Can six words launch a career?
It did for “Sweet Brown” Wilkins.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, Sweet Brown was being interviewed by a news station after a fire in her apartment complex.
The video has tens of millions of views. You can watch it here:
At the end of the interview she states:
“Ain’t nobody got time for that!”
I think that is why so many people connected with her. Everyone is so busy these days. One of the biggest complaints I hear is that people don’t have time for anything extra – like dog training.
As always, I am here to help.
Dog training does NOT require large blocks of time. In fact, you will get much better results by breaking up training into short five minute or less sessions.
Here is a great dog training schedule for you to follow. The times will vary for you but here is what I do:
6:00AM: Dog goes out to pee and poop. Quick set of sit, down and stand.
6:45AM: Time for breakfast: 30 second sit stay before meal.
7:30AM: Before leaving for the day we go outside. Before going through the door I have my dog do a down stay. Once outside we practice a few recalls and finish with a few sets sit, down, and stand.
3:00PM: Outside – after dog has relieved herself we do a few recall commands. Once we come in the house we work on a few tricks.
3:30PM: Out for a walk. During the walk we’ll do a few recalls, sit, down, stand, stay and walking politely on leash.
4:00PM: Back home and she does a few obedience commands for a treat.
6:00PM: Dinner time. 45 second down stay before meal.
You see how short each session is? Just a few minutes at a time. It is also incorporated in day to day activities. You actually get better results this way because your dog learns to listen to you throughout the day instead of when you do a “formal session.”
