Pickle had a fun day working on some trick training today. He was a bit cheeky throughout his first lesson but quickly engaged and tried his best for his treats.
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!

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Pickle worked on his selfie skill, focusing on fading or his lure. Pickle started the lesson but wanting to follow the lure, but after a bit of repetition we got Pickle to start engaging in the lesson. Once Pickle was engaged, we focused on getting Pickle to continue jumping up on our shoulder without the lure. By the end of the lesson, Pickle was following the hand signal up without a lure.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Pickle went over his skateboard skill, focusing on Duration while on the board. Pickle would hop of the board with his hand signal but would only push it for a second before trying to grab a treat. We focused on lengthening the duration, aiming to get him to push it a certain distance. As we put repetitions into the skill, Pickle stayed staying on longer and longer, pushing the board for up to 5 seconds at a time||Focus: Duration||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Pickle worked on his weave skill in the classroom. Pickle got a bit confused st first, thinking we were doing his Middles skill. This lead to Pickle trying to stand in-between our legs instead of going completely through. We focused on showing Pickle what we were asking if him using a treat to lure him completely through our legs. At this point, Pickle started happily running all the way through our legs when we pointed. We then practiced chaining these together before rewarding him, getting him to make multiple weaves through before getting a treat.||Focus: Foundation||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.
