Why Certain Breeds Take Longer to Session

How long it takes to train/groom/exercise different breeds of dogs is set according to the characteristics of that breed. Very high energy breeds such as Border Collies will require more exercise. Dogs whose coats require extensive care, like Pekingese, will take more time to groom. Stubborn breeds like Dachshunds may take longer to train. Likewise, dogs that require a lot of work in a given area are more likely to drop numbers in that area if you do not work with them for long periods of time.
