Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For the first session the trainer worked a bit on her loose lead walking. However since she has never been here before the trainer wasn’t to big on the obedience side of loose lead walking but rather just wanted peach to explore the location, before we expect too much work out of peach we need to build a positive association with both the space she is working in as well as the person she is working with. So this session was filled with lots of treat rewards for staying close and turning with the trainer but she was also rewarded for things such as exploring things or checking out something that may have spooked her a little bit, this is a great way to get the most out of our dog because when they are happy to train it makes the process not only easier but quicker as well! Awesome first session from peach! Focus: Foundation C
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For her second session the trainer worked on her drop skill. Since she loved it so much outside on the grass the trainer decided to continue the training out here, sometimes it can be an overly distracting environment for dogs however peach did fantastic today here! Since she is still learning the trainer just worked on luring her into her drops however they also took this opportunity to make luring fun! The more fun we can make a technique or a skill the more likely it is our dogs will want to do it! To make luring fun the trainer simply lured peach around a little bit in circles, fast, slow, into a spin and other things, just before asking her to drop! This makes the training fun but also helps strengthen her luring technique knocking out two birds with one stone! Focus: Repetition C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For her last skill the trainer worked on her place skill! Like her drops this was done out on the grass area as she really seemed to love it out here today! Just like her drop the trainer was luring her on to the place bed however during this session she showed so much improvement that the trainer was able to actually start teaching her the verbal command! It’s important to remember that we don’t name a skill until the dog is being successful in this skill 4/5 times (or about 85%) the trainer also continued to lure her in fun ways as well! Along with all the skills she was also exposed to a bunch of different things today including new textures such as concrete, rock, gravel, wood, bark chips and many more! Not only that but sound as well as we have a groundsman who is always fixing something up with tools! She also met every single staff member and got a big cuddle from them to really make her feel right at home! The trainer had an absolute blast with her today and while she is only a puppy they can see the potential that she has just after this single day! We highly recommend once puppy school is over coming to join our first timers Saturday morning group or one of our many trick training classes or if you’re looking for more personalised advise and guidance we can also offer you a private one-on-one session with one of our trainers where we can walk you through everything there is to know about training for a good domestic dog! Focus: Foundation C+
