We worked hard and played hard today! We had the classroom almost to ourselves, just one sleepy greyhound as the perfect dog distraction - which she didn’t bark at once. He was still covered up so she couldn’t see him but this was awesome for her!
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."
|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Door Manners
|Comment: This session we worked on her manners leaving her accomodation, at each gate and to the classroom. She was VERY eager to get to the classroom so we made sure to practice her loose lead and throw in some drops to redirect that focus back to us. This took almost the whole session to get her to the classroom nicely, we wanted her to be able to focus before she got to the fun stuff!
|Skill learnt: Play
|Comment: This session was all about PLAY! We set up the spring pole and let her go for it! We had another toy to practice her “out.” While she had the tug that was hanging up we said “out” and tempted her with the tug toy we were holding. She would let go and come for the toy we had! We also practiced some place/on while we attached another tug to the spring pole, she did very well and showed some good impulse control, waiting for us to say “get it.”
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: Lastly we put all the toys away and focused on her place/on, drop and muzzle training. Sarai was super engaged this session, we switched between the different skills to keep it interesting for her. We utilised the muzzle for the walk back to her accomodation since the gate was now open for customers! Sarai did bark and pull towards some dogs behind the shade cloth but she had quick recovery and couldn’t get the lead since she was wearing a muzzle! Well done Sarai!
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.
