Remi was such a brave boy today! He was very comfortable with the trainer but presented some nervousness within the stimulating classroom.
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: This session focused on Remi walking around the facility with confidence and engagement. The trainer noticed that he would pull if he was nervous or spooked by something. They spent a good majority of the session marking his engagement (when he looked at the trainer) as well as conditioning the carpark and classroom. Once he was more settled he was happily following along the trainer as well as showing off a big smile with their walk. Great progress bud!||Focus: Desensitisation||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: The classroom was very busy with 3 other trainers and dogs. Remi was more timid with the noisy environment so the trainer worked on conditioning people and the dogs on place. Once he settled they finished the session with sound exposure. This involved the trainer plying noises from her phone (dogs, cats, knocking and doorbells, cars, traffic, vacuum and babies). He responded very well to this training and was only jumpy with the sound of a vacuum. It would be good for Remi to further conditioning sounds when training and eating dinner||Focus: Desensitisation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: This session took place outside with people and dog distractions. Remi struggled to focus so the trainer did a few minutes of luring into the drop. After a few rounds he was more focused and responsive to the hand signal. From this point the trainer worked on his duration and distance within the distracting environment. He broke a handful of times but overall did really well! The trainer was able to create a metre distance step over him and roll onto the ground without him breaking. Amazing work buddy!||Focus: Foundation||B+|
|Skill learnt: Crate Training||Comment: Between sessions Remi was relaxing in crate in the classroom, further assisting with hun settling and conditioning the environment.||Focus: Duration||A+|
