Let’s talk record keeping.
How much data do you have about your dog?
Bloggers, is it just what you post publicly? How do you convert the blog format into data that works for you?
I keep two logs for Silas, both of which I started here and moved to pen-and-ink places. Most importantly, I have a food diary for him. It includes a daily list of every scrap and crumb that enters his mouth. “Piece of paper wrapper from my salmon patty” featured in a recent entry. Plus, I take note of when he throws up or seems nauseous or doesn’t want to eat a meal.
I’ve also been trying to keep better records of his training, but I’m struggling a bit to find a format that I like. What do you use?
