Once we start adding the command to a position, we can quickly begin fading the lure out of the equation. Fading the lure will vary from dog to dog. Some dogs will require a long gradual process, while others will quickly associate the new verbal command with the position, making the fading process much easier.
It is also important to note that the more positions you train, the faster the association between verbal command and position will occur. There is not a set progression for fading our lures. The concept is to make them shorter and faster until you eventually only use your verbal command.
