Moose smashed it today, he worked with a new trainer today (male) and was not only well behaved but had a great drive for training today!
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: For his first session today the trainer wanted to take Moose on a loose lead walk with a focus on engagement as he had never worked with this trainer today (male trainer) and they wanted to make sure they had a good bond. The trainer was very impressed with Moose’s loose lead walking today, initially he was a little excited but he was very easy to redirect back into his training and before they were even out of accomodation he was right back walking nicely with the trainer. Not only did he walk great the trainer was also able to get him to do sits and drops while on the walk and he even remained in his drop while the trainer had a conversation about how gorgeous Moose is with the groundsman and he held his drop the entire time! He smashed this first session.||Focus: Manners||B|
|Skill learnt: Desensitisation||Comment: (Greetings) For his next session the trainer worked on getting Moose’s manners better with his greetings. To help with this the trainer worked on his drop skill especially doing it around people and staying in the drop around people as well. He started off a bit energetic and wanting to get up and say hello, but with the help of his “uh-uh” marker the trainer was able to quickly get him to realise that if he stays in a drop he will be rewarded. While we are working on flaming moose during greetings it’s importance to point out that he is a puppy and will go off the energy of those approaching him a lot of the time, it’s beneficial to his training if we advocate for moose when meeting people and just ask them to approach slowly and with low energy in order to set noise up for the best success possible, it’s too hard for him ti keep calm when the person approaching is full of beans!||Focus: Manners||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For his last session today the trainer worked on some impulse control using red light green light play and the place skill. He worked well with this today, the trainer started off using a tug toy and initiating play and Moose was easily engaged. However since it was the last session he started to run out of steam quickly so the trainer did some trick training to finish up. Moose practised roll over but couldn’t quite get all the way over but he is so close! So they ended with some shake, which he did great with.||Focus: Manners||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.
