Buddy's Doggy Dayschool Report

2022-05-27

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: Roxy’s first session today focused on her loose lead walking around dog distractions. We focused primarily on her engagement throughout this exercise. Roxy showed amazing focus on the trainer, if she was distracted we just had to call her name and lure her into position. She could care less about the other dogs training in the same environment. The only thing she seemed to do was cut in front of the trainer a little bit, when she did this the trainer stopped and lured her back into the right spot. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For her second session today Roxy worked on her drop duration. Roxy was able to follow just a hand signal and the label “drop.” We found that if we rewarded her while in position she would pop straight back up expecting another treat. To help with this, we would get her into a drop, mark, release then reward (opposed to position, mark, reward then release). Have a play around with this and see what you prefer, she did well with duration, regardless of the other dog and people distractions. She did pop up a few times but we just guided her back before releasing her. Keep working on this, slowly increasing that duration. Focus: Duration C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Roxy’s last session today focused on place send to. We wanted to see how far we could stand while sending her to the bed. We managed to get all the way to the end of the lead, before she started to struggle. When we went too far she kind of stopped and sat down, looking at us confused. When this happened we decreased distance and worked where she understood. Keep working on this one, slowly increasing that distance! She did so well today, it was a delight training her! Focus: Distance B+
