Bindi is starting to build good foundations in her skills. While she is easily distracted she is improving each time we see her!
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: For the first few minutes we spent time building Bindi's engagement by throwing treats to the side and rewarding her first looking back at the trainer. She did really well with this and even did some sits and drops with verbal cue only during this time. After this we worked on her loose lead in an empty classroom. She did struggle with her engagement here and would often move around wherever she wanted rather than focusing on the trainer. She did give some good moments of engagement but needs more practice with this in a low distraction environment.||Focus: Back to Basics||C|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For her second session we revisited place in the classroom with another dog around. Initially she bounced right off the bed as soon as she was on it but she built duration quickly. She is getting good at settling down on the bed herself and was spending her time on the bed just watching the other dog. Everytime she was released she did lose engagement and she did break a few times near the end when the dog was closer but overall much better than last time we did place with her! She also held place with the trainer moving away a few steps. At home build up her duration and distraction levels gradually.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For her first session we went over loose lead again in the classroom with another dog out as a distraction. Bindi did much better this time, though her loose lead wasn't great she was more engaged with the trainer and more responsive to her markers. She did well to continue with the trainer when walking past the other dog and did no more than just look. Great progress from this little miss!||Focus: Distraction||C+|
