Zolli had some fun working on her obedience in the classroom with a new trainer. She wasn't taking any treats today so we adapted by using a bit of play to help her learn.
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: Zolli started her day working on her loose lead as we made our way down to the classroom. Zolli found it challenging to give her engagement to her trainer as this new environment is so new and exciting to her. Once in the classroom,Zolli was more willing to give her attention to the trainer. Zolli was more interested in going her own direction rather than following her trainer. After a bit of repetition we managed to get Zolli's attention and started working on the fundementals of the skill.||Focus: Conditioning||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Zolli worked on this skill in the classroom. Zolli still want taking any treats throughout this lesson, so we used a bit of lead guidance to show Zolli what we wanted her to do. After a bit of repetition, Zolli was happy to hop up on the bed. She was quick to try and step off immediately but after a bit of time working on the skill, Zolli was happier to stay on the bed until her release word break||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Zolli finished the day working on her drop. She had a challenging time with her engagement throughout this whole lesson. We used a toy to lure Zolli down into position as she still wasn't interest in any food. Once in the drop we released her and let her play for a little but before going back into her drop. With a bit of repetition we got Zolli following the toy into a drop more consistently.||Focus: Repetition||C|

X: Not gradable, the focus was on Enrichment, Socialisation & Engagement.
