Mav did really good work today. He had good focus but just needs a little tidying of some skills.
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: For his first session we worked on loose lead in the classroom as Mav was quite distracted. After a few laps his focus improved a lot and he was keeping good engagement with the trainer. We added some drops which he did well with though he did do a few sits and had to be marked with “uh-uh” before he fully dropped. For the last few minutes we moved into the cattery where he did a great job with his drops even with bird and cat distractions.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: For his second session we continued work on Mav’s middles skill. For the start we continued with holding a treat in between the legs to help lure him but by the end of the session we were just using the verbal cue and a hand signal. It took him a few goes to find the right position (would end up too far back) but this improved as the session progressed. He is starting to get really good foundations of this skill and we will be looking to progress him to the next step now.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his last session we worked on some red light/green light drops. Mav wasn’t super keen on the tug toy so we moved to physical play which he enjoyed better. He did drop really well when asked and at the end of the session was even dropping unprompted as soon as play stopped.||Focus: Distraction||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.
