Teaching Your Old Dog New Tricks


When adopting an adult dog he may never learned proper behavior.Or your dog seems to have forgotten his training.Either way, you can teach your old dog new tricks. Start by teaching him his name.Then move on to sit, stay, come, and lay down.Pick any other commands you want to teach your dog. Use treats and praise to lure your dog into obeying the command. Practice so obedience becomes routine. Set the house rules for your home such as not jumping up on people or furniture, not chewing on shoes, among others. Use redirection and deterrents to prevent this behavior. If your dog is sitting quietly at your side, he can’t be misbehaving. Be kind and show patience with your older dog. It may take a little longer but with kindness and consistency you can train your old dog. For more information, contact your Omaha, NE veterinarian.
