Tilly had a great day today! She is so excited to be back at Day School and we love seeing her happy face!
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: Middle Position||Comment: First session Tilly worked on her middles. She was a bit cheeky to start so we went back to basics luring and she quickly got the hang of it and was going into position. We used treats to lure her to walk forwards, around in circles and even walking backwards! We also added sit and drop repetitions while in middles. Great work Tilly!||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Tilly’s second session we worked on her drops outside with dog distractions. She was a bit slow in her drops to start with and was sniffing around a lot on the ground when we first went on the grass so we moved to the gravel to help her focus. We were able to move back to the grass. She held her drop well around other dogs and staff walking by!||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: Tilly’s last session we worked on her greetings. Today we tried something a little different to help Tilly make the right choices herself. We had another staff member approach while Tilly was at free liberty (not in a position we had asked for and free to do as she chooses) if she began to pull ahead the other staff member stopped and walked away. With some repetition Tilly soon learnt that to get some attention she needed to be calm and began standing waiting or sitting while the other trainer approached. We also worked on us approaching the other trainer first calmly and at a slow walk expecting the same thing, if she offers a calm behaviour she can say hello, if she pulls ahead we turn the other way. Over time Tilly’s trainer was able to run upto the other trainer in an excited manner and hug them all while Tilly sat patiently!||Focus: Manners||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.
