Chester was quite nervous today in the new environments but still loved getting cuddles from the staff. He made a start on a few of his skills but does need more work at home or in future 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!
"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: Conditioning||Comment: Chester was a lot more nervous in the kennels and classroom than Diesel. He did also pull a lot during his loose lead. In the classroom our main focus was to let Chester settle and relax with lots of treats (he was happy enough to eat from the trainer's hand). We worked on the "yes" marker, having him do some sits and then spending time on conditioning him to the crate (again he was much more nervous than Diesel and took a lot longer to go in fully).||Focus: Conditioning||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For his second session we worked on teaching the basics of place to Chester. It took a lot of treats and encouragement to get Chester on the bed and then building his duration. He did start to like the bed though and having a safe place to settle on while watching the classroom and other dogs. Building duration at home will help teach Chester to relax and help him gain confidence in new environments.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his last session we worked on loose lead in the classroom. Chester does struggle with engagement/focus but did start to improve a bit over time. He did still pull a bit in the classroom but throughout the session he did start walking better - keep this up inside the house at home to get his basics strong.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
