Chema did some really great work today. He just needs some tidying up for some of his basic obedience skills - keep working on them at home!
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: Chema pulled a lot on the lead when exiting the kennels so we started off with some loose lead outside with drops. It took a little bit for Chema to settle down but after a minute or so he was giving really good engagement. He does still have a tendency to walk on an angle while watching the trainer so we worked on luring him into the correct position. He was quite good with his drops but did break early a few times so his drops do need a bit more work (particularly outside with distractions).||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his second session we worked on Chema's drops inside with movement distractions. Again Chema was very quick to go into drops but did struggle a few times with the trainer moving around, particularly with high energy movements. In the last 5 minutes we spent a bit of time with Chema doing drop duration - after breaking a few times at the start he did start to settle down and stay in his drops. At home practice both duration and light movement distractions with Chema in his drops to improve the skill.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For his last session we worked on place with ball distractions. Chema did really well with a few tennis balls being bounced past. We tested his skill with a bucket of tennis balls being dropped in front of him - the first time he broke but then stayed on place the second time. Continue using light distractions at home while Chema is on place to build his skill.||Focus: Distraction||B|
