Zolli was amazing today! She came out of the accomodating ready to work straight away and made some great progress on her skills today!
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: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: Smashed her first session today! The trainer took her out of accomodation and did some loose lead walking in the car park, a much more high distraction area than in the classroom. She did so well with this today, she did hit the end of the line a few times to begin with but with the help of her “uh-uh” marker and reminding her with some lures she was quick to recover and was soon trotting along nicely next to the trainer! She also had great engagement today which the trainer will utilise for the rest of the day.
|Skill learnt: Middle Position
|Comment: For her second session the trainer worked on her middles position. She is just starting this skill so the trainer was still using lures today to condition her to be in the right positions. She did really well with this session today being able to follow a single lure back and forth under the trainers legs, this is progress since she was only following two lures last session (one thrown through the legs then another to catch her attention coming back and getting her into a sit) today she was able to just follow the single lure through then spin around and follow the same lure back again and into the sit, she is doing so well today and the trainer is very impressed!
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: For her last session today the trainer worked Zolli in the classroom around other dogs with her drop skills today. They noticed earlier that she was having some trouble doing her drops when asked so the trainer made sure they did a session on this today to strengthen this skill. To start she needed a lure and a very clear verbal command in order to get into the drop but the trainer wanted to make sure she progressed today. They started adding some speed and excitement into the lure being dropped down, this enticed Zolli to follow it with a bit more speed and focus. By the end of this session she was dropping much faster on command than the start of the session, not only this she was able to learn all of this while working around another dog in the classroom showing us just how good her focus can be if we keep the training interesting and engaging enough. She had a great day today going back to accomodation nice and tired and having made some great progress.
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.
