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 Daisy’s first session today we worked on her loose lead outside. She did very well with this today, she still pulled to smell certain things, however we made her go into a drop first and then released her to go and smell. If she pulled at all on the lead we would change directions and gain her focus again. Every time she looked at the trainer we rewarded that, it became more frequent towards the end of the session which is great! This just needs practice but she is obviously getting that at home as she has shown great progress. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For her second session today we worked on her place skill and her around skill. We did this inside because it was raining but we were really able to push the distractions today! She seems to really enjoy the place skill and is always happy to jump back on. We could roll tennis balls, drag the rope toy and skate past without her breaking position. We continued working on her around skill as well as it’s a good way to keep place exciting and also works on recall, as she is being sent away and then coming back towards the trainer. She was a bit slow to do this but she still does it and shows great interest. This all just needs practice but she is showing great progress! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For her last session today we had some fun outside! We worked on her drop skill out on the grassed training area. The trainer was testing her impulse control with distractions. To do this, the trainer got her into a drop and then played dead on the floor near her. Daisy did so well and stayed in position while the trainer was laying on the ground. For a lot of dogs this is too tempting and will come up and say hi but Daisy absolutely smashed this skill today! She still needed a hand signal instead of a verbal cue for the skill however that all comes in time. To work on the verbal cue at home, just practice saying it loudly and clearly whilst also doing the hand motion. Eventually the hand signal can be reduced and she will start to respond to the verbal cue instead! Go Daisy!! Focus: Distraction B+
