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!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Pickle pants started off his day with his ‘emergency drop’ skill. He performed well when the trainer was walking, but once they picked up the speed, Pickle was either very slow to drop or wouldn’t drop at all, he would keep following behind. The trainer then began to only reward him for the quick drops, and use his non-reward marker for the slower ones and try again. We want for Pickle to be able to drop quick no matter what pace the trainer is doing. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Next up, Pickle worked on his ‘place’ skill with distractions. The trainer worked on sending him to and from place with distractions, but also distractions while he is on place. Pickle did well at first with plates of food as his distraction, but once toys were involved it was a bit harder for him to resist. He didn’t attempt to go for them, but he would walk much slower to place and often just stay staring at them before getting onto the bed. Once he was on place, if the trainer made big sounds and sudden movements, he broke a couple times. The trainer made sure to use “ah ah” and he would jump back on. We want Pickle to be able to resist these distractions with ease in the future and not be so tempted to break. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: To end the day, Pickle practiced his ‘bubbles’ skill. He is doing very well and is progressing more! Although today, he was a bit funny and would instead step on and in the water bowl, but once the trainer put a treat in the bowl to entice him, he performed wonderfully. There were some blows that were less than a second, so duration is something to focus on. Good work Mr Pickle! Focus: Duration A
