One of the fundamentals of successful dog training isn’t just about teaching the task, in my opinion the CONSISTENCY of going over what has been learned is KEY to having a well-mannered dog. Let’s use math as an example. When you first learned fractions in school it was probably difficult, but as you continued to practice problem solving day after day it became easier and faster for you to answer the problems.
Now what happened when you stopped having to use fractions and 2 years down the road you had to solve a problem involving them again? It probably took you a while to figure out the answer OR you forgot completely right? This is the same with your dog. If you fail to stay consistent with going over what the dog has learned, it will become harder for them to remember what the command or behavior it was that they were taught. This is why I always tell my clients that once the dog has become accustomed to learning a task or new behavior after daily trials for several weeks, it’s imperative that they at least go over the exercises once a week so it stays fresh within the Dogs brain. I am doing this with @theclarkstar since I am guilty of stepping away from certain commands for too long. In the video I am going over his sit-stay and building his threshold for how long he stays in that position before being released. This will come into play when you want your dog to stay put even when you leave a room or go around a corner. More videos to come 👌
