K.I.S.S.
Keep it short and sweet when teaching your pooch something new.

 

Dogs retain more quickly if they aren't bogged down with a heavy load of new infomation. Five minutes intervals, several times a day, does wonders in your pup picking up what your trying to teach them. Be sure to wrap up the short session up with play, belly rubs, and plenty of compliments to leave a lasting memory of whats being taught.
