Robbie performed very well today, he is progressing very well with all of his skills. Keep up the great work, remembering to use 'spin' and 'drop' if he is struggling to remain engaged.
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: In his first session, Robbie focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead ' walking with repetitions under distractions (training outside around the gardeners). Robbie was initially interested with the gardeners but remained engaged with his trainer. The trainer was very impressed with Robbie's engagement and performance throughout this session despite the high distraction. The trainer used 'drop' and 'spin' to help maintain his engagement.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his second session, Robbie focused on further developing his skill 'roll over' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to challenge Robbie with a complex skill. Robbie performed well, he follows the lure well but can struggle to roll over. With some guidance, he began to roll over onto his back, then over to the other side. We suggest continuing to practise the skill at home to help Robbie build his confidence with rolling over.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his final session, Robbie focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with duration under distractions (human, dog and ball movement). We focused on this skill as Robbie has been struggling with duration in drop. Robbie initially broke drop twice when the trainer was excited and used a high pitched voice. But with some guidance he quickly began to remain in drop. Next time er would like to see Robbie not break despite distractions. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home, in a variety of different environments.||Focus: Distraction||B|
