Holly's Doggy Dayschool Report

2022-05-10

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: Holly practiced her ‘loose lead’ walking with her added ‘drop’ skill outside on the concrete for her first session, she did really well! Holly had great engagement and listened to the trainer, following her hand motion to go into a drop. Since Holly was doing well, the trainer moved to the grass for some more distractions, and although this did test her a bit more, all eyes were on the trainer when she brought out the yummy treats. Keep up the great work! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Leave Comment: Next up, Holly worked on her ‘leave it’ skill. This is where Holly was presented with a closed fist full of treats, once she stopped pawing, booping and licking at it she would hear “yes” and be rewarded for leaving it alone. She caught on quick so the trainer was able to move to an open hand full of treats and began to add the verbal cue ‘leave it’. Once you present her with the open hand, once she shows interest say “leave it”, if she does, say “yes” and reward her with a higher value treat. Keep practicing this and we will be able to push her further by utilising this skill on walks with any object she may wish to pick up/play with. Focus: Foundation B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: To finish Holly’s day, she worked more on her ‘place training’ focusing on multiple dog, trainer and ball distractions. She did pretty well! Holly was able to go to and from place with all this commotion, but every now and again she would get a little distracted and just sit, but with the use of her non-reward marker “ah ah”, she would proceed. Keep pushing this at home! Focus: Distraction B+
