Ollie did a great job today but does need some more work on his emergency drop skills. His loose lead is really improving though!
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: For his first session we started off with red light green light drops while he was still full of energy. At the beginning of the session Ollie did really well with this! He dropped each time he was asked even mid play. As the session progressed and he got more excitable he did start to take longer to go into drop or would only do it when told "uh-uh". Doing some extra quicker reps did help with this but it will need some more work. We did also push his drop skill with impulse control by waving the toy around and having him have to stay in drop while the trainer jumped around. He broke quite a bit at the start but did start to improve. At home work on his drop skill with toys and continue working on having him go into drops when getting excitable.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his second session we took Ollie outside to work on his loose lead skill. He only needed a few reminders to walk besides the trainer but was otherwise great with his loose lead! We also had him practice his spins and drops while walking. His spins were very tight but he did struggle with his emergency drops if the trainer kept walking (would only do it if the trainer stopped). Keep working on these skills while working to keep him engaged with you.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his final session we worked on emergency drops with Ollie as he had struggled with it during his loose lead session. He did do a better job this session and was dropping (slowly though) while the trainer kept walking. Practice having him drop while walking, using lures a few times first if needed to help him out.||Focus: Distraction||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.
