Poppy was a little off today, not focusing or showing engagement with her trainer. With engagement games she would redirect her focus well.
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: Trick Training||Comment: In her first session, Poppy focused on further developing his skill 'paws up' on individual pods. Poppy was very distracted during this session, she struggled to engage with her trainer and follow a lure. As the session progressed she slowly began to redirect her focus and follow a lure onto the pods. Once engaged she performed well, she can struggle to place both paws on different pods but with patients she figured it out quickly.||Focus: Foundation||D+|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In her second session, Poppy focused on building engagement with her trainer using a variety of engagement games, including recall, catch treats and rewarding eye contact. Using these methods Poppy quickly began to engage with her trainer and perform food recalls (from short distance).||Focus: Conditioning||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her final session, Poppy focused on further developing her skill 'drop' under high distractions. Poppy was challenged with remaining in drop under high distractions. As well as asking Poppy to drop when playing tug. Poppy performed well, she initially struggled to drop when playing, but a the session progressed she began to perform well.||Focus: Distraction||B|
We recommend your next step should be…

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.
