We loved having Rosie training with us today, she is such a sweet girl who loves her cuddles and training. When Rosie is excited or jumping at home we would recommend asking for a drop, substituting an unwanted behaviour (jumping) with a more beneficial behaviour (drop).
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: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her first session, Rosie focused on further developing her skill 'drop' with repetitions under distractions. We focused on this skill to build her impulse control surrounding jumping. Rosie performed very well, she was initially excited and struggled to maintain drop, but with some guidance she began to maintain it well. The trainer was able to approach Rosie while excited and making high pitched noses while she remained in drop. We suggest practising this skill at home, using as an alternative to jumping.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her second session, Rosie focused on further developing her skill 'drop' while excited, utilizing the training exercise red light green light. We focused on this skill to help proof her drop while exited. Rosie performed well, she loves playing with her ball, but continues to respond to the verbal cue 'drop'. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Obedience||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her final session, Rosie focused on further developing her skill 'pull on a rope’. We focused on this skill to build engagement and have fun. Rosie performed very well, she interacted with the rope straight away, touching it with her nose. With some guidance she quickly began to open her mouth onto the rope and pull. She successfully pulled the rope out of the trainers hands several times.||Focus: Foundation||A|
