So I finally found the place to calibrate the ST

Friday, October 25, 2013

Wow wee, I finally found a place to calibrate the Spark Tracker. I guess I should have looked around more carefully on that page. hee hee Anyways I calibrated my morning walk at 3.52 miles in 71 mins. instead of the 3.27 it was showing. I also re-calibrated some other walks and it should start to learn my pace. I feel sort of stupid now but not finding this page sooner. I should have known Spark would come up with something like this. So no more complaining about it not being accurate until I give a few days to readjust to my pace. This was just about the .30 miles I keep being shorted. I'll let you all know in a few days how the tracker is doing.

Purchased Phred a nice doggy bed for living room. He stays off the couches when no one is around or sitting on them. The min. you sit he wants to jump up. After being told "NO" a dozen or so times yesterday I had to grab him (and he growled at me) and lightly tap his bottom. It's just what he does if he doesn't get his way. We are not calling the bed a bed, but his "rest" place. Since he sleeps with Jeff and knows what a bed is this would just confuse this dog. WE want to be able to say a one word command when he tries to get on the couches like "NO, Phred rest". He plays dumb but he is smarter than he acts, just takes him a bit of time to catch one to things or he is dumb or stubborn or all of the above. lol

Been very overcast and cool the last couple of days high 60's/low 70;s. Is suppose to warm up again starting tomorrow and be in the low 80's for a couple of days. Looks like it will nice weather for Halloween.

    emoticon finding out how to calibrate your Tracker!
The poodle in Phred will out think you and the Jack Russell will be incredibly strong willed. You will have to show him who is boss for sure and that his place is on the doggy bed, not the furniture. All I can say is good luck with it, better you than me!!

  good luck on training the dog. they can be very stubborn, hoping you quit trying to make them do what they don't want to do.

    I didn't even think about the calibration site. I did know of it but haven't done anything with it as I don't have anything to compare it with!! Glad you reminded me!!
