Lee Leewas a little cheeky with the new trainer today but was able to demonstrate an understanding of his skills! The warm weather today day got to him a little bit.

"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 our first training session with Leroy, we focused on his loose lead walking with auto sits. Leroy is able to demonstrate a good loose lead structure but lacked in engagement, possibly due to a new trainer and the warmer weather experienced today. He was a little cheeky with the new trainer as he needed some extra encouragement into his sit position, but has a clear understanding of the skill. Keep up the great work and continue to build the level of distractions.
|Skill learnt: Play
|Comment: Our second training session focused on Leroy’s impulse control through Red Light Green Light. This involved various of Leroy’s skills such as drops and sits, demonstrated on a verbal cue. We completed this skill in the playpen area. Despite the trainer demonstrating high level energy, Leroy showed minimal interest in any toys, treats or playful arousal. He was quite low energy and slow with his movements, but has a clear, strong understanding of his skills. Due to the minimal interest shown in the high arousal from the trainer, the impulse control could not be fully assessed. This may have been be due to the warmer weather today or the stimulating environment around him. Is there anything that creates a strong arousal with Leroy at home that we could try?
|Skill learnt: Middle Position
|Comment: The final session for today worked on Leroy’s middles skill. Leroy understands the foundations of the skill, but required a hand lure to guide him into the correct position. The use of a food reward provided positive reinforcement to encourage Leroy. This may be due to the warmer weather and the unfamiliarity of a new trainer. Practice this skill at home to build it further.
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.
