Lola was such a good girl for her first day! She was very sweet and loved getting tummy scratches from her trainer!
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."
|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: Lola was a little nervous when collecting but was then quite happy to come out with the trainer. We worked her loose lead in the classroom around other dogs and people to start off with - she had great engagement with this and besides a quick look at people or dogs moving around she stayed focused on the trainer. As she was doing so well we continued her loose lead outside and on the grass. She was a little distracted on the grass but settled quickly and did a great job!
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: For her second session we worked on the place skill in the classroom around other people and dogs. Again, she wasn't very fazed about the other people and dogs and even happily went up to say hello to the other trainer. For her place she didn't hold it very long at the start but after a few reps of leading her back on each time she got off early she was able to build her duration. By the end the trainer was able to walk to the end of the lead and start adding a little bit of energy to their movements with her staying on the bed. Keep building this skill at home!
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: Lola was getting more confident by this session and did have some quick barks at people coming in but was able to be redirected into doing her skills. We worked on her drop this session alongside conditioning and handling to get her confident in the room and with the trainer. Lola did well luring into the drop but would pop up quite quickly so we worked on building duration. She was really good with the handling and we even got her to do some roll overs!
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.
