Opal had so much fun today! She had a great time over on the big oval today but did struggle a little with her drops so keep working on her skills at home.
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: Opal was so happy to be back doing training! We took her next door to the Pony Club oval to work on her loose lead skill. Opal did really well with this though she did have a tendency to walk ahead in front of the trainer. She only had a few small moments of pulling but walked quite happily otherwise. Good job Opal!
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: We continued on the Pony Club oval for her second session with a focus on fun (climbing objects) and place on the jump course obstacles. Opal did really well with these, she loves to climb and explore new things and happily held place on the big tire. She did struggle a little with her drops in this environment so we will work a bit on those next session.
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: For her last session we worked a little bit on her drop skill. Opal was very energetic coming out of the kennels and was pulling quite a bit so it did take some time to get her focus back on training (I think she thought she was going home!). We were able to get a few drops but she would often only go as far as a bow and the trainer would have to tap her butt to remind her that needs to go down too. Going over the basics again in future Dayschools will help get this skill back up to where it normally is.
|Focus: Back to Basics
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.
