Leroy had really good skill retention today from his previous sessions a few weeks ago, this really impressed the trainer as they were able to get straight back into his work
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: Trick Training||Comment: For his first session today he was taken into the classroom and worked on his “ring the bell” skill. This was done as it’s a great way to start the day with some fun and get his brain activated and ready for the rest of the day! He was great today with his loose lead to the classroom, he followed the lead like a champ not making it tight once and following directions like the good boy he is. Inside the classroom he had a very noisy dog as a distraction and while initially a little distracted he was quick to focus back on his training and was soon hitting the bell successfully each time with ease! This was a great first session that has set him up for success for the rest of the day.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For his second session today the trainer worked on Leroy’s “bang bang” skill also known as “play dead”. The objective of the session today was to increase the duration in which Leroy stays in the final position as well as starting to phase out the lure so he does it off the hand gesture. He was great today with this! Not only was he able to increase his duration easily, by the end of the session Leroy was following the hand gesture without a lure as well and was doing it multiple times, this is telling us Leroy is ready for the next step when he comes back to us again and that he loves doing his skills as a dog that enjoys working will make quick progression just like he has today.||Focus: Conditioning||B|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: For his last session today the trainer initially wanted to work on his “car pull” skill however he had worked so good and used the first two session he was just too tired to work on a skill as complex as this so instead the trainer made it easier for him and they did some paws up. They went around the classroom and got Leroy to get his paws up on to everything including the grass patches, the desk, a chair, the couch, ottoman, wobble board and even the trainer themselves! Since he was doing so well he was then taken outside and did paws up on everything he could find outside as well! On top of this he was also doing all of this for minimal rewards and was following the verbal command, this was an awesome way to finish out the day and end on a high note! We can’t wait to have the big man back again soon and we highly recommend you look into joining us for a group class.||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.
