Dog Drives and Board Frustration

πŸ›« πŸ• πŸ₯‰ πŸ₯ˆ πŸ₯‡ 🎬 πŸ”˜ πŸ—ƒοΈ πŸ—¨οΈ
I just realized why Echo is getting frustrated. The general advice has been not to use food right away because it can make it difficult to learn.Β 

I didn't consider that Echo will always choose a toy over food, no matter how hungry he is. One of his words is play and he hits it ALL THE
THE TIME and gets mad at the board.Β 

General advice might be better to delay using what your dog has a high drive for? Any opinions?Β 

Frustration and Over Excitable Barking

πŸ›« πŸ• πŸ₯‰ πŸ₯ˆ πŸ₯‡ 🎬 πŸ”˜ πŸ—ƒοΈ πŸ—¨οΈ
Any ideas for dogs that keep barking when they're frustrated because you didn't get it right and also when they're telling you you did? The body language changes so I know when I'm on the right track but my dog rarely barks - except with the board. Trying to figure out a way to reduce his stress level regarding the board so we can start moving on again.Β 

Every time I touch a button he starts barking now.Β 

I feel like the answer is an obvious one but figured I'd ask anyways.Β

Any idea how to tweak settings so the cam turns on faster? I'm noticing Echo hits things quickly and it doesn't catch everything.Β

Bad Memory and Diary App

I wanted to keep a log of Echo's usage but I keep forgetting what I need to write down/questions/etc. I want to be able to have all my info in one place so I can fill updates out easier and not forget them as soon as I press send πŸ˜‚

Anyways, found a custom form diary app that lets you input what questions to ask yourself at daily/weekly/etc intervals! Threw a quick one together to see how it would look and so far I quite like it!Β 

Fillable Form notification:

Finished form:

I like it because I can also add just plain notes/ratings/checklists/dropdown etc to ask myself stuff every day. Going to include just random progress notes and dates I post video updates/etc! Keep all my info in one spot.Β
