Teddy started off really strong today but did struggle a bit by the end of the training day. He did some great work though!
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 Teddles outside in the sunshine to work on his loose lead with 3 other dogs outside training as well. At the start he was a little distracted and walked ahead a bit but soon settle in to walking very nicely. His confidence did seem to improve over time too, he was more eager to continue the walk than trying to lead the trainer back to the kennels. We also added a few drops while out and about to help get Teddy ready for controlled positions around other dogs in preparation for his obedience classes. Next time we'd like to continue with this to help build his confidence further. Keep up the great at home and continue getting him used to his environments as his confidence will just keep building!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: For his second session we continued work on Teddy's paws up skill. He would happily do paws up on the cushioned stool but did struggle with other objects. He did manage to do a few paws up on the step stool but wouldn't attempt small or low objects. He did try the Wobble board but struggled to keep balance on it. Next time we'd like to continue getting Teddy used to doing paws up on multiple objects so that he has a great generalised skill for any stressful situation. At home encourage him to do paws up on medium height objects but also start trying to lure him onto lower/smaller objects if he is still struggling with them.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For his last session we started working on Teddy's skateboard skill. He did touch it a few times with one paw but did get very distracted when a trainer he is not familiar with was in the room (he lost all focus and "hid" behind his current trainer). Because he was very unsettled we spent a good portion of the session getting Teddy to chill and adjust to the new trainer while also trying to get him to do a few basic skills to keep his focus on his training. Next time we'd like to continue conditioning Teddy to different people while continuing his trick skills for confidence.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
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.
