We think Ruby may have been tired from her busy week with us! She wasn't as engaged as usual and spent her time in between sessions snoozing in her crate. She did still love her cuddles but may have also been full from her breakfast.
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: Conditioning||Comment: For her first session Ruby was quite confident coming out of the kennel with a new trainer. She was a bit shy again in the classroom and didn't want to take treats so we spent time conditioning her to the environment and to touch. She enjoyed the pats and even came up to give the trainer a kiss so her confidence is starting to build which is great!||Focus: Conditioning||X|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For her second session we worked a bit on place to help Ruby settle. She still wasn't much interested in treats so we used attention and cuddles as rewards. She did break quite a bit on her own so the focus was on duration and having her stay on until released. She did do better throughout the session though this does need more work.||Focus: Duration||C|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: For her last session we attempted working on her paws up skill. Ruby almost ate some treats but dropped them back out of her mouth so she may not have been very hungry (she did get fed in the morning in the kennels). She came up for cuddles a lot instead of going onto the balance cushion so just didn't seem very engaged today. Use this skill and other trick skills to build her confidence further.||Focus: Foundation||X|

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.
