(raises hand)  I have  a training log that I kept for Sophie!!! :smile:  and I  add to it if we do a new task, like the fridge when we moved in here.  :smile:  Training logs are easy,  all OTers should do it.

I keep a tiny notebook and pen in my purse and make notes in it about what we are working on.

And someone posted in my FB SD group that the man won his case.  :???:

I commented, but chose to stay away from addressing the NSDR issue --I don't have the energy or desire to deal with the can of worms that could open at this time.

I keep a tiny notebook and pen in my purse and make notes in it about what we are working on.

I did that when Scooter was in training and then would transfer over everything every couple of days to the day planner type thing I was using.  I bought them (planners) in bulk (they were generic and didn't have the year on them) so I'd have space for training notes or anything else important.  Then started compiling a spreadsheet to calculate the exact number of hours spent on basic OB, intermediate, advanced, task work, and PA.

When I knew we were going to Korea, I bought some more to log all of the additional things he had to adapt to; I had never been where public transport was common let alone going to be my main mode of getting around.  His "training" (mainly walking down the aisle to an empty set of seats) was the shuttle bus from our housing area to base and then the various base buses so by the time I took him on Seoul buses, I had built up my confidence; he never lacked for it and took to it like a duck to water.
My relationship with my SD is like a marriage.  In fact, my two-legged husband calls Scooter "the other man".
