Woody has absolutely smashed his off lead work lately, showing very good engagement throughout these skills. He's also been having some fun working on his trick training.
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: Luring||Comment: Woody continued work on learning to follow a lure backwards. At the start of the lesson, Woody would walk backwards but would drift off to the side. We practiced getting Woody to follow our hands position to get him to go backwards. Woody started following our hand, taking multiple steps backwards at a time, letting us direct him depending on which way our hand was facing.||Focus: Conditioning||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Woody made his way out to our play pen to keep working on his off lead walking. Woody walked by his trainer’s side, losing his engagement every now and then for a few seconds at a time, but quickly returning back to focusing on his trainer. After some repetition we started adding in some other skills, putting Woody into a drop before putting some distance between us and recalling him to our side, before continuing with our walk. Woody got distracted once, not coming back but spent the rest of the lesson doing each skill as asked by his trainer.||Focus: Obedience||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: We took Woody outside the classroom, continuing work on his hoop skill, as well as starting some work on teaching him the spin skill. For the spin skill, we used a treat lure, taking it around in a circle to get Woody’s nose to follow it around in a circle. After some repetition, we’d move back to our spin skill to give Woody a break so he didn’t get too dizzy. At first Woody was a bit confused, following the treat around but doing it slowly. By the end of the lesson, Woody was following just the hand signal around quickly when asked.||Focus: Foundation||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.
