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: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For Poppy’s first session we practiced the skill of Loose lead outside with including sits and drops. She started with this skill first so the trainer could gain Poppy’s focus. Poppy had great focus outside although a couple times the trees were too high of a distraction, to help avoid this the trainer added more frequent drops near the trees so it gave her something else to focus on. By doing this Poppy had great focus with the trainer and finished the session exultantly. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For session two we practiced the skill of bow, throughout the session we focused on her duration. Poppy did extremely well but needed a lure for encouragement. Towards the end of the session she was doing really well and the lure was decreased. Focus: Duration B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For session three we practiced the skill of orbit. Poppy struggles with going backwards the whole way, to help this we created a barrier between the wall and chairs to create a one way path for her to create muscle memory. By doing this we did see improvement with the skill although she is still struggling. We used a lure the whole time and she followed it well. Focus: Foundation C
