    I "voted" YES - but am very inconsistent about it, I actually keep a better log in the summer when I train more and have less time for logs then during the winter months when I train sporadically. Probably because the winter training is just real basic stuff.

    One other thing I do is keep a log of the Hunt Test set ups/Quals that I run and any concepts that the dog(s) have an issue with, especially if it knocks us out. I hate training "after the test", but I need to remember what the hole in the program is and train for it for the "next time.

    I keep a log but sometimes will skip a few days if nothing significant happens. I for sure note each milestone in the training process. Sketches I don't do very well.

    If someone made a training log app for the iPhone I would buy it for sure!

    When I was obedience training a pair of German shepherds for a friend I kept very detailed logs on my laptop. I used a Windows Office program called OneNote that I love very much. I wrote down what happened after every training session and looked over it just before the next one. 15 min after to write and reflect, 5 minutes before to refresh.

    Now that I'm just working with my own dog I don't do as much. I am doing a lot more planning of what I'm going to work on before hand. Makes the training flow much smoother.

    I thought everyone used Evernote by now. Definitely the way to go.

    I don't keep a log, but should. I was going to start using Evernote when it came up here a couple of weeks ago, but then I read the permissions.
