|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: During marvels first session he was very overexcited when he first entered the classroom, this could be due to a few factors (storm, new trainer, his love for training made him too excited). This isn’t bad, as we want him to be happy and excited to be in the classroom. But, his behavior was not appropriate. He was vocalizing at other dogs, jumping and pulling on the lead. so for our first session, we focused on settling down, doing a few drops to keep his attention and settle his behavior.
|Skill learnt: Middle Position
|Comment: Marvel showed a very impressive change in his behavior for his second session. He was calm and focused on his trainer, and ready to train. We started middles entering from the back, this was very easy for him so we tried luring him from the front, through the legs and turning around to face the front again. Marvel quickly understood this and was confidently entering from the front. At the end of his session, another dog entered the classroom and marvel struggled to keep focused.
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: For our final session, marvel did even better than his last. We worked on loose lead in the classroom with another dog in the room. He didn’t react to the dog at all, and kept focus on his trainer the whole time. We added some drops into his loose lead to add a bit of difficulty, and he did excellent on every drop - using a hand signal, no lure. Additionally, his auto sits are great, with him never stopping in front of the trainer. to work on this skill further, we can work on increasing the distractions in his environment, like working outside on grass.
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.
