Shaping the dog to do what you have in mind and making sure he will keep doing it under various circumstance/distraction.

I define "training" as: The actions taken to gain reliable and correct compliance from the dog.

Training: showing the dog what you want thru shaping or luring.
Then proofing them with distractions and learning from the dog so you can better teach the dog.
Train for trialing as a goal, but not having trial picture involved until all the pieces are in place. Backchaining many of the exercises.
When I hear, 'you'll never see that in trial' of course not but you can train with methods that will teach the dog what you want with equipment that will never be in trial as well.

Training to me is getting closer to your target than you were this morning (before training). Implies having a target in mind

People have probably heard me complain relentlessly about what seems to be the way dogs are trained nowadays. Seems trainers are trying to find ways to "install" behaviors vs bringing the genetic ability out of the dog and channeling it into the work we want them to do.
For me, maybe because I breed dogs, the later is the ultimate way to train. The best dogs are the ones that can be trained without all the tricks and gimmicks, or working endlessly on building drive and behaviors. They do it naturally and all you need to do as the handler is direct their drives and instincts, while the rest of the time, staying out of the way, so the dog can be who he was bred to be.

Training = conditioning responses (to me anyway, lol)

Some things are commands (come, stay, quiet, drop it, etc.) some things are default behaviors (sit at the door while I put the collar on, lay in the crate while I prepare food, etc.) some things are just adapting to house rules (no chasing the cat, no chewing my stuff, etc.) but mostly the training is taking place every moment the dog is awake, because he's constantly learning - he gets praised for good behavior and he either gets ignored or corrected for unwanted behavior, depending on the offense.
