Overall Marie had a great session today. She is such a quick learner and picks things up extremely fast. I thought we could work on some already established skills to start, her recall is amazing. We then tried something more challenging (so I thought) but she picked that up so quickly too! I love training Marie because the sky is the limit with a dog like her.
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: Recall||Comment: Marie did a fantastic job recalling off distractions today. We encouraged her to sniff the grass and disengage from the handler, so we could further proof her recall in a controlled environment.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: We worked on canine conditioning. Using equipment she has to stand on. She perfected this quite easily, so we then tried to teach her backend awareness. Again she picked this up rather quickly. Marie is very good at learning and a master of many skills.||Focus: Conditioning||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: We worked on “hold” with a carrot toy. We worked on duration today as she has the initial behaviour of biting the toy down pact. In the future I’d like to work on duration further. Maybe even work in a retrieve command as well as hold.||Focus: Duration||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.
