It was great to see Miss Millie today. She did display some nervous behaviors but with treats and some guidance from her trainer she began to come out of her shell. Keep pushing her confidence at home.
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 her first session, Millie focused on further developing her skill 'loose lead walking' within a low distracting environment. We focused on this skill to build engagement and reduce her challenging behaviour of pulling. This session was completed inside the classroom, as the outside distractions were too high for Millie. Initially Millie was hesitant to engage with her trainer, but with some guidance she slowly began to redirect her focus. Once engaged Millie can still be cautious of her environment but walks nicely. We suggest practising this skill at home in a low distracting room or walkway in the house, focusing on engagement.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her second session, Millie focused on building her confidence though a new skill 'touch'. This session was completed in the classroom while 2 other dogs were in close proximity. Millie struggled during this session, she was displaying nervous behaviours and showed no engagement with her trainer. The trainer spent some time conditioning the reward marker ‘yes’ wo help Millie relax within the classroom. Millie slowly began to touch the target stick with her nose. We suggest continuing to build her confidence while at home.||Focus: Foundation||D|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In her third session, Millie focused on remaining calm and relaxed around dogs while on 'place'. We focused on this to help reduce her canine reactivity. Millie performed very well, she did not break place despite 3 dogs training within the classroom. Millie performed very well, she ignored all the dogs and showed no signs of reactivity.||Focus: Conditioning||A|
