Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For his first session today the trainer took woody out for a little product photo shoot! This wasn’t just a bit of fun it was a test of his drops, he had to hold a nice position while the trainer stacked object near and on him for the photo shoot! He held nice and still and the trainer was even able to manipulate his eye lines (where he was looking) as well! This didn’t take very long however so to prep him for the rest of the day the trainer did some hoop training with him! Today the trainer was able to fully get rid of the tower of buckets and was holding the hoop freely on it own and Woody was successfully hitting the target with ease! The trainer wants to get to a point where they are able to just pick up the hoop and present it to Woody and he will attempt to jump through! Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: The trainer thought it best to try do something newer with woody since he had been doing so well I’m his previous session! They worked on a little of his “cone weave” trick skill. To do this they had two place beds to give a solid location that woody was heading too, they then filled the space between the beds with a row of cones. He is still having to be lured through the cones the right way however the trainer is confident he is making progress as his speed significantly increased as the session went on. While being fully successful in a day is great we need to challenge and push Woody with newer and newer skills so he can remain consistent in how easy his is to train. Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For his final session today the trainer took woody into the play pen and did another off lead session this time focusing around place! The pet resort is super busy at the moment so the trainer was able to use this to their advantage as a distraction for Woody. However like usual he couldn’t care less, he was so focused and driven to train he did every single thing the trainer asked of him. He was able to stay on place for long durations and with high distractions (the trainer was tossing toys right past him!) they are extremely impressed with how easy Woody can be trainer and how simple it is to increase his criteria, we seriously recommend group classes with him as this will be his next big challenge. Focus: Distraction A+

We recommend your next step should be…
