Article: Dog Training: How often & for how long should you train your dog? (No replies)
“The more often you train your dog, the faster he will learn”. Apparently this mantra may not be the correct. Additionally, “the longer the training session the better” may also be a misnomer. People training dogs for obedience, service, police or military will often train a dog for at least one or more hours a day. Research shows that this may actually be detrimental to the dog’s learning process and retard the speed of learning instead of increasing it. In fact, dogs may actually learn better if they are not trained everyday for long periods!
