how much time do you spend training your GSD?

How much time do you spend training you pup? My Molly is now 10 1/2 and we spend 1/2 hour of training a day and a additional hour of play time where I throw in commands while having fun!(flirt pole, or bush walks)

10 1/2 years or months? I run my ten month old for at least an hour a day, but probably only train for 15 minutes a day since she knows her basics and thats all I need from her

Some days more than others, it adds up to be about 5 - 7 hours per week. That is counting only actual training time on club days. It also depends on what the weather is like and how many times we get out tracking during the week.

I train my GSD for about 10-20 mins per day plus an hour of training in class once a week.

Same here- some days more time than others naturally, but I try to get in at least 20 mins a day then 1 hr at class once a week. That's in addition to frisbee and a hike in the woods where we practice commands. It's been so brutally hot that I've let it slide some afternoons.

Right now I don't go to any classes anymore. I do most of the things myself.

However, there are standard things I do each and every day and that is having them listen to commands before they get the food and to sit before I open a door.

But training itself, three to four times a week because I always give them one day off. I believe that they deserve a break too and you can tell that they need a break after a long hike or a hard day of training.
