Bolt was nervous of the trainers and environment when arrived today, as the day progressed, he showed signs of building trust but was still weary of the trainers. We will continue to work on building his confidence around people and the new environment, when attending his dayschools.
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!

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: Bolt's sessions began when he arrived at the Hedgrove pet retreat facility. While in the van, he was displaying nervous, fearful and aggressive behaviours towards the trainers. On approach he would begin to growl and create space (move away). The trainers spent his sessions focusing on conditioning, build his confidence and trust around people. This included approaching Bolt, giving him treats and reassurance, then leaving. The trainers used multiple short sessions throughout the morning, each session he began to gain confidence with the trainers and very slowly begin to relax. He slowly began to not growl when the trainers approached and remain lying down. When multiple people approached, he continued to growl. The trainers continued to work with Bolt when in the kennel, he continued to show nervous behaviours and create space.||Focus: Conditioning||X|
