Maverick was excited to be back training today and performed very well.
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: In his first session, Maverick focused on further developing his 'loose lead walking ' with repetitions under distraction (training outside). We focused on this skill proof to his loose lead walking and build engagement. Mav struggled to engage with his trainer in the high distracting environment, he displayed challenging behaviours such as pulling. The trainer focused on building his engagement, marking with 'yes' when he looked at the trainer. This helped Mav redirect his focus and show an increase in engagement. Next time we would like to see Mav show more engagement with his trainer. We suggest continuing to practice this at home.||Focus: Back to Basics||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Mav focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with repetition under distractions (greetings). Mac performed well, he broke drop once but with some guidance he began to hold it well. Once engaged Mav did not break drop despite the trainer approaching while throwing balls, in wheelchair, on knees and many more strange ways. The trainers are very impressed with how far he has come with his drops. Next time we would like him to remain in drop despite the distractions. We suggest continuing working on this at home, push him under high distractions and greetings to hep reduce his jumping.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: In his last session, Mav focused on further developing his recall with his skill 'middle'. Middle is a great skill to help introduce Mav to a recall. Mav performed very well, he still requires a lure, however this was quickly faded throughout the session, and the trainer began to label the skill 'middle'. Although he was performing very well he can become distracted easily by the environment, as his skill progresses he will engage more with his handler. Next time the trainer would like to see Mav remain engage for the whole session. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Back to Basics||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.
