Lexi did fairly well today. She was often distracted by having other dogs in the classroom, but she still performed all her skills nicely.
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: Lexi practiced her ‘loose lead’ skill with drops and dog distractions. We started in the classroom with another dog, and she got distracted quite often and sometimes didn’t drop when asked. After she was able to perform better, her loose lead was then taken outside and the same thing happened again, it took a while for her to drop as she was distracted pretty easily. At the end of this session she was able to drop when commanded, despite the new, outside distractions. We want Lexi to keep progressing with this skill so she is able to drop with however many distractions there are.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: Lexi’s second session was working on her ‘paws up’ skill. To start with, one pod was used and she did excellent. To make things a bit more difficult, we added another pod and encouraged her to put one paw on each. She was a little slow in doing it at first, but by the end of the session she was able to perform the skill properly. However, during this session, she again sometimes got distracted by the other dogs in the classroom, but she was able to re-focus fairly quick. We would like Lexi to keep exceeding in this skill as it is great for her confidence building.||Focus: Confidence||B|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: To finish off, Lexi worked on her ‘middles’ skill from a variety of angles. Although the angles did not phase her, she would often perform the skill without the command. Towards the end of her session, she was more focused and only performed when commanded. In the future we want Lexi to be able to perform middles with a longer distance in between and with more distractions.||Focus: Foundation||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.
