Remi did so well in his training today! He was so enthusiastic and was quite demanding for treats when he thought he did a good job! We love seeing his confidence grow each time he is here.
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: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: For his first session we revisited Remi's paws up skill. He really seems to be enjoying this skill, he happily followed a pointed finger onto the objects and often has great duration staying on them. We have been using the verbal cue of "paws up" which he is working well with. His tail was wagging the whole way through this session and he has gained good confidence from this skill. Next time we'd like to continue work on him doing paws up on different objects so that the skill is very generalised. At home use minimal luring and mostly just use "paws up" and point to the objects where possible to help him build this skill.||Focus: Repetition||A|
|Skill learnt: Ring a Bell||Comment: For his second session we worked on his button press skill but with a bell this time. Remi took no time at all to understand what was required with the bell and even progressed to being able to be sent to the bell from a distance which is fantastic progress! He enjoys the challenge of this skill though can get frustrated when he is not rewarded for using his nose. Next time we'd like to label this skill as he is doing it very frequently now. At home practice having him use his paws to interact with objects.||Focus: Repetition||B+|
|Skill learnt: Crate Training||Comment: For his last skill we worked on Remi's drops with duration as he had struggled to stay in drop a few times during the day. Remi was mostly good though he did pop up early a few times or would raise his front half into a semi-drop which after an "uh-uh" he would go back done into a full drop. His duration. Did get better over the session so this is something to just work on every now and then to make sure the skill stays tight. Next time we'd like to push his drop skill with some more distractions to help proof it. At home slowly increase his durations in drop and don't let him get away with cheeky half drops.||Focus: Duration||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.
