lalachka If you're posting vids then don't post vids of training sessions.

I have my own and he's eager to work. I'm talking about you walking the streets, him off leash and distracted. I'm interested to see your dog.

lalachka He does but yawns. I'm not OK with that.

Post some vids of your trained dog. I'm also usually pretty hard on myself. Maybe what you consider trained is not what I'm looking for.

simba405 How many people really train every day?

I train when I exercise my dog. My dog doesn't get exercise every day.

All I have to say is if you ask your dog to sit every day for a year and he still doesn't sit 100% when told then somethings wrong.

At this point people can accept the mediocre results of their dog listening basically whenever it chooses or they get a trainer. People who don't have time for a trainer can board and train.

lalachka Yeah so that's where I'm going with this. I'm not in a rush, I can afford to waste another year on a sit with no yawns lol.

Is a trainer really going to do that? When they only have a month?

lalachka Actually, here's a good example. I got stuck training when I realized my dog sometimes yawned when I told him to sit. So stress sign.

So I stopped with the sits and went back to the beginning, building motivation, playing chase games, tug and so on.

I could've just went on and corrected him every time he didn't sit but I don't want to. I'd rather spend time on motivation and making him want to listen.

And also, as I said, i dont train every day.

lalachka Oops, my dog is a year and a half. Still, pathetic but that's not the point of this thread.

Anything else is either bad dog or bad trainer. I mean how long does it really take to teach sit down stay come heel and proof it?

Board and train gives people a starting point. Someone starts the training for them because some people are not sure how to motivate or communicate clearly with their dog.

Go up and read. I said I don't train consistently and I'm also a beginner.
I'd never board my dog. He listens most of the time and so far that worked for us
