Lady did well with her training today, however she broke a few times by getting distracted with other dogs in the classroom.
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: Loose lead with drops: Today Lady practiced her inside ‘loose lead’ skill with drops, with dog distractions. She did very well and kept great engagement. She dropped when told and performed quickly, despite the other dog in the room. We want Lady to continue progressing with this skill so we are able to add bigger distractions and test her engagement.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: Lady’s second session was working on her ‘middles’ skill from place. She did very well, but broke her place twice before being called for middles. We want Lady to exceed in middles and not break before commanded as it is an important skill to have if faced with a dangerous situation. We also don't want her to "guess" what skill we want as this could ruin her other skills. (breaking place without being released or commanded something else).||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For Lady’s last session, we finished off with her ‘pick a card’ skill for her trick title. She did very well for the most part of her session and was very focused, however, once there were more dogs in the classroom, she was disengaged and did not perform the skill very well. It was her last session and by then sometimes they can be quite exhausted mentally from the stimulation in the classroom therefore we persisted with the skill and went at her pace.||Focus: Repetition||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.
