Default Goal a Month!

Anyone interested in participating in a thread dedicated to pushing each other and keeping each other accountable for our dog goals?

I figure we could each pick a goal for our own dogs, could be training/behavior/anything really. And then just update each time we work on it?

Like my goal for January is to get Frodo out in public at least 3 times a week.

Anyone else interested?

I like the idea! I need to come up with some goals, though. I have some for Deke, but not the other dogs.

Good idea!

This month I want to get Chester's heel work re-polished since I slacked on it all last year and it went by the way-side.

ME! ME! ME! This is perfect because I just bought all the supplies to make a Training Chart for the dogs to keep me accountable on working with them more.

I love this idea and could absolutely come up with ideas for the pups. Yep.

My goal this month for Zuma is to get several sequences down for our freestyle routine before we go to Florida. Mostly so we don't embarrass ourselves too much.

Goal for Zinga is to work on our "go's" in agility. She's super handler orientated so I need to work on her staying on the line rather than popping out. So "go's" and lateral work.

Okay, I will tell. I went and got two mini wooden clipboards (one for each dog), and decorated them with pretty paper, mod podge, and stickers. Then, I wrote on a separate piece of small note paper what my goals were for each dog to work on. I left space next to the goal for dates that I have worked on it. I attached it by sticking it up in the clipboard thing.

I'm having a super hard time describing this! I will try and get some pictures of it tonight and post them up here. However, it's helping a ton because it is on the fridge so I can see it and I can see what I'm working on more than others, ect. It seems to be helping me a lot.

Meagan, any pictures? Sounds like a great idea!

I'm hoping for getting Deke at least 3 PA hours per week until mid-February, then upping it to at least 6 with more challenging criteria. I also want to work more on his stay, place, and retrieve.

I want to have Shadow playing with FitPaws products three times per week until February, and then up it to four. In March, I'll go to five and probably leave it there. I also want to start doing short, low height sequences with her again. She still wants to do agility.
