Just to start with, thanks so much for all the support and help I've received from you guys! I spend a little bit of time every day just going through various topics on this forum and it helps a lot. Plus all the help I've received for questions I've asked, too Dallas is getting on really well. He's such a joy to have around!
My question is how do you know when your border collie is done training for a session? I read somewhere, I think on this site, that you want to do many little training sessions during the day, like 5 minutes each. However, Dallas seems like he could keep going and going and going. He loves learning. Absolutely loves it. He completely focuses on me and picks up on things really quickly. When I end a session he keeps following me and focusing on me as if to say, "please keep going!" In fact, I've never seen him tired after a session and no matter how long a session has gone on, he never seems like he has had enough except maybe once when he really wanted to go play and was very distracted.
Should I maybe extend our sessions or incorporate more throughout the day? Each one is typically 5-10 minutes long and we have probably 5 sessions a day. We always do some training on walks, anytime he goes outside to use the toilet, and then spontaneously during the day if we have a chance.
How can you tell when a border collie is like a satisfied done with a session? Obviously I don't want him done in a sense that he has gone on longer than he should to a point where he no longer enjoys training. I want to keep him happy and satisfied
