Tessa did a great job back with training today! It didn't take long for her to settle back into the routine and start working on her skills under higher distractions.
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: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Tessa was very excitable in the kennels with a lot of jumping up. The trainer waited until she would sit before entering the kennel to keep up her manners. For her first session we worked on loose lead in the cattery. Tessa settled into the training very quickly and did a great job walking next to the trainer. We also did some verbal only drops while walking which she smashed though she did break early initially when the trainer walked on. After a few repetitions she was waiting for her release word before getting up.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For her second session we worked on her place skill. Tessa was on place between her first and second session and did a fantastic job by not breaking once with all the distractions in the room. For her place session we focused on sending her to place from a distance and having her stay on place during high energy movement distractions. She broke a little at the start but by the end was staying on place with the trainer jogging past, clapping and cajoling her.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For her last session we took Tessa outside to work on her loose lead alongside Zac. Initially she was very distracted by him and pulled quite a bit towards him. After a few minutes of training and redirecting her focus she settled down and by the end of the session she was walking quite close to Zac while still keeping her focus on the trainer. Well done Tessa!||Focus: Distraction||B|
