Cadbury is a sweet boy who loves his training and learning new skills, he performed very well today but can struggle with engagement when around distractions. Cadbury did not show any signs or reactivity throughout his session today.
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: In his first session, Cadbury focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead walking ' within a low distracting environment (classroom). We focused on this skill to help reduce his challenging behaviour of pulling. Cadbury performed well, he was initially distracted and showed little engagement with his trainer. But with some guidance he slowly began to redirect his focus back onto his trainer and walk in the correct position. Next time we would like to see Cadbury engage with his trainer earlier in the session. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home in a low distracting environment.||Focus: Foundation||C|
|Skill learnt: Crate Training||Comment: In his second session, Cadbury focused on further developing his skill 'crate' within a low distracting classroom environment. We focused on this skill to build his confidence surrounding the crate. Cadbury performed very well, he was initially hesitant to go into the crate, but with some guidance he slowly began to follow treats into the crate. The lure was slowly faded and the trainer began to add the verbal cue 'crate' while he continued to go inside. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his final session, Cadbury focused on further developing his skill 'place' with duration under distractions (food). We focused on this skill to help develop his impulse control surrounding both food and dogs. Cadbury performed very well, he remind on place despite the high value food distractions (name spelt with food and another dog training within the classroom). We suggest continuing to practise and challenge him and home.||Focus: Distraction||A|
