2021-09-23

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!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In her first session, Hera focused on further developing her skill drop within the classroom. We focused on this skill as she can struggle with her drops recently. Hera was initially distracted by the classroom environment, she showed little engagement and did not respond to the drop command. As the session progressed, she slowly began to redirect her focus, she did require a lure and a land hand signal to perform drop. We recommend practicing her drops at home in an outside environment. Focus: Obedience C
Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning Comment: In her second session, Hera focused on further conditioning to the muzzle. We focused on this skill to boost her confidence around the muzzle. The trainer took this session slowly, placing treats inside the muzzle to encourage her nose inside. Hera quickly placed her nose in the muzzle and held good duration. Hera successfully wore her muzzle and completed place. She was initially unsure but progressed well throughout the session. Focus: Confidence B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In her final session, Hera focused on further developing her skill place in a high distracting environment (training outside with three other dogs in the carpark). We focused on this skill to help her relax around other dogs. Hera performed well. She initially was interested in the other dogs and lost some engagement but continued to remain on place. As the session progressed, she began to redirect her focus and ignore the other dogs. The trainer was impressed with her progress throughout this session. Focus: Distraction B

We recommend your next step should be…
