"Penny"

2021-05-18

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: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Penny was excited to get into training but this encouraged some lunging and pulling on lead so this was focused on first. Once a little more settled the trainer was very impressed with Penny's loose lead! She was focused on the trainer and walked nicely around the facility with dog and people distractions. Although she was a little big zig zaggy her overall engagement was good considering it was a new walking route. The trainer further tested this by doing random stops and turns which she responded well too. This session she was taking treats on and off. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building) Comment: We battled the Obstacle Course for this session and WOW she absolutely loved it! Her first few rounds were a bit slow as she was developing confidence throughout the obstacles but towards the end was zooming through, running with the trainer. She was a little confused with going through the tyre but overall did a great job. Focus: Confidence B+
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: For her last session the trainer worked on both her recall and fetch skill. Penny's motivator was physical praise (cuddles) therefore the trainer would throw the ball and when she had it would call her back (very enthusiastically). She dropped the ball and happily accepted the cuddles. The trainer did this a few times before she stopped chasing the ball so the trainer worked on engagement outside. Focus: Obedience C+
