Molly did really well today, she showed some good progress in her skills. We worked lots on settling and redirecting unwanted behaviours.
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: Drop/ Down||Comment: For her first session today Molly worked on her drop skill. Molly follows a lure really well but this makes it hard to move the treat away once in position. We worked on slowly removing the lure once she was in position, this means she needs to stay in a drop as the hand moves away. We were able to bring our hand to our side for a couple seconds before releasing her. Molly is showing better knowledge of this skill, keep working on that duration and moving your hand away.||Focus: Duration||C+|
|Skill learnt: Sit||Comment: For her second session today Molly worked on not jumping on the trainer. For this we wanted her to offer alternative behaviours like a sit. To do this we would ignore any attempt she made at jumping when she got bored/frustrated. Once she stopped jumping and sat down we marked “yes” and rewarded her. This can take a while for them to figure out if they have been jumping for a while but as Molly will only get bigger it’s important to get on top of this as soon as possible. If she is jumping when she is excited just ignore it as much as possible and reward her immediately when she stops!||Focus: Manners||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Mollys last session today was focused on her place skill. We worked on getting her to settle after having a play with the trainer. Molly really loved playing around with the trainer but she still listened when they said “place”. She would plonk herself straight on the bed and wait for her treat. It’s good to do this kind of training because he helps them build an off switch. Keep practicing this one at home, playing and then asking for a skill!||Focus: Distraction||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.
