Can You Teach Old Dogs New Tricks?
Can you teach an old dog new tricks? This question has come up so much in the last few months that I felt compelled to answer it. Let me ask you this, can you teach an older human new things? Of course you can! We can teach older dogs new behaviors too. In some ways, depending on the canine companion, it can be easier to teach a new behavior to a more mature dog. Older dogs don’t have puppy brain and are not typically distracted by a leaf moving and have a bit more of an attention span. Also, they typically have an established framework of other behaviors to relate to. Really, it is not too late to change some things and mentally stimulate your mature or senior dog. Let us show you how!
