How many weeks does it take to train a dog?

All dogs need training. Not just dogs that bark at strangers or become aggressive when someone tries to touch them, jump on visitors or run away when they are outside and off-leash. Depending on the breed and the owner's commitment level, it can take a few months to years to build a strong foundation in dog behaviours.
