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: Drop/ Down Comment: For his first session we worked on red light/green light drop. Jamie was enthusiastic at the start and was chasing both a tug and tennis ball. He would drop sometimes when asked but tended to be quite slow on it. Near the end of the session he did start to tire and wasn't interested in any toy besides the tennis ball so we finished with a drop duration. He needs more work in this skill to learn to drop quickly when asked to continue playing the game. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For his second session we worked on drops on the left hand side while walking. As Jamie struggles with this we used props (a bucket lid and then a hula hoop) to help use spatial pressure to keep Jamie from moving in front of the trainer. This worked really well wuth Jamie and he was able to drop at the side each time due to being blocked by the object. Using objects each time to block his advance will make sure he only gets repetitions of drop on the left side and will build a better habit for him. This also helps him to not go ahead of the trainer while walking as an added bonus! Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his last session we worked on loose lead outside with another dog as a distraction. Jamie did react once after the other dog started barking at a third dog but besides that he didn't do any barking which was great! He was still quite distracted by the other dog and would pull towards it (especially if it was moving) but listened well to the trainer to continue moving past it. Continuing on with his loose lead outside around other dogs during Dayschools will help to continue building his outside engagement and reduce his reactivity. Focus: Distraction B
