|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: Mr Louie was VERY excited to get started and struggled to settle when leaving his accomodation and the building. We utilised his drops to regain some focus and then practiced loose lead up and down the corridor. Once he settled we were able to progress outside and practice some loose lead in the carpark. He was quite sassy today and quite vocal, so we didn’t use the tug toy just yet. We wanted him in a better mindset before we brought the toy out.
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: We worked on his drops around another dog and trainer duo. He listened to the trainer well doing what we asked, but his engagement wasn’t 100%. We found that doing quick repetitions of drop helped him focus a bit more on the trainer rather than his surroundings.
|Skill learnt: Play
|Comment: For his last session he was much more focused and in a better mindset so we practiced “get it,” “out” and place. He was so ready for this session, he responded nicely to each cue, only forgetting to let go once when we said “out” but a good “uh uh” was enough to remind him. He did really well, he even ignored a dog walking past since he was so fixated on the tug toy!
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.
