Remi was on his best behaviour today and loved learning his new skills and playing around with a different recall training method. Keep up the great work at home.
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: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his first session, Remi focused on further developing his drop skill while he is calm and showing minimal vocalisation and using external rewards. Remi performed very well, he loves his drop and it is very solid. The trainer noticed when using the external rewards he remained calmer in position, he showed no vocalisation or undesirable behaviours (barking or being silly). Remi’s love for food helps him with the external rewards, he quickly jumps up and goes to the bowl when the trainer used the ‘get it’ command.||Focus: Foundation||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his second session, Remi focused on building his hand luring skills and working on moving his body off slight hand cues. Remi performed well, he is very aware or body language, making him very responsive to small hand cues. The trainer was working on his skill spin using a lure and minimal hand movement. He performed very well, quickly moving around. As the session progressed the trainer's hand movement was reduced as he continued to perform well.||Focus: Obedience||B+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: In his final session, Remi focused on building his recall, working on conditioning him to the ‘come’ command. While conditioning him to the command the trainer said the word ‘come’ while taking a step backwards to reward him with a jackpot. The jackpot helps him to understand that the come cue is of very high value. Remi’s love for food meant he quickly learned that returning to the trainer means he gets all the treats. This is the first step in a three-step process of training recalls under Brents guidance.||Focus: Foundation||B+|

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.
