We were able to push some of Murphy's skills today and start on a new trick! She always loves her training and we love seeing her for Dayschools!
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."
|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: For her first session we took Murphy next door to work on her loose lead skill on the Pony Club oval. Murphy was a bit distracted wanting to move ahead a bit and sniffing but otherwise walked quite well. We practiced going over a few jumps too - she was a little unsure but then happy to follow a lure over them!
|Skill learnt: Conditioning
|Comment: For her second session we worked on door manners. If in a control position like drop or sit she had no issues waiting to be released before moving through a door so we quickly moved to door manners without putting her in a skill first. This was a little trickier for her and required her to stop and stay stopped at the doorway when the trainer stopped and only moving through with "free". She got it most times but did have a few reps where she forgot to stop with the trainer so keep working on this. Practicing auto sits on walks is also a great way to practice this!
|Skill learnt: Trick Training
|Comment: For her third session we worked Murphy's brain with an intro to the quoits skill. Murphy hasn't quite grasped the basics of this just yet - she touched the ring several times but hasn't quite figured out the picking up part. Shaping skills are a great way to provide mental enrichment in Murphy's stay and this skill is a great way to progress with her learning during Dayschools!
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.
