Tilly had a fun day training with a new trainer she hasn't met before. We went over a bit of obedience around other dogs as well some fun trick training with her middles.
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: Tilly made her way to the car park to work on her loose lead walking. As we made our way out, Tilly tried pulling her way over. We focused on her manners, making her sit before going through doors. Once outside she started engaging with her trainer. She would momentarily loose her focus to sniff around which would make her hit the end of the lead, although quickly making her way back to our side. As we walked, Tilly started walking by our side more often. We started to add in some drops as we walked, with Tilly happily making her way down when instructed. She got up before her release once or twice, although finishing the lesson completing both skills reliably.
|Skill learnt: Middle Position
|Comment: Tilly worked on her middles skill, focusing on consistency of the skill with her new trainer. We put some repetition in, getting her to go through into position with just the verbal and the hand signal. Tilly would be cheeky every now and then, going through our legs one way before pulling off to sniff scents in the classroom. After a bit of repetition, Tilly was reliably completing the skill so we added in some movement, working on getting her to walk forward and backwards whilst between our legs. She did well moving forward although was a bit confused when it came to walking backwards. we used a lure to help her, with her starting to understand what we were asking of her. Once she was doing this consistently we added in some spins whilst between our legs to finish off the lesson.
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: Tilly worked on her place skill with dog distractions. Tilly's engagement was very good this lesson as we worked right next to another dog. Tilly happily jumped on and off the bed as asked, although stepping off with one paw every now and then. Once she was consistently staying on the bed, we started sending her between two beds from a distance. We would put her in the middle, sending her either to the bed on the left or the right, making sure she went to the one we sent her to, She showed a good knowledge of the skill, always going to the bed we pointed too. By the end of the lesson she reliably when on and off the bed as instructed.
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.
