Arlo was much more himself today, he still struggled with his energy but was following lures and listening to verbal commands.
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: Trick Training||Comment: Arlo focused on learning the new skill 'paw over eye', we focused on this skill to build engagement and teach him something new. Arlo is still learning what is required for this skill, he is very tolerant of the sticky note, placed on his nose (to get him to paw at his nose). Arlo did complete several successfully repetitions throughout this session. Next time we hope to continue to develop Arlo's understanding of this skill.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his second session, Arlo focused on learning the new 'quoits' within the classroom. We began teaching this skill by getting Arlo to target the Quoits pole and base, this helps him aim where to put the rings. Arlo performed very well, he interacted with the base straight away, touching it with his nose. Next time we hope to get Arlo targeting and possibly holding the ring.||Focus: Foundation||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final session, Arlo focused on further shaping, pulling a hanky out of the cone. We focused on this to continue to challenge his problem solving skills. Arlo performed well, he interested with the cone straight away, touching it with his nose, he quickly began to target the hanky. He also began to open his mouth onto the hanky. The trainer was impressed with Arlo throughout this session.||Focus: Foundation||B|
