Miro had some fun today working on his skills in the classroom. We focused on his engagement while working around other dogs as a way to increase the level of distraction as he has a good foundation for each of his basic obedience skills. Miro was a sweetheart throughout his training sessions, loving a chest scratch in between lessons.
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: Place Training||Comment: Miro made his way down to the classroom working on his manners as we went. Miro came in with low engagement, focusing on the other dogs in the room. We did some quick repetitions of his place skill to get him engaged and to have some fun. Miro quickly started to focus on his trainer, still watching the other dogs in the room periodically but quickly recovering and giving his attention to the skill again. He stepped off the bed before his release every now and then but as the lesson went on he started to stay in the skill, waiting for his release and a treat.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Miro continued in the classroom nearby other dogs being trained working on his drop skill. Miro was a bit cheeky, not wanting to go down into the skill but after a bit of repetition he started dropping consistently when asked. He spent less time this lesson focusing on the other dogs, engaging more with his trainer. He got up before his release word a few times but with a quick reminder would go back down into the skill quickly. By the end of the lesson, Miro was listening well, going in and out of his place when instructed.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Miro ended his day with his loose lead. Miro pulled ahead quite a bit this lesson, so we put some work into the fundamentals inside the classroom. After a bit of time, Miro started to walk with his trainer, although pulling every now and then still. We finished by going outside in the shade and putting in some repetition. Once outside, Miro lost engagement again, although finishing strong, starting to walk by his trainer again.||Focus: Repetition||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.
