<---has actual written list
of tricks i want to teach.
I think many dogs can
learn more than 1 trick-in-progress at a time.
Usually, i am like Dilly, i also usually teach one trick at a time, but sometimes, i do teach two at a time---SO LONG AS THEY ARE NOT SIMILAR.
Like i could teach my dog to rollover in a blanket, and
to heel while looking up at me, in very same week. Actually, i think i really did do both of those in same week...ha.
but i would not try to teach
him to nod his head yes, and "show me your good side" (both are turn the head tricks--too similar) all in same week. Maybe a dog could
learn tricks that are similar in same week, but, i tend to space the tricks out a few weeks apart, if they seem too
similar in my mind.
lol, who knows,
maybe i am underestimating my dog.
maybe he could
distinguish similar tricks at same lesson, but, i've never tried it. Probably, I'M the one who would get confused!!
People smarter than i am, can probably easily teach multiple tricks all in same week.
typically, just as Buddy is finishing up one trick, i have already begun the next one, so there is always some overlap, even if i'm only doing one trick at a time. Sometimes i think the overlap helps him polish off the 'old' trick a lil faster, who knows.
