Mila did well today with her basic skills, I think focusing these skills around distractions is perfect for her because she’s only young you want the basics to be perfect before moving on
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 Milas first session we trained Loose lead walking. We did this skill outside in the car park, mila does pretty well with her loose lead walking. We always want to set our dogs up for success not failure, so if we have to use less distractions or what not then that’s what we have to do, we slowly have to work our way up to bigger distractions. She’s only young still but she wasn’t pulling on the lead at all, when ever she’s look up at me I would reward with ‘yes’ and treat. Should be proud of her Loose lead walking is hard skill for dogs to learn and she did great.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her second session we trained drops with dog distractions, she’s not to bad once she’s in her drops it’s just getting her to engage to listen when being told to drop. Lots of practice will do her good, she didn’t take mum notice at the other dog she barked once but that was it which was great for her. We will keep practicing this skill progressing her duration in the drop position as well.||Focus: Duration||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Mila’s last session we trained place outside, she’s not to bad on place we trained this skill outside near the dogs in the kennels and there were sheep on the far hill as well, at first she was barking growling at the sheep and kept getting of place, being stern with her and saying ‘agh ah’ if she would get of place and lead pressure back into place, this shows her that’s she’s not doing what we’re asking if her. If she would bark would also say ‘agh ah’ once she stopped barking I would then reward what ‘yes’ and treats. Not letting her get away with being naughty but also when she’s doing something right making sure we reward for the right behaviour. After awhile she calmed down would bark every now and then but she did end up laying down on place which was perfect.||Focus: Distraction||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.
