Poppy can still be easily distracted outside when walking but did make some progress on this today. We'd like to continue with this next time to help her with her reactivity.
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: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For her first session we worked on Poppy's loose lead outside to work on her distraction level. On the grass Poppy was very distracted and kept her nose to the ground. She did better in the carpark but there was not a lot of traffic going on to work as a high level of distraction. The focus was to keep her next to the trainer as she often walks a bit ahead and she did improve slightly with this over time.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: As some cars started arriving just as we finished the previous session we continued straight into another loose lead session in the carpark. Poppy was quite good at staying in a drop while the strangers walked past and kept decent focus while walking. She did react a bit to the small dogs in the house yard so we spent a few laps getting her to walk nicely past them - by the end she was able to walk quite close by and ignoring them. Next time we'd like to have Poppy work in a more distracting environment with other dogs to help woke on her reactivity.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For her last session we worked on drops in the classroom while around another dog. Poppy did really well with this and listened to all drop commands and didn't react negatively to the other dog. She even did some great drops while jogging and was very quick into them which was great. Next time we'd like to have her drop outside around other dogs to help simulate a group class environment.||Focus: Distraction||A|
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.
