The short answer is it depends. Every dog is different and has his/her own learning curve. If two people decide to take up an new musical instrument, they would progress at different rates, neither of which are predictable. What I can tell you is that the initial commitment is four weeks. When anyone chooses to learn something new, dog or person, there is a period of foundation building. When you get that new gym membership, or pick up that guitar for the first time, it takes some time before you start making gains. You have to be patient with yourself while you get used to the new skills. That patience needs to be extended to your dog as well. Contact me for an introductory phone call for more information.
