How does Day Training work?
How long will it take to train my dog?
Below, you’ll find a table with guidelines for the behaviors people usually want trained.
Your trainer may recommend something different based on your specific needs and your dog’s training history. But remember: dogs are living individuals with their own learning ability, emotions and motivations. We cannot guarantee that a result will be obtained after any specific amount of time.
