Mr Ozzie had so much fun training today, we let him have a good sniff around so he could get used to the new environment then it was straight into training!
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: HIs first session we focused on his downs in the classroom then finished up outside. Ozzie showed some really good engagement with his trainer, only breaking position a couple times. When reminded with his ‘uh uh’ he went straight back into position. While outside we were able to drop the lead and create lots of distance (in the fenced off training yard). Ozzie did so well in here, coming back to the trainer once being released for his treat! Keep working on his duration and distractions, make sure you are being firm with him and not letting him get away with cheeky behaviours.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: This session was all about his loose lead walking outside. We worked around the handy-man John for added distraction. Ozzie was a little bit distracted by him but after a few minutes he had almost forgotten he was there! Its important to find that ‘critical distance’ where Ozzie feels comfortable with the person there but can still focus on you! Ozzie only pulled a couple times this session, mostly when he found a really good smell. We were able to redirect his focus easily back to the trainer and continue walking.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Lastly Mr Ozzie worked on some place training and play! Ozzie has a really solid place skill so make sure to use that when around triggers. Each time we released Ozzie from place we would really razz him up, get him chasing and tugging on a toy. Then we would send him back to place to calm down. The idea of this is to bring high energy levels up then straight back down! He did really well with this and seemed to enjoy it!||Focus: Distraction||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.
