[Training] Boring mundane training log stuff

"They" say it is good to keep a training log. I'm not so good about doing that, but here's a quick run-down of today's "training."

1:00 - 2:00 @ Dog Park - Grete was pretty social, but I did manage to magically get her running consecutive laps in a semi-figure eight shape. This was exciting because she kept going for 6-10 laps at almost top speed.

2:15 - 7:30 @ Bedroom - Alone with Kong. :(

8:45 - 9:40 @ Basement - Used the whole bowl (1 mug) of food for training! (Go me!) Over half was used for clicker training eye contact and heeling on both sides. (I still need to find a consistent word for heeling on the right side. I waffle between "close" and "other side.") The other half of the bowl was used for training "break" as a more concentrated high-drive release word similar to "go." (I think "OK" is going to get more associated with "all done" and will mean "ok. go be a dog.")

10:00 @ Kitchen - Um. She just ate and drank even more. Guess she was still hungry. Or she's worried about the fact that the cat has taken to eating her food. So much for using all of her kibble for training. :(
