How do you receive your training progress reports?

For those who have a dog out with a pro, particularly if you're some distance away and not working with him/her regularly, how do you keep tabs on how your dog is doing and what progress is being made?

None of the above. :wink:

First, I don't get a bill much less a status report. I just send money every month. If it is not enough, he'll tell me so. I know what he charges so, I'm generally on the money.

I get called about once a week but sometimes we don't talk dogs on the call.

I'll call him weekly and if the conversation turns to training, I may ask about mine.

Yes, I trust my Pro but if he ever called me and told me that my dogs was ready to be picked up, I would be angry! :evil: I already have a dog at home.

I don't feel I need to see a written status report, I evaluate the progress by ribbons in hand.

Luckly, I am only 120 miles from my dog so I try to see and handle him as much as I can. If I see something in training, I'll ask him about it then.
