Top Tip Training anywhere/anytime/anybody
Practice everywhere you can - just a few minutes is fine - so your dog knows s/he might be called on to do any exercise anywhere. In addition to varying the location of your practice, vary the times of day, involve different family members and everyone who will have a role in caring for your dog, etc. Learning tends to be very specific for dogs (eg "heel" is what I do in the backyard in daytime with my tall human), so this variation will really help your dog to consolidate the exercises.
