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 Mav’s first session we worked on his loose lead outside. This is good as it allows for walking without pulling. Maverick did really well and progressed well throughout the session. At the beginning of the session Mav was pulling and wasn’t paying attention to the trainer. To increase Mav’s engagement the trainer started to add in more turns and make then more obvious (wide steps to turn). If Mav continued walking after the trainer turned he was told ‘uh uh’ and the trainer would continue walking in the opposite direction until Mav turned aswell. When Mav did turn with the trainer he was told ‘yes’ and rewarded. Mav was also rewarded whenever he made eye contact with the trainer. By the end of the session Mav was showing good engagement. The next step for him will be to continue working on his loose lead outside to further increase his engagement. Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: For Mav’s Second session we worked on his recall. This is good to be able to get them to come back to you when needed. For the session we worked outside on the concrete. Mav did well throughout his session and progressed well. By the end of the session he was able to be recalled for 1 metre away. When he was recalled he was expected to sit in front of the trainer and was then rewarded. This is so Mav doesn’t come back and then run straight off. The next step for Mav will be to continue working on distance. Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Mav’s last session we worked on his drops. This is an important skill as it allows you to put them in a controlled position while you focus on other things. Mav struggled at times with his drops however towards the end got a lot better. He started off by not dropping when asked but with the use of ‘Uh uh’ he started to go into his drops. If we used ‘uh uh’ he was released straight after being put into his drop and then asked to drop again. The next step for Mav will be to continue working on his drops outside. Focus: Distraction B
