2022-05-30

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: Paws Up (on object) Comment: For her first session today Rosie worked on her paws up skill in the classroom. To start with she lacked engagement and struggled to do much. After a couple minutes of play and cuddles she settled down and started to eat treats. We were able to lure her onto the wobble board and work on duration. She did really well and seemed to respond well to higher energy training! If she seems distracted the trainer simply moved around for a bit, encouraging her to follow and engage with them. If training feels stale the dog likely feels this too, it’s good to keep it fun and exciting! Focus: Confidence C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Rosie’s second session today was focused on her place training. We wanted to see how much she knew so we tested her with some distractions. We quickly figured out she isn’t quite ready for big distractions so we worked with fairly small trainer movements. Rosie showed some good understanding of the basics so we could work on sending and releasing to/from place. Keep working on this skill at home with mild distractions, keep increasing them slowly as she gets better! Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For her last session today Rosie worked on her drop skill. We did this in the classroom with lots of people distractions. We had trainers walking in and out, cleaning, rearranging etc. Rosie smashed this and gave the trainer some awesome engagement. She did break position a couple times if the trainer stepped back too far but she went back into position and the trainer came closer. Keep working on her drops, work on duration and distractions, one at a time until both improve. Then you can start putting them together! Focus: Distraction B
