**Unfortunately due to IT issues we are unable to attach any photos sorry!** Mojo was a little superstar again as per usual. We love seeing him and think he would be a good choice for group classes in the near future!
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: Sit||Comment: For his first session we worked on door manners as Mojo can get distracted in doorways. Our focus was on making Mojo sit before opening the door and then requiring him to stay in sit before being released and walking through. Majority of the time Mojo would listen to the sit and stay in it but he did break a few times while the door was being opened. Next time we'd like to see Mojo sit at doors whenever asked and to stay in sit as he isn't far off from this. At home require Mojo to sit at the front door - if he gets up correct him and shut the door again so that he learns that getting up does not get him out any earlier.||Focus: Manners||A|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his second session we worked on Red light/green light for Mojo's drops outside. Mojo did quite well considering all the distractions (being outside, playing with the trainer, plus gardeners mowing the lawn). He listened well to the trainer but did occasionally sit instead of drop when asked. He loved chasing the trainer around and this can be a great way to make drop training more exciting for him as well as preparing him for distracting environments like group classes. At home use play to get him in a highly excited state and then ask for drops - the quicker he drops the quicker the games can start again.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Ring a Bell||Comment: For his last session we worked on Mojo's Bell skill. He did frequently use his nose but we did manage to get him to use his paws a few times. He was very engaged and happy to focus with the bell which is great. Next time we'd like to see Mojo use his paws more on the bell instead of his nose. At home, encourage him to use his paws on objects on the ground.||Focus: Repetition||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.
