Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: During his first training session, we focused on improving his drop durations while I moved around him in the car park, where there were some staff distractions. He did well, only breaking position a couple of times. To further enhance this skill, I recommend that you continue practicing at home and predictable environments with low to mild distractions. Consistent effort and patience will help Ozzie master this skill. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: This session focused on his loose lead walking. We practiced this skill in various settings, including the classroom, car park, near the office, and around the handyman's workshop. Ozzie demonstrated excellent engagement with the trainer, maintaining focus and attention while mostly ignoring other people. He would watch them occasionally but check in frequently with the trainer voluntarily and when asked. Keep working on this in predictable environments, making sure to be consistent with your handling and not putting tension on the lead. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: In our last session, Ozzie worked on his recalls and the middle position in the training yard with a long line. Initially, he was distracted by grass scents but improved his focus throughout. It's worth noting that Ozzie seemed to really like the middle position, making it a useful control option. We recommend using it consistently to help him feel more comfortable when out in public! Focus: Distraction B

We recommend your next step should be…
