It was a pleasure to work with Miss Tilly today. She is still showing signs of reactivity towards other dogs, but as the day progressed she began to redirect her focus onto the trainer. We would recommend a private training session to further discuss her training options.
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: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her first session, Tilly focused on further developing her skill drop outside in preparation for introducing dogs. Tilly responds well to the drop command, quickly going into the correct position. However, she can struggle to hold duration when in drop. As the session progressed Tilly began to perform well, showing good engagement and skills. While completing this session another dog walked past, this caused Tilly to react and lose all focus. Once the dog had passed she redirect her focus onto the trainer.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In her second session, Tilly focused on further developing her skill loose lead with drop while another dog was training within the classroom. Tilly performed well, she showed good engagement, she did show reactivity towards the other dog but it was only brief and when asked for drop she stopped. The trainer used her known skills drop to keep her engagement while around the other dog or if she was becoming reactive. We would recommend practising this skill at home in a low distracting environment such as inside your house. When she is showing good engagement slowly increase the distractions.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her final session, Tilly focused on further developing her skill drop with duration, under high distractions. We focused on this skill as during today's training she has been struggling to hold her duration, especially under distractions. These distractions included multiple dogs training within the classroom. Tilly performed very well, she showed good engagement, despite the added movement within the classroom.||Focus: Duration||B+|

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.
