Molly is a sweet girl, she performs very well with all of her general obedience but can struggle with confidence. We suggest focusing on this 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!

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her first session, Molly focused on further developing her skill 'drop' around cat distraction (utilizing the cattery). We focused on this skill to help Molly build her impulse control around cats, encouraging her to be calm. Molly performed very well, she was interested in the cats but continued to engage with her trainer and listen to the verbal cue ‘drop’. Molly can struggle with duration, but with some guidance she quickly began to maintain it well. We suggest continuing to practice this at home, when Molly is around the cat put on lead and practice her drops.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her second and third session, Molly focused on building her confidence with learning the new skill 'paws up'. Molly initially struggled to interacted with the step, the trainer used lots of treats and patience, which helped her to slowly place one paw onto the step. By the end of her second session, Molly was successfully placing her two front paws onto the step. As she progressed into the final session, Molly focused on building her confidence walking on and off the step. Molly performed very well, she was initially hesitant to walk off the step, but with some guidance she began to follow a lure. This lure was slowly faded as her confidence grew. The trainers hope to further challenge her with different objects in her next session. We suggest continuing to focus on confidence building at home.||Focus: Repetition||B|

D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
