Woody was so ready to work today. We had lots of fun pushing his skill next door.
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: Drop/ Down
|Comment: This session focused on his emergency drops at the pony oval. Woody was very engaged with his trainer, even with another dog working nearby. He did need some guidance the first few attempts but improved quickly. Keep working on these in different environments.
|Skill learnt: Middle Position
|Comment: This session was all about middles with movement, at the pony oval again! Woody did well going into position from different angle. We didn’t need to lure him into position but did need some guidance when moving in middles. When working on this at home start fading the lure out when walking!
|Skill learnt: Trick Training
|Comment: This session we had some fun with “hold”. We used paint roller covered in tape. Woody started with just nudging the roller but quickly realised we wanted him to bite/hold it. We withheld rewards when he didn’t do something quite right to build a little bit of frustration. Keep rewarding for attempts closer to the end result.
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.
