On the Record: Data Collection & Record Keeping

How do you know when your dog is learning? How do you know if he's learning what you think you are teaching? How do you know where to go next with your training?

The answer to all of these questions is: Keep training records! Records keep us from guessing, show us when to raise criteria, allow us to find holes in our training, and force us to be objective about our training progress. Keeping records may be daunting at first, so in this Session we will look at simple ways to get you started!

In this Session, attendees will learn:

the importance of being prepared for a training session
the importance of keeping track of what happened in your training session
how to keep track of your training sessions
how to analyze your results and plan for your next training session
