    Probably not, even if you're talking about just one single behavior.

    At least if your criteria is mastery of the behavior, not just the beginnings of an understanding in the behavior.

    Mastery/full understanding probably will take a long period of time for many behaviors, especially if your criteria includes distractions, generalization, and nearly perfect and constant response and reliability under various conditions.

    However, if you just mean that a command is trained once the dogs has the beginnings of an understanding and has just started to put 2 and 2 together - then you could probably cover multiple behaviors in an evening, especially if you can 'explain' them to your dog in a why he/she can grasp and learn quickly.

    Depends on the dog. A border collie and GSD high in intelligence and trainability can learn something after repeating just 5 times. Basics like sit, give a paw, up etc are very achievable.
