I heard the term over-handling when reading up on Anatolian Shepherds, a breed I am interested in, and I researched the definition, but all it came up with was examples of over-handling for training dogs to flush.

I can't particularly related to this analogy because I don't know a lot about flushing; would it be possible if someone could explain it in a way that is in relation to basic training? From what I've got from the articles I've read is that over-handling is when you overtrain a dog beyond it's capabilities, but also when you don't give it time to use it's instincts?
Is this correct? Or does it depend on the kind of training?
