Tink had lots of fun today, while she worked hard she also got to cool off in the paddle pool!
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: Recall
|Comment: Her first session today focused on recalls outside around a dog distraction. She was quite distracted by smells in the grass and the dog so we worked on a short lead, practicing lots of repetitions. Making sure we have her focus before calling “come” is important, this way we are setting her up for success where possible.
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: This session was all about her loose lead walking and drops. We chose a shady spot to work in, also around another high energy dog distraction. She was initially distracted but her focus improved quickly, utilising her drop skill was beneficial to help slow her down and bring her focus to her trainer.
|Skill learnt: Sit
|Comment: This session was all about her door manners. We worked all over the property, finding as many doors or gates as possible. We asked for a sit, opened the door slowly, the trainer moved through, then released Tink through, back into a sit or drop so we could close the door. We found she would rush through the door, so having her focus first before releasing her is really important.
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.
