This little man did so well today! We really worked his little mind and he made some awesome progress.
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!

|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: This first session was spent doing his loose lead walking outside. We went all over the property, even down the driveway to watch some cars go past. Jordan was quite intrigued by the cars so we used this opportunity to do some exposure. Each time he looked at the cars we marked “yes” and rewarded him. He walked nicely by the trainers side, checking in frequently.
|Skill learnt: Recall
|Comment: This session we worked on his recalls. We worked in the classroom with a lead attached but not holding it. We would wait for the little man to get distracted then move away, say his name and “come.” He did so well, sprinting towards the trainer for his treat. We made sure to also move backwards and be really exciting to encourage a quicker recall! Jordan seemed to really enjoy this, we also practiced his drops and sits, backing away from him and then recalling him to us.
|Skill learnt: Leave
|Comment: This last session focused on his “leave it” and drop skill. Jordan did really well with his “leave it,” we practiced outside with sheep poo, sticks and all sorts of distractions but also inside with food. We were able to throw a handful of food across the floor, say leave it and he completely ignored it, we rewarded heavily for such a good decision! We finished the session off with some drop repetitions! He is getting so good at these.
We recommend your next step should be…
A: Outstanding (90 – 100%) I understand my training, Neat & Complete! Ready to move on to higher difficulty & distraction
B: Great Work (80-89%) I mostly understand, Almost neat & complete! Needs practice in some areas. Mild distractions
C: Well Done (70-79%) Some good progress. Needs work, but on my way. Still learning. Low distractions.
D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
E: Unable to Progress. Needs major focus, seek further options to assist.
X: Not gradable, the focus was on Enrichment, Socialisation & Engagement.
