2022-03-25

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 Ollie’s first session we worked on his loose lead on the grass area outside. This is a good skill for Ollie as it allows you to take him on walks without him pulling. Ollie did really well throughout this session. He hardly pulled and when he did he would quickly correct himself after being told ‘uh uh’. Half way through the session Ollie started to become lazy and walk behind the trainer. To reduce this the trainer tried to make walking a bit more fun by adding in spins, this really helped him keep up the pace! Every lap the trainer would lure him around in his spin and then continue walking. Ollie started to wag his tail and walk next to the trainer once this was added in. The next step for Ollie will be to continue working on his loose lead adding in people distractions and continuing to use his ‘spin’ to keep him interested. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Ollie’s second session we worked on his Emergency drops. This is a good skill as you are able to place Ollie into a drop while still walking rather than having to stop to allow him to drop. Ollie started off really well and was dropping when asked. We were only walking a few steps forward after asking him to drop as he isn’t yet up to walking a distance. He would drop majority of the time when the trainer would take a few slow steps forward. The few times he didn’t drop he was told ‘uh uh’ and put into his drop. As the session got closer to the end Ollie’s drops started to become slower and he would often wait until the trainer stopped to drop. When this occurred he was only given a small treat and to encourage him to start dropping as the trainer walked again he was given a large reward when he did so. The next step for Ollie will be to continue working on his emergency drops at only a slow pace as Ollie hasn’t quiet mastered this speed yet. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Ollie’s last session we worked on his drop skill with RLGL. This is really good for Ollie as it gets him super riled up and then asks him to relax in his drop. Ollie started off really well and was dropping each time asked. We even waved the toy around while in his drop and he did relatively well. He did break a few times however as soon as he was told ‘uh uh’ he went back into his drop. Towards the end Ollie was super pooped and wasn’t even playing with the tug toy anymore, therefore we did a drop duration to finish off his session. He held his drop for the rest of the session despite all the distractions in the classroom! The next step for Ollie will be to continue working on his drop skill with RLGL. Focus: Distraction B+
