Pretzel did so well today, we had fun building his confidence and understanding of his skills.
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."
|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: This session focused on his loose lead walking outside. Pretzel was very keen to get started and was quite distracted initially. We practiced ours turns, rewarding good decisions and engagement. He did improve throughout this session but would loose that focus when he saw another dog or person. Making yourself more exciting and creating distance helps him re-engage! The last few minutes of the session was spent doing some crate training, going in and out before shutting the door in between his sessions.
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: This session was spent doing repetitions on and off place. He is settling much quicker on the bed until released! He was a bit distracted by other happenings in the classroom but we were able to redirect his focus back to us. Again, we spent the last few minutes sending him in and out of the crate before closing the door until his next session.
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)
|Comment: Lastly we had some fun with paws up on the wobble board. Pretzel was a little bit hesitant initially but once he realised it wasn’t too scary he would happily put his front feet on! He did manage to get all four feet on once but it was quite wobbly and he jumped off! Although a bit unusual, he was happy to continue putting his front feet on.
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.
