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: For his first session we worked on his drops up near the outdoor kennel runs. This provided dog and people distractions. He held his drop position well but lacked engagement, meaning he was fixated on the dogs/people and not giving the trainer as much eye contact as we would have liked. He still held his position though, meaning he was able to listen to the trainer still. To help him out a little bit we did create some distance and slowly decreased it. We weren’t too concerned with the lack of engagement since he was still listening to his skills and just watching the dogs and staff go about their things. We also made sure to keep that lead nice and loose so he didn’t feel any unwanted pressure! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: This session we worked on his loose lead around some BIG distractions. We walked up and down the carpark while some dogs were enjoying a run around in the paddock. This provided really good distractions for Ozzie as the dogs were very high energy and sometimes even barking at him from a distance. Again Ozzie’s engagement could have been better but he still followed the trainer nicely and didn’t pull on the lead, this is really good for him. Keep building that engagement so he can learn to focus on you more than his environment! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: For the last session today we worked on his sit and middles around people distractions. We started near the office and had some staff members come out and walk around us (at a safe distance). He did really well, he would look at them but then look back to his trainer! To finish the session off we moved to the classroom where there were two other trainers working other dogs. Ozzie did so well to remain focused on his trainer and even enjoyed some tug to finish off his day! Focus: Conditioning B+
