Nala was great today! She worked hard and kept great engagement with the trainer so much so that she was able to work around other dogs for every single one of her sessions!
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!

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For her first session today the trainer worked on Nalas place skill while another dog worked on the classroom. Before entering the classroom the trainer made sure to really engage Nala and made sure her focus was on them, they did this by playing some fun engagement games with her and charging her marker. Once she was nice and focused they took her into the classroom and worked on harnessing her collie energy and channeling into her skills! To do this the trainer would first get her on to place and quickly break her off again and the while increasing the intensity that they were interacting with her. She did great keeping her cool and listening to the “place” command each time! Keeping her busy like this also helped her to keep her focus away from the other dogs in the room and focus on the trainer.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: The trainer wanted to end the day with some fun and so they did what they call a “circuit”. This is when they chain a few trick and obedience skills together to not only test the individual skills but it’s also a fun way to do a few things at once! The trainer linked in the skills spin, twirl, drop, sit, shake and place! The order of which skill was asked for was changed each time to keep the training fresh and fun but before Nala was rewarded she had to do each skill at least once in a sequence. As you can see from her social post on our Instagram today she did not disappoint smashing out these circuits in quick succession getting faster and faster each time!||Focus: Confidence||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.
