Louie did well today working with a trainer he doesn't quite know that well. Louie was distracted through his first lessons, but as we continued working, Louie started engaging with his trainer and having some fun.
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: Louie worked on his loose lead walking, focusing on engagement with his trainer. At first, Louie was completely unengaged on the task. We did a bit of play to get Louie involved, which helped get him to pay attention to the task. As we continued walking, Louie walked ahead of the trainer slightly, although staying on a loose lead. After a bit of walking, Louie started to loose his engagement again. We finished strong, making our way back with him walking right by our side||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Louie came down into the classroom to work on some Red light, green light. Louie found his engagement challenging this lesson, focusing on another trainer throughout the lesson. Although he had very little engagement, Louie still hopped on and off the bed when asked, although showing little interest in the tug toy. Louie stepped off the bed a few times throughout the lesson before his release but would quickly hop back on when reminded.||Focus: Conditioning||C|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: Louie went over his place skill in the classroom to have some fun, looking to build a bond between him and his trainer. Louie was a bit distracted as the lesson started and after some engagement games he started to focus on his trainer. We used some quick repetitions to build some excitement, getting Louie to put his paws up on a range of objects throughout the room. As we went, Louie got quicker, happily jumping up on each object as we got to the end of the lesson.||Focus: Confidence||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.
