It was a pleasure to train with Aussie today, he was a little nervous to start but his confidence grew as the day progressed. We would suggest continuing to practise his obedience skills at home while building his confidence. Don't hesitate to book a private appointment to further discuss his 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: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: When the trainer first went to greet Aussie he was a little fearful and hesitant to approach. However, with the help of treats, he quickly gained confidence with the trainer. The trainer used this session to build his confidence and engagement within the classroom. The trainer played a simple engagement game where when he looks at the trainer a treat is thrown on the floor. The faster he looks at the trainer the faster the next treat is released. This worked well, his engagement improved and the trainer began working on his loose lead walking.||Focus: Confidence||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Aussie focused on learning the new skill drop within the busy classroom (one dog training in classroom and four dogs in crates). We focused on this skill to build his impulse control to help when around distractions, including dogs and birds. Aussie showed good engagement at the beginning of this session and follows a lure well into the drop position. When in a drop he does struggle to hold position, this is expected as he is still learning the skill. As the session progressed he began to maintain his duration for slightly longer. We would recommend continuing to build his duration at home.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final session, Aussie focused on further developing his confidence, using a 360 wobble board. Aussie was initially hesitant to interact with the wobble board, however with patients and treats he began to place one paw on. As the session progressed his confidence grew and he successfully placed all four paws on the wobble board.||Focus: Confidence||B+|
