So you are keen on performance tracking. You are ready to take your training and competitive game to the next level. You are excited about getting addicted to and harnessing laser focus in your training. Where do you start?
An object at rest remains at rest unless acted upon by a force. This is just as true for your motivation in training and competing as it is in physics – whether that is training at all or unlocking that next level in you and your dog.
Training can often become stagnant – same sessions, routines, strengths, and weaknesses – and, without the right tools, we won’t even acknowledge the strengths anyway. Our training won’t move unless we apply some force to make a change.
There are two main types of “force” that can change where you are, change your training habits:
- Intrinsic force – Force that comes from enjoyment of an activity and exists within the individual rather than relying on external pressures. We all love training agility BUT this can only continue if you are able to acknowledge what’s going right, have clear direction and know how far you have come.
- Extrinsic force – Force that comes from seeking an external reward or avoiding punishment. This one is only going to happen if you have a record-keeping system that acknowledges progress and performance rather than straight results – like an objective coach.
Here’s the thing, performance tracking does all of the above and sends you into a spiral of positivity and improvement – BUT – we hear you saying any and all of the following:
“I tried recording. I recorded them on a piece of paper and nothing happened”
“I never stick at record-keeping – it just isn’t rewarding for me”
“Oh I record keep – I have piles and piles of paper, videos on my camera, photos.. well.. everywhere and some notebooks somewhere.”
Problem solved – introducing Dogtrackr
We know it’s difficult, we know it has not been rewarding, and we know that, if not done the right way, it can actually be detrimental to improvement! Performance tracking is going to be life changing to your training – but how can you harness it?
