Ability that is not used is lost – this also applies to dog training. Regular tutoring is a tried and tested remedy against forgetting.
In everyday life you forget the consequence
In normal everyday life, the best basic education of the family dog grinds off. Because hardly a dog owner is really consistent, after all, he also has to devote himself to family, work, friends and sometimes he just wants to be left alone. Absolutely understandable, but nevertheless fatal, because dogs exploit these small weaknesses mercilessly! The “Do not come once on call” will soon become a fifty-fifty chance that the first “here” will be followed promptly and soon there will only be chance hits.
Refresh what you have learned
There are two simple measures to remind people and dogs of their school days: Add ten minutes of “seriousness” to the long walk every day. But without any ifs and buts with the entire learned program. Or a refresher course at the nearest club or dog school. The effect is often amazing. After an hour of “work”, the family dog is quicker and more willing to consider its “follow-up” duties.
