Jaeger started off today as a completely different dog! So engaged and confident! He did lost some focus throughout the day but was able to work well with his obedience skills.
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 his first session we worked on loose lead outside in the carpark. Jaeger walked ahead a bit at the start but quickly settled into a beautiful pace next to the trainer. His drops and sits while walking were spot on and his engagement was good. He got distracted once or twice by birds flying in the aviary but listened well to the trainer and refocused almost straight away. Fantastic work from Jaeger!||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his second session we started working on paws up. However Jaeger had lost his engagement and did not follow the lure onto the bucket. We tried again outside as he had done well outside last session but he still wasn't interested in the paws up skill. Therefore for the latter half of the session we worked on verbal only drops outside while walking which he did really well with (he even started to engage a bit again after a little bit). This is a great comfort skill for Jaeger when dealing with situations he is unsure of and so is a good skill to return to if he isn't focused dor engaged.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Exposure||Comment: For his last session we spent time working on some exposure and conditioning for Jaeger. We had a tradie in to fix the back window of the van so we had Jaeger in drop and on place around him to help condition him to more new people and noises. He did so well! He stayed in his drop and took treats throughout the session though did keep a watchful eye on the stranger.||Focus: Conditioning||A|
