Today we focused on pushing Bruno's skills to the next level - he did quite well but needs a bit more focus in some areas.
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 his first session we worked on Bruno's loose lead skill outside. Bruno was a little distracted for the first 5 minutes but responded well to his markers. After 5 minutes he started giving much better engagement with the trainer. He did get distracted a few times by cars and dogs in the carpark so this is something to work on in future sessions as it can be hard to recapture his focus during these times.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his second session we worked on Bruno's drops. Bruno is getting better in his duration so we started with some movement distractions today (having the trainer take several steps away, jump to one side, etc). He did struggle quite a bit with these distractions at the start but did start to improve. This would be good to continue working on as Bruno is so food and people motivated he struggles to stay in drop. For the last 5 minutes we worked on just some drop duration - he broke twice but then settled down into his drop and relaxed.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For his last session we worked on Bruno's place skill. Bruno has some good foundations and was able to be sent to place easily. We worked on some distractions for him today, starting with movement distractions and then moving onto tennis balls. Bruno struggled with the tennis balls at the start - he broke quite a few times before he started staying on place. By the end of the session he was able to stay on place while 2 tennis balls were thrown and rolled past him which is good progress. Next time we'd like to continue pushing the distraction level for him to help solidify his skill.||Focus: Distraction||B|
