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: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: First session we worked on Sebs loose lead. Today we worked outside in the carpark around another dog as well as outside the kennels for dog distractions. In both environments Seb walked near the trainer, he did pull ahead at times and when he did this we stopped and began walking the other way. He struggles with his engagement which can make it a bit more of a challenge to redirect unwanted behaviours, utilise the engagement game (This game rewards them for looking/engaging with the trainer. To do this we throw a treat and they retrieve it. When they get the treat and look back to the trainer we say yes and throw another treat. This teaches them that by looking back to the trainer they get more rewards. ) at home to help building his engagement and work on his leash skills in familiar environments. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For his second session we worked on Sebs drop skill. This skill is something that can be used to regain focus and re direct unwanted behaviours. We worked in the classroom to reduce distraction level, there were some other dogs being trained near by but this is common throughout all his sessions. Seb really struggled with his drop today, not responding to the verbal cue or following treat lures. This is something to keep working on at home to build a strong foundation. Focus: Foundation D
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Final session we worked on Sebs place skill. We started off inside the classroom around other dogs being trained and did some short send tos to build his engagement and focus on us. Place is a strong skill for Seb and one he knows well and can be used at home and on walks to redirect behaviours. As he was doing quite well in the class we moved outside to continue working on this skill. Outside he was a bit distracted and broke esrly a handful of times but is showing great progress. Good work! Focus: Distraction B
