Murphy was a sweetheart today, trying very hard with all her training. She worked with a trainer she hasn't worked with before, although that didn't stop her from engaging well all day.
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: Murphy went down to our carpark to continue work on her loose lead walking. We added in some drops throughout the lesson as well to continue pushing her skills. Murphy had great engagement at the start of the lesson, sticking right by her trainers side. One we got to the carpark, her engagement stayed wandering a bit. Murphy would stop walking periodically to sniff before returning back to her trainer. Murphy was quick to go into her drop when asked but would want to pop back up. After some repetition we got her engagement back fully on her trainer, with Murphy happier to stay on her drop for longer.||Focus: Obedience||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Murphy practiced her place training using a towel in the classroom. Murphy was a bit confused at first, not staying on the towel when in the skill. After a bit of repetition, Murphy started understanding that the boundaries of the skill apply to the towel aswell, as she started to stay on until her release word.||Focus: Back to Basics||C+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: We made our way outside again on the long line to practice Murphy's recall. Murphy came back a majority of the time, needing a treat to lure her infront of us into the sit as she tended to try run around to the side of us as she came back. After a bit of repetition and a few treats we managed to get her to return to our front and into her sit every time.||Focus: Repetition||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.
