Oli had some fun back training today. It took him a lesson to warm up but once he was back in the swing of his training, he did very well.
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: Drop/ Down||Comment: Oli worked on his emergency drops in the classroom. We practiced done for manners on our way down as Oli was trying to barge his way through. One down in the classroom, we got started on the skill. Oli was very quick to do down into the skill, although finding his loose lead walking and duration in the skill more challenging. We put some repetitions in to the skill, focusing on Duration in the skill. Once Oli was happily walking by his trainer's side, staying down in the skill when asked we then started performing some quick repetitions to test Oli. Oli finished the lesson strong, happily completing the skill.||Focus: Obedience||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Oli and his trainer made their way outside with the long lead to practice Oli’s recall. Once outside, Oli was quickly making his way back each time he was called, so we made our way into one of our paddocks to further test Oli. Once in the paddock, all the smells started getting Oli’s attention, with Oli still coming back each time but taking a few seconds each time he found a smell he wanted to sniff rather than competition the skill. As we put more repetition in to the skill, Oli started to come back immediately again.||Focus: Distance||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Oli finished off by learning a new skill "weave". The weave skill is where we get Oli to start weaving between our legs as we walk forwards. We do this by using a treat to lure Oli between our legs and around. We then mark yes and pay a treat before continuing again on the other side the same method. Oli was a bit confused at first, trying to go into his middles skill. With some repetition, Oli started following the treat through each time, staying to understand the basics of the skill.||Focus: Foundation||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.
