Tink did some good work on her excitement and reactivity today. Her loose lead is really coming along and she smashed out her place skill!
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 her first session we got right into loose lead. We started off in the classroom with another dog on place - she did well to ignore the other dog and gave good engagement to the trainer. She only reacted to him once with a single bark after he growled first which is great for her! We did a bit of walking outside too - she pulled quite a bit at the start but did start to settle and follow the trainer. At the very end when she was back in the classroom she was very distracted by a young puppy and broke her drop (took some time after puppy left to go back into it). At home practice loose lead outside in the back/front yard to build the distraction levels and focus on engagement.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For her second session we worked on drop duration with two other dogs in the room. She did break the drop early when the second dog entered but once hse was put back in drop she was really good at ignoring both dogs. Once her engagement was back on the trainer we had her go in and out of drop around the dogs which she did awesome with! (We did use more of a lure than normal to make it easier for her). To finish off the session we worked on the "search skill" - scattering food as a distraction when around a trigger. She did really well with this and was able to move close to the dogs for food without any reactivity! Keep working on her emergency drops and building up her search skill.||Focus: Duration||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For her last session we worked on place with two other dogs around. She did really well with this! She stayed on place with high energy movement distractions, tennis balls, squeaky toys and with the scooter going past. The only main area for improvement is in sending her to place - she would hesitate a few times to look at the other dog but otherwise did great!||Focus: Distraction||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.
