It was a pleasure to train with Miss Fern today, she is such a sweet girl who loves her cuddles.
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: In her first session, Fern focused on further developing her skill 'Loose lead walking' with repetitions under distractions. We focused on this skill to reduce her challenging behaviour of pulling. Fern initially showed little engagement with her trainer and was showing a challenging behaviour of pulling. However, as the session progressed, she slowly began to redirect her focus onto the trainer and walk in the correct position, despite distractions (another dog training around her). We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home in a low distracting environment.||Focus: Foundation||C|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In her second session, Fern focused on learning the new skill 'place' with repetitions under distractions (another dog training in the classroom). We focused on this to build her impulse control. Fern performed well, she initially struggled with duration and broke straightaway, but with some guidance she began to maintain it well. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||C|
|Skill learnt: Sit||Comment: In her final session, Fern focused on further developing her skill 'sit' with repetitions under distraction (two dogs training within the classroom). We focused on this skill to help improve her decision making as part of her canine reactivity. Fern was initially distracted by the high distracting environment and showed little engagement with her trainer, but with some guidance she quickly began to redirect her focus and perform well. Next time we would like to see Fern ignore the distractions. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||C|
