Fletcher did quite well today although does lack a little engagement. As the sessions went on Fletcher improved greatly.
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 Fletchers first session we worked on place. This skill very helpful in different situations. We would like to see them get to the point they can remain on place with even the most tempting distractions. Today we worked on the basic foundations of the skill. Fletcher was a little unsure to begin with and unwilling to take treats. After about 8 minutes of repetition and verbal praise Fletcher seemed to understand a bit better however still needs some coaxing. I would like to see this skill worked on at home. Watching tv is the perfect opportunity to practice this skill. Send to place while your show is on and release and play during add breaks. That being said- not a show you're too invested in as you might be getting up and down a lot to begin with.||Focus: Foundation||C|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Fletcher was great during this session and seemed a lot more engaged woth his trainer. Fletcher began taking treats during this session and responded well to verbal cues. Fletcher maintained a slack leash with an array of distractions (toys and dogs) and was truly awesome. Next time I would like to take this session outdoors to test his knowledge of this skill.||Focus: Repetition||A|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Fletchers final session we worked on his drop skill. Fletcher seems to have a basic understanding of this skill however didn't want to truly apply himself. We went back to basics and started with lure and hand cues into drop. By the end of the session Fletcher was performing the command with just a hand cue 90% of the time. Fletcher did a great job establishing what I was asking of him. I would like to see this skill worked on at home- different locations within the house will be beneficial to his training.||Focus: Foundation||B|
