Jamie performed well today, he was initially a little reactive but overcame this very well. The trainer was impressed with how well he listened when very distracted by other dogs. Keep up the great work at home.
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 his first session, Jamie focused on further developing his skill drop while outside in the carpark and classroom with other dogs. Jamie performed well, while in the carpark he was initially distracted but redirected his focus well. During this session another dog walked pasted him, this caused Jamie to react and break drop. However, when he began to hold duration the trainer realised him and he continued to respond to the verbal cue drop despite being distracted. When entering the classroom there were multiple dogs, Jamie did not react and listened to the drop command.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Jamie focused on further developing his skill drop while outside, utilising the training game red light, green light. We focused on this skill to proof Jamie's drop while he is excited. Jamie performed well, he loves to play but struggled to drop when playing. He progressed well throughout the session, he began listening to the drop command while playing. We suggest continuing to practise this at home to help further develop this skill.||Focus: Obedience||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his final session, Jamie focused on further developing his skill place within the classroom with his biggest distractions (tennis balls). We focused on this skill to proof his place and build his impulse control. Jamie performed well, he did break place several times initially when the ball rolled pasted him. However, as the session progressed he began to maintain it well. We suggest continuing to use his toys as distractions to develop his impulse control.||Focus: Distraction||B|
