Tilly was such a good girl with her skills today but can still get distracted by other dogs in certain circumstances. Keep up the good work with her!
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: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: For her first session we worked on her loose lead, starting in the carpark and progressing to the grassy area. Tilly did well and after the first few laps on grass (where she was very distracted sniffing) she did settle and start to focus on the trainer more. For the latter half of the session another dog started working in the carpark; even at a distance of the whole carpark she was quite fixated on him but didn't bark. She also still did her drop and place skills with him visible at the distance but kept watching him and slightly pulling when walking on the grass. This did improve though and in the last few minutes she was starting to ignore him more.
|Skill learnt: Trick Training
|Comment: For her second session we continued working on the quoits skill. Tilly went straight for it and we only rewarded her for big pick ups/throws from the start. She managed to get two rings on the peg within the first 5 minutes but I don't think it has quite clicked for her that that is the aim of the game! She is enthusiastic throwing the rings around so we can continue shaping her to getting them on the peg more reliably.
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: For her last session we took Tilly over to the kennels to work on some drops around the boarding dogs. Tilly did really well with this, she didn't react at all to the dogs but also seemed a bit nervous of all of them. Because of this we kept the sessions short and sweet so as to not push her too far and gave her breaks away from the dogs to settle and reset. She held her drop so well though even with all the dogs close by and barking. Awesome job Tilly!
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.
