Molly was a little nervous to start off with, but once she got the cuddles, she performed well.
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: Molly began with some ‘loose lead’ walking in the classroom, also with added drops to test her engagement. She did fairly well and dropped when told, but once another dog started barking in the classroom, she got nervous and did not want to move. The trainer would then take the time to condition her to the dog and classroom again until she was comfortable and confident to resume her training. We would like for Molly to become more confident in the classroom and with other dogs, so with the use of her reward marker, treats and cuddles, we aim for her to be more comfortable. Keep up the good work at home!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: Next up, Molly practiced her ‘paws up’ skill inside the classroom. She was much more confident this session as there was a quieter dog in the room, helping Molly feel more comfortable, which is great! We got a few good run throughs of this skill until she lost interest. The remainder of her session was focused on her drop duration and more conditioning as different dogs entered the room. So proud of how brave you were Miss Molly!||Focus: Confidence||B|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: To finish up, Molly practiced her ‘recall’ skill outside on a long line. Molly did so well! There were so many interesting trees and bushes she wanted to investigate, but when her name was called she would come running straight back majority of the time! There were a few times her non-reward marker “ah ah” was used, but she would understand she is not quite doing the right thing and would be back at the trainers feet in seconds. Keep up the great work, slowly start introducing some higher distractions; food, toys etc. and test her engagement and listening even more!||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.
