Mojo did very well with his first 2 sessions today, but got a little distracted in his last one.
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 learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Today to start off Mojo’s day, we worked on his ‘sits’ and ‘drops’ to help prevent his jumping. During his session, Mojo did not jump up on the trainer when entering his kennel to begin his day. We then decided to test Mojo in different situations and see what would make him jump up, but nothing worked. So we pushed his skill, asking for drops in high distracting environments, and he performed really well. If Mojo is jumping on guests at home, try and put him in a controlled position upon arrival and see if this helps, but keep up the great work Mojo!||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Next up, Mojo was introduced to ‘trick and train’. This is where we have a machine that dispenses treats with a remote, if the doggo performs the trick at hand. For Mojo we picked his ‘tug’ trick, where there is a rope and he has to pull it from our hands. At first Mojo was a bit confused with why he would only be rewarded sometimes, but he picked up pretty quickly and would give attention to the rope almost instantly after his treat was dispensed. The next step is to have Mojo mouth the rope and pull, this will be achieved by only rewarding him if he puts it in his mouth.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: We continued on from his previous session, and to begin with Mojo did very well! As more dogs entered the classroom though, he quickly became distracted and loss interest in the tug rope. For the remainder of his session I just focused on his drop duration and not breaking in such a high distracting environment full of dogs, trainers and balls rolling everywhere, and he did very well. In the future we want for Mojo to not let other dogs distract him from his training.||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.
