Senior dogs – 8 Years and older. You can teach an old friend new tricks


If you think your dog is too old to learn … think again! As an NDTF certified dog trainer, Paula Edrich is an expert in “life stage training” and works with dogs of all ages. In fact, she has successfully trained dogs as old as 13! That old saying … “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks” is merely an old wives tale!

Many times, senior dogs will develop bad habits, separation anxiety, fears and phobias due to lifestyle changes. Similar to people, these common stress factor situations can be a divorce, death in the family, moving homes, new baby arriving, introducing a new dog into the home and others:

  • Jumping
  • Counter Surfing
  • Aggression
  • Dog at Dog Conflicts
  • House training an adult dog who lived outside
  • Regression (re-house training / house soiling)
  • Bringing new baby into the family
  • Introducing a new pet into the family
  • Digging
  • Chewing
  • Nipping
  • Excessive Barking
  • Car Chasing
  • Leash Pulling
  • Shelter / Rescue Dog Training Needs
  • Not Coming When Called
  • Separation Anxiety
  • Fears (thunder, vet, car rides, people)

As a NDTF certified dog trainer, Paula is an expert in “life stage training” and works with dogs of all ages. She understands the senior dog and their special needs. Paula’s positive reinforcement techniques are fun, easy to understand, and reward your dog’s natural desire to please.

What makes our training methods so effective? It appeals to your dog’s natural “pack animal” instinct, so your dog can be successful regardless of age. Don’t despair – age is just a number … it’s never too late … you CAN train your senior dog! Paula has successfully trained many dogs of different breeds, age, size, and temperament, all with varied behavioural issues.
