Yard/Obedience Training Session Question

Postby gjw » Fri Jun 14, 2019 9:13 pm

Hi all, quick question. I'm having a debate with a friend of mine, who claims you should yard/obedience train a young pup a good 30 to 45 minutes a day. I say, just a couple of short, 10 or 15 minute sessions a day.

What say you?

Thanks!

You are right. They have a better attention span with short sessions.
I just hate seeing birds die of natural causes unless I'm that natural cause.

My Griff is almost two years old and he will get bored at about ten minutes of obedience work. If it’s something that is fun like finding a hidden dummy or playing hide and seek with my kids then he can focus a lot longer. If you try and train longer than their attention span can handle then you really aren’t gaining anything.

15 Min is plenty, but if you keep a pup with you all the time they are learning all the time. Forrest
