Mav did good with his loose lead and absolutely smashed his sit today! He does still lose focus a little at the start of the training day but improves over time.
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: For his first session we worked in loose lead outside in the carpark. Mav was a bit cheeky in the first 5 minutes of this skill as he was pulling a bit ahead and wasn't very focused on the trainer. As the session progressed he did start to settle down and started performing at his usual better level. To help with his focus and increase his engagement we worked on sits while walking. Mav was good at going into sit if the trainer stopped but did struggle to go into sit if the trainer kept walking after asking for it. He would also become easily distracted from the trainer if another staff member walked by so increasing his engagement while around distractions will help with this skill.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Sit||Comment: For his second session we worked on pushing Mav's sit skill under distractions. Mav did so well with this! He stated in sit while the trainer ran around, threw tennis balls, skateboarded past and while playing dress up. The only fault was that he would sometimes slip into drop after a while bit we just moved him back into a sit and made sure to give him breaks from holding the sit every now and then. Very impressive work overall!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For his last session we started work on the bow skill for something different. Using a bed we lured his front paws off and then lured him as if into a drop. Mav was good at getting just his front paws off but did struggle to understand to start bending his back a bit. Working in the bare foundations of this skill at home will help him to click with the skill.||Focus: Foundation||C|
