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: For his first session we worked on drops with duration and movement distractions. Rupert does well with small movement but can tend to break when the trainer moves too far away. He does show some leash reactivity when going back into drop so we took it slow and helped him learn to move with the lead instead of against it. He did much better after this but does still need some work as he does panic a little when he feels the lead pull. Building up his confidence will also help with this. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For his second session we worked on his place skill. Rupert shows great base knowledge of this skill and was able to be sent to place from a short distance. He settles himself well on the bed so we started pushing with distractions. He did initially break for movement and a squeaky toy but did not break for the tennis ball. By the end of the session he was staying on place with all of these distractions. At home keep building the distraction levels as this is a great skill for him to fall back on when he is nervous in the classroom. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his last session we worked on loose lead in the classroom. By this point of the day there were a few more staff in the room so he was very distracted and wanted to go and see everyone. His engagement while walking was very poor and he kept lagging behind and/or stopping. Practice loose lead in a low distraction environment with a focus on engagement from him. Focus: Back to Basics C
