I am a corporate trainer. The short definition we use for people training is "the increase of knowledge or skill related to ones current role".
I view dog training to be very similar. We train our dogs for their role whether it is to be a inside dog that doesn't poop in the house, or a police dog that takes down bad guys. Like humans, a dog's role can change requiring additional knowledge or skill. Or sometimes the role stays the same but the expectation of performance increases.
With this definition, I wouldnt ever say that a dog is finished with training. I would say that they are "trained" in relationship to a specific topic. Like "he is house trained".
It is similar to saying "that person is trained on Microsoft Word". That doesn't mean the person never needs to be trained again.
