Default Train too much and the dog won't remember

Very interesting article on what may affect how much of its training a dog might remember and why:

Great article I know when I have a cello lesson (at age 67) that there are sometimes when after 30 minutes I have to stop. My brain is full I imagine younger people can go a lot longer. Maybe this holds with dogs too. I have read that people should keep puppy training to 5 minutes multiple times a day too.
Might try shorter times with old dogs too!lol

Great article

Very sound advice. I've always be been told to keep home training sessions short 5-10mins max and always end on a positive

At the moment I take Leo to a one hour obedience lesson on Tuesday and a one hour agility lesson on a Saturday. He loves the agility more, probably because we are outside and they all have a 'playtime' before and after the class as we are the last one of the day.

At home he often won't even do 5 mins, he'll be doing whatever it is we are practicing a treat and then just go and lie down as if to say "that's enough mum"
