Remi has some work to do and I’d love to get her to where we think he can.
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: Place Training||Comment: In Remi’s first session we trained impulse with dogs. This session we had him on “place” while another dog was in training every time he would look at another dog we would reward, showing him it’s okay. He wasn’t taking treats so his reward was “yes” and a pat. Remi is a nervous dog so having him on place is good to settle him down. With more practice around other dogs he will get more comfortable. In his next session I would like to try this again and see if he will take treats. Training this at home is a must maybe do it out the front of your house where other dogs walk by but not to close to the walk way, put him on place by saying “place” if he doesn’t go correct him by luring his nose towards the bed or tugging his lead towards the bed. Everytime a dog walks past reward him if he doesn’t get off “place” with the word “yes” and food if he takes it.||Focus: Repetition||C|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In Remi’s second session we trained, conditioning. This week the doggies attended their first art class with the trainers. This involved a session full of enrichment and fun, stimulating the dogs mentally, as well as using the opportunity to condition the environment and make something beautiful to take home.||Focus: Confidence||B+|
|Skill learnt: Exposure||Comment: In Remi’s third session we trained place with distractions. We had other dogs in training he was distracted with other dogs and wouldn’t take good or wouldn’t do anything I’d ask so I sent him to place where he is relaxed and everytime he looked at another dog I would reward. He kept breaking from place so it was a simple lure of the nose back and using the word “nah ah”. Remi has along way to go when coming to other dogs but I know Remi will be great with a bit more confidence. Next session I will be training this one of our priorities is to get him used of other dogs. Training this at home like I said in the first report tray out the front of your house if he goes to break say “nah ah” and pull his lead back to the bed, when I dog walks past reward him if he doesn’t get of the bed by saying “yes” and food if he will take it.||Focus: Repetition||C|
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.
