2022-07-19

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: Sit Comment: For his first session today Oscar worked on some red-light-green-light sits at the pony club next door. This means that we get him all razzed up through play and then ask for a skill. Oscar absolutely smashed this and seemed to really enjoy it as well. We would run around encouraging play which he loved and then we would suddenly stop and say “sit.” Oscar was really engaged with the trainer and proved this even more by listening each time we asked for sit. Keep working on this at home it’s a great way to develop impulse control. Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: For his second session today Oscar worked some more at the pony club. We focused on his recalls on a normal length lead. We would wait for him to get distracted by something nice smelling and then call him. He did really well with this but was obviously tired from his first session with all the playing. He got slower and slower each repetition but came to the trainer every time. Oscar absolutely smashed his recalls today, hopefully he goes home nice and tired today after all the exercise! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Oscars last session today focused on his drop skill for greetings. We had him in a drop position and got a couple different trainers to approach. If he broke position they stepped back and then we repeated. Oscar smashed this skill and even let the other trainer approach, pat him and walk away. Oscar is such a softie and all the trainers absolutely love him! Keep working on his drops, they’re a great way to control excitement in new situations. Focus: Distraction B
