Zoltan has quickly been returning to his training mode each day school, with his engagement and obedience increasing back to his prior level. We did a mixture of work around dogs, making sure Zoltan's obedience was up to scratch, as well as having some fun and getting his brain going with some trick training.
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."
|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: Zoltan worked on his desensitization around other dogs, working up around the retreat nearby another boisterous dog. Positioned on 'place' just on the other side of the fence, Zoltan occasionally glanced at the other dog that was jumping up at the gate, although Zoltan refrained from giving him any attention. Despite his cheeky demeanour, stepping off before his release word, he increasingly remained engaged with his trainer, spending more time in the skill as the lesson progressed.
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: Transitioning to a long line, Zoltan focused on loose lead walking and recalls. Starting indoors for initial repetitions, we moved outside once he consistently walked by our side. While Zoltan occasionally lost engagement to sniff around, recalls were used to bring him back, reinforcing accountability by reeling him in if needed. As the lesson continued, Zoltan returned more consistently, albeit at his own leisurely pace.
|Skill learnt: Trick Training
|Comment: Zoltan dedicated part of the session to his 'TaDa!' skill, emphasizing confidence. Initially hesitant to put both paws on the trainer, he consistently placed one. With repetition, Zoltan began attempting to put his second paw up, initially showing a bit of nervousness with full body weight. However, as he realized the safety of the action, he increased the speed and frequency of this skill, showcasing growing confidence.
