It was great to have Mr Motley back training today. He is such a sweet boy who loves his training and pats. We hope to see him again soon.
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: In his first session, Motley focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead walking' with repetitions under distractions. We focused on this skill to build his engagement and reduce his challenging behaviour of pulling. This session was completed outside while another dog trained in proximity. Motley initially struggled to engage with his trainer while the other dog was close to him. As the dog moved further away, he slowly began to engage with his trainer and stop pulling. Although distracted by the other dog, Motley showed no signs of reactivity.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his second season, Motley focused on further developing his skill 'place' with repetitions under distractions. We focused on this skill to build his impulse control and relaxation around other dogs. Motley initially required a lure to go onto the bed, this was quickly faded to a hand signal. While on place Motley initially struggle to hold duration and required lots of treats to remain on the bed. As the session progressed this was reduced as the trainer began to also work on distance. We suggest continuing to practise this skill a home.||Focus: Foundation||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final session, Motley focused on learning the new skill 'button’ with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to build engagement with his trainer while around other dogs. Motley was initially hesitant to interact with the button, but with some guidance and treats from his trainer he quickly began to investigate and touch the button. He successfully pressed the button several times throughout this session. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home to build engagement and have fun.||Focus: Foundation||C|

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.
