Dog training is all about repetition. Simple enough right?? Well, not really. The problem is that hardly any of us with any semblance of a modern lifestyle have enough disposable hours to do the large numbers of repetitions needed to get the dogs up to speed quickly. Repetition, repetition, repetition is the key.
How many reps are we talking about: well, on average it takes around 2,000 repetitions for a dog to actually learn and process a behavior. 2,000!! Most clients melt when they hear that, but it’s not an impossible task, and there are lots of tricks to get to that number quickly. One shortcut is to use Fidelio’s Fast Track program jump start things. Fast Track is essentially a “doggie boot camp” for your pup without having to send him/her away. We show up at your home two or three times a week for a month, train with lots of repetitions in your neighborhood, and give your dog a fantastic grounding and excellent foundation for the obedient life.
Fast Track isn’t the only way to speed things along though. We have lots of tricks to help with getting those repetitions in even if you decide to train with us for just a few session.
If you need a jump start on getting Fido up to speed take a look at our Fast Track program and give us a shout if it looks like we could help.
Pats to your dog for us!
