    Let me answer by quoting a conversation I had with Hall of Fame training legend Rex Carr. "Rex, how long should Basics usually take?" His reply was perfect, and vintage Rex. "About six months. If it takes less than that I'm suspect of the quality of the training. If it takes much longer I become suspect of the dog." My suggestion is to give your trainer adequate time for this all important job. Basics are the foundation for life.

    It would depend on the dog, but I highly doubt all of Evan's basics could be mastered. JMO

    I sure hope the OP has read Evan's last 2 posts.
