Lochie performed very well today, he is a happy boy who loves his training. He is progressing very well with all of his skills, the trainers were very impressed with how quickly he learnt the new skill ‘leave it’.
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: Place Training||Comment: In his first session, Lochie focused on further developing his skill 'place ' under high distractions (food, ball and human movement). We focused on this skill to build his impulse control surrounding food and people. Lochie performed very well, he did not break place despite the high distractions. Next time we hope to challenge him further with distractions and distance. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his second session, Lochie focused on learning the new skill 'leave it' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this new skill as a safety skill. Lochie performed very well, he was initially very interested in the treats but quickly began to ignore them as this unlocked more treats. Lochie performed so well the trainer began to add the verbal cue 'leave it'. Next time we would like to begin moving the treats to the floor while Lochie continues to perform so well. We suggest continuing practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his final session, Lochie focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead walking' with repetitions under high distraction (another dog training in close proximity). We focused on this skill to help build engagement and proof his loose lead walking. Lochie was initially distracted by the environment, but with some guidance he quickly began to ignore all external distractions and show great engagement with his trainer. We suggest continuing to practise this skill in a low distracting environment at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
