So sorry I made it tough But you've answered really well I think we all tend to overlook, when counting time spent on training, all the behave-as-a-good raised-dog stuff, like tonight with Ra Kismet, his first Christmas Party, lights disco, santa, LOL all new training for him and have to say, he was quite a hit!That's one tough question you have there.
Agility training is or one or two houres a week.
Trick training daily and depends on the progress on the day. Sessions are always short and are repeated.
Always 2 or more sessions a day... And that also depends on how many tricks there are on the to-do list..
sessions last to 10 minutes, though easy and quickly learned tricks only last up to 5 i believe.
But then there is all the other behave-as-a-good-reased-dog stuff, like walking on the leash without the pulling part. And these are a bit hard to count. So uhm i'm still not sure what to anser.
Can relate to it being hard to train both dogs. My older dog Zeus would, if I let him, train for ages, but he's getting on a bit so I have to take it easy with him. I often shut him inside, with a treat or two, after he's done his training. He's quite happy about that thank goodnessMuch like MaryK, my dog Toby loves to train for an hour, but Hannah needs them to be kept short, as in 5 or 10 minutes. Which makes it very hard to try and train both dogs.
LOL isn't that always the way Madeleine. Ra Kismet will do that to me, does all his tricks perfectly, until you go to video him, then he's as naughty as can beOffcourse I shouldn't have said how good went on the workshop.
Tonight we had one lesson from the same instructor and now Dazzle was way less concetrated.
So we did some very usefull foces exersices and this did help a lot.
Going to try to catch her focus now way more often, and add distractions so we improve on that bit
