Remi was very excited to be back at training and did very well considering he was with a new trainer.
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: Remi's trainers were teaching new trainers and thought it would be great for his conditioning with new people. Remi displayed no issues being around the new trainer but he did check in with his known trainers to begin with. What a great step for Remi! The first skill they worked on was the 'backwards hug'. Remi thought this trick was amazing to begin with as he used the opportunity for cuddles and smooches. To help with his impulse control the trainer commanded a drop before luring him onto her shoulder. By doing so Remi was more controlled and had better guidance with the task at hand. No verbal cue was added, they just focused on duration of his 'backwards hug'. VERY cute skill!||Focus: Duration||B|
|Skill learnt: Sit||Comment: The trainers have noticed that occasionally Remi will try to predict cues or not follow through with them correctly. Sit is one that he struggled with (he will either drop or sit and then go into a drop). The trainers are mindful that it could be a less comfortable position for Remi due to his previous leg issues but wanted to make sure he understood and complied with the command (not going into a drop). We revisited the basics to cement the foundations of his sit which he struggled at the beginning but quickly progressed with. It would be good to challenge Remi with randomising his skills at home. Jumble it up from sit, drop, spin, middle, place, etc.||Focus: Back to Basics||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Due to the weather most training was performed inside today. The trainer made use of the cattery with Remi's loose lead walking and encourage engagement when passing by distractions. He had full engagement with the trainer so he was challenged by asking the random sit or drop during this session.||Focus: Distraction||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.
