Sampson did get a bit distracted during some of his sessions today but he is getting better at refocusing onto the trainer.
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: For his first session we took Sampson out into the carpark to work on his loose lead skill. Sampson was quite distracted at the start but after a couple of minutes he slowed down and started walking really nicely next to the trainer. Without added distractions he does really well outside but as soon as other people or dogs come into view he does start pulling. Continuing to work with Sampson outside with low level distractions will help him on the way to being able to walk nicely around other people and dogs.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his second session we worked on his drop skill to help with his jumping and impulse control. Sampson was a bit distracted in the classroom with two other high energy dogs so we mainly focused on his duration as he kept breaking after a short time. As the session progressed he did get better and was holding his drop for longer. Keep building his duration at home so that he is better prepared for the distractions of the classroom.||Focus: Duration||B|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: For his last session we worked on recall outside on a long line. At the start Sampson was quite good at returning to the trainer so we focused on tidying up the skill by having him finish sitting in front of the trainer (as he would occasionally run a bit past). After several recalls he did start getting silly with the skill and started jumping around as well as playing and tugging on the lead. Putting him in a drop was the only way to get him to refocus. Due to this behaviour we finished off the session doing loose lead out on the grass to help him refocus and get his manners back.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
We recommend your next step should be…

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.
