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: For Jamie’s first session we worked on his drop skill around high distractions. This skill is helpful to reduce his reactivity around other dogs. To begin with Jamie was over aroused and was reacting to other dogs in the classroom. There was also a tennis ball being bounced which he was trying to lunge for. After a few times of being told ‘uh uh’ he started to remain in his drop until released. The tennis ball does still prove to be a large distraction for Jamie as when just bouncing it once he was breaking half the time. The next step will be to continue testing Jamie’s drop duration while bouncing tennis balls. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For Jamie’s second session we worked on his Quoits skill. This skill is good as it allows Jamie to focus on a task. As Jamie is learning the skill, we started by getting him to just touch the rings. Jamie picked this up quickly so we progressed to getting him to biting the rings (so he can eventually hold it in his mouth). Jamie struggled more with this as he wasn’t too sure what was being asked, therefore we started to make the rings into a game and every time he would put his mouth on them, he would be rewarded. The next step for Jamie will be to continue getting him biting the rings. Focus: Foundation B
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: For Jamie’s last session we worked on his recall with RLGL. This skill is good as it allows for Jamie to switch from high energy to concentrated. To begin with Jamie was running towards the trainer but would then walk off. To stop this from occurring the trainer started to ask Jamie to drop when he reached her. While Jamie didn’t drop the first few times asked after a few uses of ‘Uh uh’ he started to. The next step for Jamie will be to continue working on his recall with RLGL. Focus: Repetition B
