How long is a piece of string? Different dogs, different breeders, different ages, male or female, there are so many different variances here. Training is an ongoing process which you will enjoy throughout your dog’s life. All dogs and people learn at different rates and start with different experiences; therefore, there are no parameters and it is also dependent on your end goal, when will “trained” be, do you require to learn “just the basics” or achieve the “perfect” dog. It is a lifelong journey and will not happen without your influence. Your dog needs practice to continually do and get things right. “Trained” is what you determine, accept, promote and control. Training means consistency. So, while you will definitely see huge changes in your dog’s behaviour over the course of The Dog Man training sessions, it is then something that you will need to continue forward with.
