Sonny did very well today! He spent some time in the Cattery with his bunny friends and was very well mannered!
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: Drop/ Down
|Comment: For our first session we started with drops in the classroom. Although Sonny was excited to be going into the classroom and training, he listened very well to his trainer. His drops are improving, becoming quicker and more consistent. Although at times his environment can be a bit too distracting, he still tries his hardest to listen.
|Skill learnt: Desensitisation
|Comment: Sonny did very well in the cattery today, completely ignoring most of the cats after noticing they were there. We tested Sonny further again with the bunnies. He is very interested in them and tries his hardest to resist the urge to chase them. We were again rewarding any attention that wasn’t towards the bunnies.
|Skill learnt: Spin
|Comment: For our final session we continued to work on spins and twirls! He was very excited again to work on his Spins! He began by trying to spin in the air because he was so full of energy and excitement but he quickly began spinning well with all 4 paws on the ground. We also added in his twirl today (spinning the other way) and he picked this up very quickly! We can continue this skill by slowly phasing out his lure.
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.
