Zoltan was a trooper today! Even with the warmer weather he made good efforts in his skills and earned his rest back in the air conditioned kennels!
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: Exposure
|Comment: For his first session we used the shell pool full of ice and water as some confidence building for Zoltan. Zoltan was very apprehensive of the pool, throughout the session he only walked into it once and then was a bit avoidant of it so we did some loose lead moving progressively closer to let him settle down around it. Getting Zoltan used to moving on different surfaces is a great way to boost his confidence.
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: For his second session we worked on some loose lead in the air conditioned classroom with a focus on inside turns and auto sits. Zoltan did pretty well with these and wasn't bothered about the other dog in the crate. For the last 5 minutes we worked on his crate skill with one of our crates - after several attempts he was going in on his own and staying in the crate until released which is great!
|Skill learnt: Ring a Bell
|Comment: For his last session we started working on the ring bell skill (ship bell). He was a bit tired this session from the day but we were still able to do some shaping towards interacting with the bell/rope. We finished off with a bit of place in front of the fan to let him cool down and rest a bit.
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.
