Ozzie had fun today, working with a trainer he hasn't worked with before. Ozzie was a very sweet boy throughout the day, finding it challenging to focus with the new person, but loving a good chest scratch as we got to know each other. As we got to the end of the day, Ozzie was engaging really well with the trainer, becoming friends.
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: Drop/ Down||Comment: Ozzie worked on his drop outside, focusing on engaging with his new trainer. Ozzie happily made his way outside, although pulling on his way down to the car park. Once down in the car park, Ozzie quickly went into his drop when asked. He got up a few times before his release but spent the majority of the lesson in the skill. As the lesson went on, Ozzie's focus with his new trainer improved, becoming more attentive to his requests.||Focus: Conditioning||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Ozzie worked on the classroom with his new trainer around another trainer he didn't know well. We did some quick repetitions to burn his energy as well as to have some fun to build a bond with him. Ozzie quickly hopped on and off the bed when asked, engaging with his trainer well. His focus shifted from his trainer to other dogs around the area, although continuing his skills without issue. He stepped off the bed before his release Once or twice but spent almost the whole lesson listening to his new trainer.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Ozzie worked on his loose lead around his usual trainer Devon, using her as a distraction. Ozzie fixated on her a bit at the start of the lesson, wanting to pull to get to her. As we continued walking, Ozzie started to follow his new trainer. As we continued walking, Ozzie's engagement improved as he stayed by his trainer's side. At this point, we went outside to continue the lesson. Once outside Ozzie stopped taking treats as he was quite distracted. We put in some more repetitions, with Ozzie finishing the lesson strongly.||Focus: Distraction||B|
