Rupert was excited to get back to training today!
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: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Rupert was excited when the trainer collected him so we started with his loose lead walking around dogs. He did not display any reactivity towards dogs that ignored him however did display reactivity towards dogs that were focused on him or reactive towards him. The trainer worked on his response to these dogs and rewarded heavily when ignoring them on lead.||Focus: Conditioning||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Rupert has a good understanding of 'down' but lacked duration and impulse control. He has shown that he lacks confidence in unfamiliar environments or environments with higher distractions so the main focus was encouraging him to go through when commanded to down and remain in position until released. At home work on building his duration through small sessions during the day, for example getting him to down for 1 minute before being let inside.||Focus: Duration||C+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: Within the distracting environment Rupert easily lost focus and lacked confidence. To build on his engagement and recall we started repetitions with low distractions in the classroom and built it further. He was able to recall away from 1 dog but struggled with more nearby. Recall and a strong Down skill will be an important skill for him to develop for him to return to Jame Farm Days. At this stage he is not ready to rejoin Jame Farm.||Focus: Distraction||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.
