Tui’s confidence is slowly growing while in different environments. He is still quite nervous in the classroom but is showing good progress. While at the pony club there were also 4 other dogs training nearby, he happily ignored all of them.
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: In his first session, the trainer took Tui for an adventure to the oval next door to test his confidenc in new environments and wide-open spaces. Tui stared exploring the oval straight away, sniffing the ground and walking around. He continued to be a little nervous but his confidence grew as the session progressed. While on this adventure the trainer also worked on his loose lead walking. Tui was initially quite strong on the lead but relaxed throughout the session.||Focus: Confidence||C+|
|Skill learnt: Sit||Comment: In his second session, Tui focused on further developing his skill sit while at the oval. We focused on this skill to further build his understanding of this skill. When focused Tui responds well to the sit cue but can struggle to hold duration depending on the surrounding environment. Tui initially struggled to respond to the sit cue, but with some guidance from the trainer he began to perform well.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his final session, Tui focused on further developing his skills place outside. We focused on this skill to challenge his knowledge surrounding place. Tui was initially hesitant to go onto the bed and hold duration. The trainer used slight lead pressure and encouragement to guide him on and off the bed. By the end of this session Tui had shown some improvement with his place but was still distracted.||Focus: Foundation||C|
