Trinity performed well today, she is showing good progress with her skills. We would recommend continuing to focus on her sit and place to help her settle.
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: In her first session, Trinity focused on further developing her loose lead walking within the busy classroom around multiple people. We focused on this skill to build her engagement around people and reduce her challenging behaviour of pulling. Trinity was initially excited to be training and struggle to show engagement. The trainer initially used a small lure to help her build engagement and follow the trainer. As the session progressed her engagement improved and she began to ignore surrounding distractions. The trainer challenged her with walking up to people, then walk away. She initially struggled but after several repetitions, she began to perform well.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Sit||Comment: In her second session, Trinity focused on further developing her skill sit with duration around the busy classroom (4 trainers moving around). We focused on this skill to build her duration and begin adding distractions (people). Trinity initially struggled to respond to the sit command, but the trainer went back to basics and introduced a lure. This helped her focus and begin to perform well. As the session progressed the lure slowly faded while she continued to perform well. Her duration improved throughout the session, along with her engagement.||Focus: Duration||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In her final session, Trinity focused on further developing her skill place within the busy classroom. We focused on this skill to help build her impulse control and to teach her to settle. Trinity initially required a lure to go onto the place, once on the bed, she showed little duration. As the session progressed Trinity began walking onto the bed independently and was showing progress with her duration. Once she knows this skill well, we can begin playing a training game called red light, green light. This game is where we use play to get dogs excited (green light), then ask them to perform a skill such as place or sit (red light). This would be a great exercise for Trinity to help her settle when excited, however, her skills need to be stronger first.||Focus: Foundation||C|
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.
