Remi struggled in the heat today so we did not push him too hard. He was good overall but very slow to complete tasks in comparison to week prior.
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: Place Training||Comment: Remis first session today was place training. Remi struggled to stay focused today so we went back to basics on this skill to set him up for success. We practiced repetitive send to and releases in between playing in a lovely pool of ice. Remis engagement got better as the session progress but definitely wasn't his usual enthusiastic self. I would like to see Remis marker worked on at home. Practice this whenever you have a spare moment, it's surprising how much of a difference a few minutes a day can make.||Focus: Repetition||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Remis second session we worked on his drop skill. As Remi was feeling a little flat in the heat we also took it very easy with this so we didn't over stress him. He did well this session, woth other dogs and humans as a distraction he was compliant with the skill even though a little slower. Remi enjoyed cooling off in the pool in between repitition. Focusing mainly on duration and distraction during this session to keep physical stimulation low. Again, this skill is a great and easy on to work on at home.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For Remis final session we introduced him to the trick "Bye-bye!" I noticed Remi has a good understand of the shake trick so dedicated to keep him comfortable we would have some fun I'm his final session. This trick is super cute and fun to show off to quests once they have a good understanding of it. Ask for the paw and before they touch your hand (pulling your hand away) Mark and reward. After doing this a few times start to cue the behaviour with "byebye", following with a mark and reward. Wont be long before you can raise your hand waving and say bye bye and have your dog waving back. Super cute! Remi was pretty hot by this session but the foundations for this skill have been introduced and can't wait to see them develop further. Well done Remi.||Focus: Foundation||D|
