As this was Teddy’s first session back after the holidays the trainer took it slow, focusing on engagement, confidence and conditioning. It was great to see him today, we missed him over the holidays.
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: Place Training||Comment: In his first session, Teddy focused on reintegrating into the classroom environment and relaxing around other dogs and the trainers while on place with a yummy LickiMat. He was initially unsettled within the classroom, and broke place twice, but with some guidance he began to remain on place and slowly begin to settle. Once settled Teddy performed very well, he did not break place for the remainder of the session. Next time the trainer hopes Teddy will feel more comfortable within the classroom. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home, as I am sure you already are.||Focus: Conditioning||C|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In the second session, Teddy focused on developing his skill 'paw' while the trainer also conditioned touching his paws. Teddy was initially hesitant to give his paw to the trainer as he was distracted. To redirect his focus, Teddy spent a few minutes doing send to place. Once engaged Teddy performed very well, he uses both paws and is happy for the trainer to touch his paws all over. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home, using lots of treats and at a very low level.||Focus: Conditioning||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his third session, Teddy focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead walking' with repetitions under distraction (training outside while cars and people were going in and out of the kennel). Teddy Performed very well, he can initially get distracted by both cars and people but redirects his focus quickly. Teddy had good engagement and did not show any signs of reactivity. The trainer was very impressed with Mr Teddy during this session. Keep up the great work at home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
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.
