What Our Members Thought:
I'm So Excited
Excellent Jo, really enjoyed it. I found the IMDT approx 8 years ago and started my journey with them - I've met some lovely people, but not gundog related, so now I'm so excited to have found you and LWDG. Obviously we are restricted now with covid, but I really look forward to meeting you and other ladies, watching your other masterclasses and generally having fun. As I mentioned in my previous feedback I have 6 dogs, soon to have 7 as I'm expecting a litter of labradors next week and they are all so different. I certainly have a list as you suggested of and will be happy for what I have achieved and be working on some aspects with my youngster - using your training journal and also with the great suggestions. There is always room for improvement!
I'm Actually Quite Proud
Thank you so much for this masterclass. I'm quite new to the LWDG but loving everything about it. I am very guilty of always having a negative view and dwelling on the things that have gone wrong but this class has made me stop and think, actually I haven't done too badly with my dog this year.. We achieved the KC working gundog certificate on dummies, entered our first ever working test, are just about to complete our first season picking up.. I'm actually quite proud. Thank you for this
The encouragement to be extremely honest in my review of this year’s training and accomplishments. It also made me feel very inspired to go forth and train, train TRAIN !
As someone who has self doubts about her training ability by having you just talk you through making you see what you have achieved not the negatives really helped and not comparing with other people's ability and training achievements
Thank You For Your Encouragement and Wisdom
Amazing masterclass Jo. Good to have the structure explained so well and how to plan ahead as well as celebrating even small wins. Looking forward to receiving my planner and achieving great things with my young dog in the year ahead. Thank you for your encouragement and wisdom .
Positive and Constructive
I bought a magic monthly planner in 2020 and have started doing reflections more often. It helps so much, I can see how our training is progressing and it helps me think about what each dog needs from me as we progress. I watched this master class as I was about to sit down to start my reflection for 2020 and planning for 2021. The masterclass was such a positive and constructive way to start thinking about the year ahead. Thanks for the great class as usual!
Focusing on The Good Parts
I love that it started with focusing on the good parts. Made me think constructive when I came to the parts that didn't work. I now have a plan for the stop cue that I haven't managed to teach my dog for his five years of life, but I still feel hopefull! It's only behavouir as Karen Pryor puts it!
I Now Have A Plan For The Future
I need to remember what is going well, I tend to focus on what's not going well. I now have a structure to help me reflect and plan for the future. I now know I am doing a great job with my home bred HPR who is the first dog I have started to train as a working gundog. I'm also proud that I facilitate group sessions of amateurs with trainers and am helping others with my North West Italian Spinone Gundog Training Group that will be 5 years old in April 2021.
Really Inspiring and Motivational
Just loving all these masterclasses. New to the group I am binge watching them big time!!! This masterclass gives such a positive approach to review what you have achieved and what to work on moving forward. Loved listening to this, Jo speaks so much sense. Really inspiring and motivational, well worth watching. Thank you!
I Really Appreciate the Non Judgemental Attitude The Group Has
Simply the idea of reflecting on the year is an important step and acknowledging the good and not so good with your training is hugely beneficial. I liked the positivity as I would normally look at what I had not achieved and feel that I had failed. I really appreciate the non judgmental attitude the group has . Thank you
