Major had an amazing day with us today, since we knew he was going home the trainer made sure to fill the day with fun and really test him on his skills to send him home in a positive attitude towards his training!
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!

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his first session today the trainer noticed he had a little extra energy today than the other days so wanted to capitalise on this and worked his loose lead first. The criteria is this session was mostly keeping majors engagement, to help test this the trainer made sure to walk around lots of distractions including other dogs and new people. A few times he did get to the end of the lead however with the turn technique the trainer was easily able to bring him back. They finished with a. Little bit of play with a a tug toy in the classroom which major loved!||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For his second session today major was worked on his place skill. He was a little distracted by another dog in the classroom during this session so the trainer used this to their advantage and tested his distractions! Initially he did get off the bed a few times wanting to go meet the other dog but with some guidance from the trainer he was able to understand the rules the trainer was putting down for him to follow and started doing great with his place! He was able to get on and off and once again the trainer was able to increase the distance they were able to send him to place.||Focus: Distance||B|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: For his last session today the trainer worked on his recall inside the classroom. For todays session they wanted to make sure that Major was sitting at the end of the skill and paying attention to the trainer, an important factor if doing recall for safety reasons, we want him to come back to us but then still be listening to us as well. To start he did need the lure to help him with this but he was quick to phase this out today and progress. He is returning to the trainer quickly and happily as well, this is fantastic because if the trainer can make them the most interesting and fun thing around recall will be super easy with him! He finished the day with a little more constructed play as not only is this fun it can be fantastic for impulse control as well.||Focus: Distance||C+|
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.
