It was a great to have Mr Sampson back training today, he is showing great progress with his loose lead and loved learning the new skill hold. We suggest continuing to practise his loose lead under a range of distractions at home.
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, Sampson focused on further developing his skill loose lead in preparation for walking down the aisle. Sampson performed well, he was initially distracted but redirected his focus quickly. This session was conducted within the kennel walkway with the smell and noise of dogs around him.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his second session, we continued to work on his loose lead walking between chairs. Sampson showed good engagement and was not bothered by walking through the chairs. As he was performing so well the trainer increased the difficulty by adding distractions such as toys and food onto the chairs. He was initially looked at the objects but continued to perform well.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: As Sampson performed well throughout the day the trainer used his last session to learn a new trick called to hold. This skill included Sampson holding an object in his mouth. As this was his first session Sampson tried different behaviour when the pipe was presented. When he touched it with his nose the trainer marked and rewarded. As the session progressed he began to open his mouth onto the pipe. This is great progress for his first session on this skill.||Focus: Foundation||B|
