Despite the saying that you can’t teach old dogs new tricks, it turns out that you actually can. Senior dogs can be taught and trained, just like younger pups. In certain ways, old dogs are easier to train because they are more patient and less energetic. Private senior dog training with the experts at Canine Path at Manhattan Beach is a great way to ensure older dogs get focused lessons customized for their particular needs.
Private Senior Dog Training in Manhattan Beach and Surrounding Areas
To make the most out of the training time, private sessions are recommended for older dogs. Our sessions can be for rescued adult dogs or to polish your long time canine companion’s fundamentals and encourage good habits.
Positive reinforcement is a must for training older dogs. Canines have a hard time understanding anger and scolding, which will only lead them to become more anxious. Instead, positive reinforcement will encourage good habits because they will associate certain behaviors with rewards. This is a superior way of motivating dogs regardless of their age.
So whenever your dog follows a command, whether it sits or rolls over, be sure to give it a treat. And make sure to practice these behaviors often to reinforce them. Older dog training sessions will cultivate these good habits, training them just like any young pup.
