Ziggy did very well today. We focused on a mixture of obedience, manners and a fun trick for his sessions.
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: As Ziggy did pull a lot from the kennels we worked on his loose lead for his first session. Ziggy took a few laps to settle down and start focusing on the trainer but once he did he went really well. We did add some drops in to the walk - he would often just sit but after a few goes started going properly into his drop. He did really well around other dogs and didn't seem much interested in them, instead focusing on and listening to the trainer. Next time we'd like to see better manners from Ziggy when leaving the kennels and have him going properly into drops from the start when walking. At home, practice regularly adding drops into walks to help him focus and settle.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his second session we continued work on Ziggy's door manners. We started the session by asking him to sit or drop at a door and then having him stay in that position while the door is opened and then being released to walk through. Ziggy did really well at this and didn't have any issues waiting in the doorways. We even worked on just stopping at doorways and allowing him to offer a behaviour - he would immediately sit or drop as soon as the trainer stopped in front of the door which was great! At home practice having him sit or drop in front of doors before going through them.||Focus: Manners||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For his last session we continued work on Ziggy's hold skill. At the beginning of the session he kept licking it but did eventually start biting onto it. We encouraged him to hold it for a second longer with some small success though he would sometimes get bored trying to hold it. Next time we'd like to see Ziggy bite onto it a second longer so that we can continue building his duration. At home give him extra treats whenever he holds onto it just that little bit longer.||Focus: Duration||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.
