Can You Teach Dog Obedience to a Senior Pet?
We’ve all heard the saying that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but is that the reality? Once a dog hits senior age, many dog owners have long since stopped thinking about teaching dog obedience. Whether you have had the dog for a long time, or are adopting a senior, there is no reason to think they cannot be taught to behave better. All dogs, regardless of age, want to be part of a family and feel useful. They also all need to stay active. Dog obedience training, whether by yourself or with a dog trainer, can help with all those things. Essentially, keeping your dog engaged can keep them feeling youthful.
