How to Teach an Old Dog New Tricks. If you think your elderly pooch is beyond educating,
these tips will show you that any dog at any age can be taught a new trick. You will need
Dog treats and patience. Step 1. Assess your dog's physical abilities. Don't expect an
older dog to jump, leap, and run like a puppy. Step 2. Choose a clear goal such as teaching
your dog to sit, speak, heel, or lay down on command. Older dogs are calmer and more
receptive to commands, since both owner and pet have a trusting relationship. Step 3.
Focus on rewarding your dog with a treat or toy for good behavior. Don't reward bad behavior,
but don't punish them, either. Step 4. Work in small steps and keep training sessions
short. This is especially important for older dogs that may tire quickly. Step 5. Give your
dog commands consistently, and give the reward immediately after they do something good.
Step 6. Remain patient and don't expect miracles with your older pet. But if you're consistent,
you should notice a difference within a few weeks. Did you know? A recent
poll found that half of all pet owners consider their furry friend as much a member of the
family as the people in the household.
