is a bit physical like loose lead walking as this will encourage him to lie down and stay in one spot to rest a little more, if we try do it when he has all his energy he will find it much harder to do. Due to this strategy he was able to really increase his duration in his drops today but is still struggling a bit with fast moving distractions, but this is understandable as he is still just a puppy and wants to play! With consistency and dedication these behaviours can be changed.
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: For his last session today he worked on his place skills out in the rain again! Like we mentioned earlier training in different environments like this really helps prepare Koby for anything the world can throw at him and is the starting to doing some thunder desensitisation as well. He did really well with this, he seems to really enjoy working in the rain and was very animated and enthusiastically this session. He was sent back and forth between two places beds out on the grass, he did really well following each command with excitement! He smashed this last session out and the trainer was so happy with his progress! We can’t wait to have Koby back again and we highly recommend having a look at our basic obedience classes coming up next year! These would be a great next step for Koby as he continues his training journey both with us and at home.
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.
