Sebastian had a great day today! Such a happy boy who loves his training! We would love to see him at our upcoming Basic Obedience to help further his confidence and skills around other dogs
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: Middle Position
|Comment: First session Seb started working on middles. He can be hesitant going between the trainers legs so we worked on building his confidence up luring him between the trainers legs. After some repetition we started working on duration in the position. Middles is a great safety skill as well as a great position to help dogs feel more confident in different environments. He is still in early stages of luring only with no verbal cue yet, as he becomes more reliable we can begin adding the verbal cue.
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: Sebs second session we worked on his drops. Today we had an empty classroom which helped Sebs engagement. We worked on luring him under the leg with a trail of treats. He was able to go into a bow like position but he’s still not super confident going all the way under the leg/into the full drop. With more repetition he will slowly begin getting the understanding of the skill. Keep working on this at home.
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)
|Comment: In Sebs final session we worked on his Paws Up. This trick is a great confidence builder and a lot of fun. Seb showed some initial uncertainty about the step but quickly followed the lure up onto it. As the session progressed we were able to build his duration in this and added the verbal cue “paws up”. This can be used at home on various objects and out on walks to boost his confidence, help with engagement and it makes for a great photo!
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.
