how many commands per training session??

Hi All,

I'm doing three 10min training sessions a day with my 3mth colliexspringer. How many commands would you recommend for each session? I currently revisit all the 'triained' commands at the beginning of the sessions to make her feel good, but wonder if this could then be too much with the other commands that I'm teaching - I'm not sure if when doing a new command i should dedicate a whole session to that for a few sessions to really imprint it, or to 'revise' taught commands and incorporate new commands all in one session...does that make sense Any advice appreciated

My advice, FWIW... teach only one new command in a session.

Review commands she already knows.
Set her up for total success.

Keep your sessions very short, maybe even less than 5 minutes.

And most of all, keep it positive and fun for her!
Watch her body language. If she is not bright, happy, tail wagging, and focused, then adjust what you are doing.

Your dog will be your best teacher, in terms of teaching you how to train.
Just learn to read her..

i review commands she knows first then when i feel they are solid ill introduce just one new command... so its not 1 new command every session its more like 1 new one a week.... and i train only when she is showing interest and usually not more than 5 -10 minutes, my pup is easily distracted.
ive had my puppy since she was 8 weeks and shes now 14 weeks. she has learned these commands sit, sit/stay, up, down, down/stay, paw, and touch. touch has really helped with the snapping and mouthing since my dog tends to lick after touching with her nose...

Many thanks - some useful tips here...think I am going to focus one session on one command and then finish on a high with the things she can already do to give her a boost! Luckily she enjoys the sessions so this may help her even more
