Dex was such a good boy today and gave everything 100%!
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: Middle Position||Comment: Dex started off his day with his ‘middles’ skill, focusing on distance. He performed so well and was able to come in between the trainers legs from great distances away. However, if the trainer was too much on an angle, he would often run in front and lay down, not understanding what he has done wrong. Keep working on this at home and slowly increase the angles, reward him lots if he does it correct. If he doesn’t, use his non-reward marker “ah ah” and try again. Practice makes perfect!||Focus: Distance||B+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Dexter’s next training session was focused on his ‘loose lead’ walking outside with a dog distraction. Dex did so well and kept great engagement throughout the whole 15 minutes. He walked beautifully beside the trainer and did not care about the other dog at all. Keep up testing him with these distractions to ensure he keeps his fantastic engagement!||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: To finish up, Dex practiced his ‘touch’ skill. He did excellent and touched the target stick every time without fail, even if he had to jump for it! He is such a confident boy and we want him to stay that way, so by having him revisit this skill and having to boop a stick in odd positions, he gains confidence as he is always rewarded with a treat, making it a positive experience. Amazing work today, Dex!! (:||Focus: Confidence||A|
