It was a pleasure to have Mr Barney back training with us today. He is performing well with all of his skills, although he can easily become distracted by people or dogs. Once engaged he performs very well, keep up the great work.
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: Place Training||Comment: In his first session Barney focused on further developing his skill ‘send to place’ with distance and distractions. These distractions included another dog (Teddy) who the trainer was also conditioning Barney to). Barney performed very well, he responds well to the place command and has good duration. Barney was successfully sending to place with no guidance from his trainer from 3 meters away from the bed, ignoring all distractions.||Focus: Distance||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Barney focused on further developing his skill ‘drop’ with repetitions under distractions (training outside around Teddy). We focused on this skill to build his understanding and knowledge as well as build engagement. Barney was initially distracted by the outside environment and struggled to engage with his trainer. However, with some guidance he quickly began to redirect his focus and perform well. Once engaged Barney performed very well, he ignored distractions and showed great understanding of the skill. However, training outside this focus can be quickly lost.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his final session, Barney focused on further developing his skill ‘loose lead’ walking under distractions (training outside near other dogs). Barney was initially distracted, but quickly redirected his focus and perform very well. The trainers were impressed with Mr Barney in this session, he showed good engagement and eye connect.||Focus: Distraction||B|
