Lochie performed very well today, he was initially over excited and struggled to settle, but calmed down as the day progressed.
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: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Lochie focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead ' walking with repetitions under distraction (training outside). We focused on this skill to reduce his challenging behaviour of pulling. Lochie was initially distracted by the environment and struggled to engage with his trainer. But, with some guidance he slowly began to redirect his focus. Once he was engaged, Lochie performed well, he can struggle when additional distractions are added, including people, dogs or cars. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Crate Training||Comment: In his second session, Lochie focused on further developing his understanding of the skill 'crate' with duration. We focused on this skill to help reduce his rushing out of the crate. Lochie performed very well, he remained in the crate while the door was open when being rewarded. The rewards were slowly reduced throughout the session. Lochie responds well to the release word ' break' to realise him from the crate. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Duration||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final session, the trainer focused on introducing Lochie to the new skill 'give' with repetitions. We focused on this skill as a safety aspect of play. The trainer began with conditioning 'give' with food, to reinforce 'give' as a positive command and to reinforce it means treats. After several minutes the trainer began to play with Lochie, randomly using the 'give' command, with treats Lochie will drop the toy for the treat. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
