TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING❓
Training, even good quality training, like everything, feeds into your dog’s Bucket (remember, both positive and negative interactions feed into the Bucket) - each dog will have their own limit and even a short training session can be too much if your dog has had many other interactions that have fed into their bucket.
Each dog will have their own capacity and it is up to you as their training partner, guide and guardian to recognise where their limits are.
👉Is my dog keen to engage?
👉Are they consistently focussed on me?
👉Are they driving into the game or exercise?
👉Do they bound back to me on recall?
👉Do the look like they are having a good time?
🚨If the answer is no, it is time to review your training game plan🚨
When it comes to training, little and often is the way to do it. 🙌
Aim to make training something that happens throughout the day, rather than having long, set sessions.
In the life of a Gamechanger, every moment is a chance to train, to bond, to connect, to learn with your dog. 💞
