Duchess was such a good girl today, she was very overwhelmed to begin with however she started to settle by the end of her training sessions.
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: For Duchess’s first session we worked on conditioning her to the trainer. When the trainer first entered the kennel Duchess had her tail very low and went to the corner. The trainer instead of approaching, gave Duchess her space and went to the other corner where she continued to ignore Duchess. The trainer often threw treats to Duchess however didn’t push her by going up to pat her. Instead Duchess was given the space and was able to approach the trainer on her terms letting her be more comfortable. After a few minutes Duchess came up to the trainer and started to sniff her. The trainer then proceeded to place the lead on and headed up to the training room. Getting to the training room took alot of encouragement.||Focus: Conditioning||X|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: For Duchess’s second session we worked on conditioning her to the classroom. Duchess came into the classroom very nervous and overwhelmed. The trainer simply sat with Duchess while she adjusted to the classroom, offering cuddles and treats. Duchess still wasn’t taking treats however was accepting pats from the trainer.||Focus: Conditioning||X|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: For Duchess’s third session we continued conditioning her to the classroom. As she still wasn’t taking treats and was unsure of the new environment we let her walk around exploring. Duchess did appear more comfortable in the classroom to the end of the session however she still wasn’t taking treats. Hopefully next dayschool she will continue to work on building some confidence in the classroom and begin to take treats so we can work on some skills!||Focus: Conditioning||X|
