|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: For her first session today the trainer wanted to get Lilli out of her shell and ready for the day ahead. To do this they took her around the property for a loose lead walk. While this was to boost her confidence the trainer still worked on her loose lead walking and had strict criteria she had to meet in order to be rewarded. Initially she was a little hesitant inside accomodation but as soon as she was outside she started to do great! She was walked around the entire property and even walked near the groundsmen as they did some work! She was also taking treats almost straight away, another sign she is getting comfortable with both the trainer and the location! They did notice that she did seem to like the wet food reward (fritz) and seems to prefer our kibble! If you have a treat at home she rarely gets to have and she loves please provide some as if we can activate her drive with food it will make progress much faster.
|Skill learnt: Crate Training
|Comment: For her second session today the trainer worked on her crate training. The objective today was to get Lilly starting to enter the crate all on her own with any enticement from the trainer. She smashed this session today, she only needed to be lured into the crate once before the frisbee was able to point at the crate and she would enter! It’s important to note the trainer is using a larger crate to set her up for as much success as possible
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: For her final session today the trainer worked on her place skill. There was a specific focus on sending her to the place bed today and making sure she understands the verbal command as well. Like her other sessions she did really well with this today, she was able to be sent to place at a short distance but it was longer than her last session! They wanted to end when she ran back and almost jumped onto the place bed as it was a big positive to end on and this helps retain the skill in the dogs memory. To end the day the trainer the. Took her for some exposure by walking her through accomodation near the other dogs, she did great this session and obviously more confident than when she started the day which is awesome to see!
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.
