"Dexter"

2021-03-23

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: Place Training Comment: For his first session we worked on Dexter's place under distraction. He was a bit cheeky at the start and broke a few times to follow the trainer. Once he had settled down he did really well though and was able to move past a whole heap of toys to and from place with no issue. Next time we'd like to see him smash his place skill with higher level distractions. At home use toy and food distractions to help continue building this skill. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his second session we worked on Dexter's loose lead skill around another dog with emergency drops. Dexter was really good at his loose lead but did struggle to stay in his drop a few times. He did get better duration throughout the session and was able to hold his drop well with the trainer nearby and the other dog being excitable. Next time we'd like to see some better duration in Dexter's drops and the same high level of loose lead when outside with higher distractions. At home, practice Dexter's emergency drops while walking to keep him focused and engaged during his loose lead sessions. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For his last session we worked on Dexter's Bell skill as something fun for him to finish on. Dexter is good at touching the bell with his nose but does have a tendency to push the bell rather than press it. We spent some time encouraging him to use his paw on the bell but it hasn't quite clicked for him yet. Next time we hope to get Dexter to use his paw and encourage him to properly press the bell rather than push it around. At home reward higher for him using his paw on similar objects than his reward for interacting with his nose. Focus: Repetition C+
