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!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For Freya’s first session we worked on her skateboard skill. This skill is good for confidence and concentration. Freya is doing really well with her skateboard skill! To progress her skill we are trying to get her to start moving the skateboard on her own. To do this we are using a lure which she follows while on the skateboard. Freya is struggling a bit more with moving the skateboard as she often walks forward with her front paws instead of her back paws. To reduce this behaviour the trainer would tell her ‘nope’ when she would step with her front legs however when she stepped with her back legs she was told ‘yes’ and rewarded. The next step for Freya will be continue working on her skateboard skill getting her to move her back legs rather than front. Focus: Confidence A
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For Freya’s second session we worked on the skill ‘sit pretty’. This skill is good for building muscle and confidence. Freya did so well throughout this session! As she is learning this skill the trainer used a lure to get her into ‘sit pretty’. Freya was first asked to sit and a treat was then held just above her head. When Freya lifted her front legs she was told ‘yes’ and rewarded. The next step for Freya will be to continue working on the foundation of ‘sit pretty’. Focus: Foundation B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Freya’s last session we worked on her drop skill. This skill is useful as it allows them to be in a controlled position around distractions. Freya did so well and dropped majority of the time asked. The few times she didn’t drop all the trainer had to do was say ‘uh uh’ and she straight away went into her drop. The next step for Freya will be to continue working on her drops around his distractions. Focus: Distraction A
