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: For Heras first session we worked on her loose lead in the cattery. This is an important skill as it allows for nice walking without any pulling. Hera started off very distracted by the cats and bunnies in the cattery but towards the end she had some really good engagement. This was achieved by using ‘uh uh’ when she pulled and yes whenever she was next to the trainer. Towards the end of the session we were even able to walk past the bunnies and Hera held eye contact with the trainer. The next step for Hera will be to work on her loose lead around low energy dogs. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Heras second session we worked on her drop skill with cat and bunny desensitisation. This is good as it pushes Heras distractions while in her drop but also teaches her to ignore cats and bunnies. Hera started off very over aroused and was staring at the cat. She broke/crawled multiple times and when this occurred she was told ‘uh uh’ and put back into her drop. She was constantly rewarded when looking at the cat and after a few minutes she relaxed and started to show amazing engagement with the trainer. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: For Heras last session we worked on her recalls. This is good to be able to get Hera to come back to you when distractions are around. We started with recalls in the classroom and she did really well so we progressed to outside. Hera again did well however there were a couple times she got distracted and wouldn’t come back to the trainer. When Hera did come back she was required to sit before she was told ‘yes’ and was then released. The next step for Hera will be to continue working on her recall in low distractions. Focus: Repetition B
