Figure 1. Pretty straightforward. Simply the average number of training sessions each day by owners. Pretty consistent overall!
Figure 2: The total training sessions each day where the dog showed improvement in the skill being taught. I was a bit surprised as I thought there would be an initial spike of improvement, then back to baseline. But it’s pretty consistent anyway… around 2 out of 3 sessions, the dog improved. Awesome!!!!
Figure 3: I really just wanted a general idea for how easy it was to remember each day. If you had a hard time remembering, you probably need to adjust triggers!
Figure 4. The average number of total minutes trained by owners. Some of these numbers are a bit skewed by a few owners who spent 15-20min training. But look at the improvement with an average of 8-9min per day!
Figure 5. Percentage of owners who remembered to reward themselves for completing the training each day. These numbers may not be 100% accurate because the question asked for a yes/no answer for the whole day instead of per 2 minute session. Some owners answered for each session, for example “ynn”. As long as the owner remembered one time, I considered it a YES. But it’s possible that those who answered just “n” for the entire day may have remembered once or twice but thought that should be a “no”. Convoluted, sorry. I should have asked the question better. Anyway, awesome increase! I think this part is so important
