Pancakes had a good time today working on her skills, working under distraction. We did a mixture of work inside and out for most of her skills to remind her of the foundations as well as to oush the distraction.
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: Place Training||Comment: We took Pancakes outside to work on her place skill. We focused on sending Pancakes to play, using quick repetition. At the start of the lesson, Pancakes happily stepped on and off the bed, although after a few minutes decided she wasn't in the mood for the lesson. We continued with the focus of getting her engagement back on her trainer. Once we got her focus back we continued the lesson. We practiced sending Pancakes to the bed from further and futher away, making it a couple steps back with Pancakes still going onto the bed.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Leave||Comment: Pancakes worked on her leave it skill, using high value treats. Whenever Pancakes would go to take a treat from our hands without her yes marker, we would say "leave it". If she didn't leave it, we would close our hand and give her a "uh uh", although if she did leave it, we would mark yes and give her a treat from the other hand. pancakes would be cheeky, sneaking a treat from our hand every now and then, although leaving them the majority of the time when we asked her to.||Focus: Obedience||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: We worked on Pancakes duration in the skill under distraction, working around another dog in the classroom. We practiced walkinng by the other dog, putting her into a drop when nearby the other dog and keeping her in the skill until the other dog passed. We did repetitions of this, keeping Pancakes in the drop for longer each time. Pancake would go into the drop consistently although taking her time on her way down. pancakes tried getting up from her drop a few times, but after a few reminders she needs to stay in the skill, Pancakes started staying down in her drop until released.||Focus: Duration||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.
