Jamie loves being involved with anything the trainers do! The trainers used this as an opportunity to redirect his behaviours from jumping to relaxing on place.
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: Place Training||Comment: Jamie was a little pocket rocket of excitement during his first training session! The trainer used this as an opportunity to rev Jamie up and settle Jamie down by sending to place. He responded really well to this and towards the end of the session he relaxed on place as the trainers worked with other dogs around him. It was really great to see Jamie relax and have fun around the other dogs.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: We continued encouraging Jamie to drop on the handlers left hand side when asked. We used the classroom wall to encourage him to drop without walking in front of the trainer or there to the side. He did very well with this skill although, the trainer noticed that he would drop on the side when using a hand signal, but would try to drop in the front when a verbal cue was used. The rest of the session focused on encouraging Jamie to drop on the side with the verbal cue.||Focus: Back to Basics||B+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: This session took place outside where Jamie was very distracted by the busy environment. Jamie can lack engagement which can make it difficult to redirect focus and listen to certain behaviours. The trainer started by playing engagement games within the distracting environments and once his focus was redirected she continued with loose lead training. He responded very well to the 'roll the food' game as in encouraged him to chase and return. I will send you an email for the engagement games to play with at home with Jamie.||Focus: Manners||B|
