So ever heard of the saying 'you can't teach an old dog new tricks'? Well it's a load of rubbish, you can teach a dog at any age anything.
It is important you are mindful of what you are teaching when you are doing things with the older dog, they might have a bit of stiffness, or they might have a little bit of joint pain, but there are many things you can teach them despite their age.
What about walking nicely on a lead? or teaching a stay? maybe even teaching bed. The list is endless, be creative, kind and thoughtful. Have fun with your older dog, give them lots of breaks and make sure you make it easy for them. Some of our older dogs like the quiet life, so don't expect the same as you would from a youngster
