Pace Of Training
I've been wondering if there is a recommended/expected pace at which I should be training Axl? By pace I mean the amount of commands that I should be introducing at one time.
I've been working with him for a month and have been focused on sit/stay, down/stay, short distance recall (15 ft on leash), staying at open doors, and loose leash walking (on prong). He's coming along very well with all of these.
I currently do not plan on introducing anything new until he has a 15 minute sit/down stay with low level distractions for 15 minutes without breaking command (his best is currently at 8 mins). After he reaches this goal, I plan on introducing heel and place.
I guess my concern is that I'm not challenging him enough and am boring him. I do mix training locations up, inside, outside and with different types of distractions. I also have my wife and step daughter work though commands with him as well.
Should I be introducing more commands at a time, or do you think my current pace is ok?
