The pro vs dog thread brought up a frequent topic that I think deserves to be its own thread.
What do you think?
How many days a week of work?
How much work a day?
Seven days a week. Or, as many days in a row as possible, so long as the dog continues to give maximum effort, is holding up physically, and is making discernable progress. I really think that most dogs (at least, my dogs) enjoy working every day.
Optimally, would like to do three-legged pattern or other such drill and two concept driven marking set-ups each day, all seperated by two to three hours rest. Otherwise, one set of multiple blinds and one set of marks a day (morning/evening) each furthering a concept .
