  • 1.  Sharing Training Documentation

    Posted 16 days ago
    Good afternoon, Everyone.

    We received a small grant to hire a p/t dog trainer to help work with some of our more challenged dogs and to hold group training classes to help keep training consistent.

    We are working with a trainer who may be able to help us outside of her business and we are working on the details. 
    She's invited us to bring some of our dogs to her group training classes, in the meantime.

    As we need to document training  for the dogs, how is everyone doing this? Old school on paper? Spreadsheets? ect...
    Trainings would take place at the shelter and potentially at the offsite training group. 

    Ideally, the trainer(s) and volunteers will document their sessions and each training session would be sharable so we can track behavior and progress. 

    Additionally, we will be using the documentation/data for our grant reporting. 

    Does this make sense? 

    Thank you for your help!

    We tried multiple methods for exactly this and a shared google doc ended up working out the best!

    Thank you, Denise!
    I was wondering if Google Docs would work!

    Hello! We are a small shelter focused on dog behavior reward-based and we have a TON of documents, so not sure what specifically you are looking for, but we create protocols for each dog and our volunteers work and fill different sheets as we are also do a lot of enrichment activities, so I wasn't sure what kind of protocols you need, but we are happy to share!

    Ooo I would love to see some examples of your protocols and then what people fill out after working with the dog.  If emailing is easier than uploading, my email is: animalbehavior@greenvillehumane.com
    Thank you so much!!

    Karinna,

    I volunteer at my local shelter on Saturdays with a couple of others.  I would also love to see some of your protocols and documents as well!!  Would you kindly share with me at reginric@yahoo.com

    Thank you so much, all of these wonderful shelter dogs deserve a chance.
