Baine was overexcited and showed challenging behaviours such as jumping up and biting at the lead. Throughout the day the trainers helped him settle, we would recommend a private training session to discuss how to improve this at home.
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: In his first session, Baine was overexcited and was displaying the challenging behaviour of pulling on the lead, jumping up and nipping. The trainer used this session to help Baine settle on the lead and reduce his challenging behaviours. After some guidance and going back to basics Baine began to settle and his challenging behaviours reduced. However whenever he became over-excited he would display them again. When this happened the trainer would go back to the calm environment and slowly go back to the exciting environment.||Focus: Manners||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Baine focused on further developing his loose lead and drop skills while outside around other dogs. Baine was initially distracted and a little silly when around the other dogs. However, he quickly redirected his focus onto his trainer. He responds well to the verbal cue drop when focused, he can struggle with duration but improved throughout the session.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his final session, Baine focused on further developing his skill place within the busy classroom environment. Baine showed a good basic knowledge of this skill, he goes onto the bed when directed by the trainer. He initially struggled to hold duration, but with some guidance from the trainer, he began to maintain it well. We would recommend practising this skill at home to help build his impulse control and to help him settle.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
