One of the biggest stumbling blocks people have when thinking about signing up for dog training is,
“I don’t have time.”
And of course this isn’t unique to dog training at all!
“I wish I was fit but I don’t have time to go to the gym”
“I wish I could eat healthier but I don’t have time to cook”
“I wish my dog was well behaved but I just don’t have time to train her.”
Have you ever said something like that? I know I have said all of those at one time or another!
Time is precious and so of course we want to spend it where it will benefit us the most.
But what if just five minutes a day could make a big difference over time?
When it comes to training our dogs, every small investment of time goes into the “good behaviour bank account.”
So it’s important that we make that time count and put in as much time as we can. However, it doesn’t need to be hours per day of training. Even short sessions here and there add up. In fact, your dog will retain learning better if taught in short fun sessions.
On top of that, what if I told you that you could incorporate training that makes a big difference to your dog’s behaviour without even setting aside training time? You can.
Here’s some tips on how to fit in training without even setting aside time for a training session.
So there are three easy tips for fitting in training time, even when you’re busy. If you were to put all three into place, you would notice a positive change in your dog’s behaviour in a short amount of time.
And remember, your dog is always learning from you in every interaction you have together – what are you training them?
