Can you trn an old dog new tricks? Or, How can a dog learn to use one of those trning collars?

For the first time in dog history, the word "retired" is being used when a dog is old enough. Many dog owners are making that distinction between "retired" and "dying". Retired is when a dog has slowed down, but not lost all function. Dogs that have retired do well with the slow, and even the slow-to-understand activities that their owners put them to in their golden years. Some dogs need a little help in adjusting to retirement.

Retired: Can you trn an old dog new tricks?

How you trn your dog is determined by her life situation. I want to show you how to trn your old dog or dog that is "retired". Trning older dogs can be just as complicated and challenging as trning younger dogs. However, even retired dogs need to learn.

Let's take our golden lab, Maxie. She is 13 years old. She is retired from active hunting. She spends much of her time laying in the backyard, or chasing after balls. If you think that dog toys are toys for puppy dogs, you are wrong. Dogs will use their ball chasing to trn you, and to learn new behaviors, just like they will use everything they have learned to hunt with.

Maxie is retired and has slowed down a little. That means she does not always know what to do with the ball. However, she still knows where to get the ball when she wants to chase it. She has learned that running after the ball and chasing the ball is fun. Once Maxie has the ball, it's easy for her to show you or teach you what to do. If your dog has a desire to learn, then use that desire. Trn your dog at every opportunity. You do not want to miss a chance to trn. If you do, your dog will learn to go without and wt for you to trn.

Teaching Maxie to fetch is a great example of teaching an old dog new tricks. Maxie's life is full of surprises and fun things to do. This is a dog that loves to play with kids. I see her at our dog park every day. Maxie is the only dog that seems to enjoy playing with the kids. I never know what she will do next. The ball will be thrown down and she will come running after it. She does not like to miss, so she always catches the ball. With a ball in her mouth, she will take her time and then drop the ball on the ground. She will come to you and place the ball at your feet. You will look down at the ball, and then back up at Maxie. You can then give the command: "Ball!" and point to the ball in her mouth. Maxie is not trned to bring the ball to you. You will then have to fetch it yourself. If your dog has a desire to learn, then use that desire. Trn your dog at every opportunity. You do not want to miss a chance to trn. If you do, your dog will learn to go without and wt for you to trn.

## **Teaching Puppies and Young Dogs**

Teaching your puppy to fetch is similar to teaching older dogs. Most dogs will begin to fetch by running after a thrown ball. At first, a puppy will jump at any ball that is thrown. A puppy will not always make contact with the ball when it runs after it. Your puppy will not be able to determine which part of the ground or which part of the body the ball is coming from. The puppy may jump into the r to try to get the ball. If the puppy has a good drive and determination to find the ball, it will eventually jump high enough to make contact with the ball and start the process of bringing the ball to you. If you are careful, you will be able to determine if your puppy is making a proper connection with the ball. If your puppy is not, you can simply stand still while your puppy circles you and is in contact with the ball. If your puppy does not retrieve, prse your puppy and try agn.

If your puppy does make contact with the ball, do not throw the ball farther away. If you throw the ball farther, your puppy may not run or jump to get the ball and will not be able to bring it to you. You will need to use the process of "teaching" several times before your puppy will be able to retrieve the ball.

When your puppy has learned to fetch, you will always make your puppy work for its food. When a puppy has been rewarded properly, it will go to any source of food if it thinks it can get the reward. If the puppy doesn't get its reward, it will stop working and, sometimes, will start digging at the feet of the owner. This is also a sign that your puppy has learned to retrieve. To keep your puppy from digging at your feet, keep the ball or object you are using to reward your puppy away from the puppy.

If you are using the retrieve, then you will need to reward your puppy as it returns the ball. When you are out walking, always carry a treat with you so you can give your puppy a treat as it brings the ball to you. Remember that you are trning a puppy, so you must stay very calm while the dog is retrieving the ball. If you are in the habit of being tense, your puppy will pick up on that and will not be able to learn the correct behavior. Do not hit your puppy when it is playing fetch. Puppies do not like being hit, so if you do, the positive memory of being hit will be connected to the object you are trning your puppy to find. Also, your puppy needs the reward you are giving it. It will start to associate the ball with the reward that you are giving. It is very important that your puppy not learn that the reward is given when it brings you the ball. If you do not reinforce the correct behavior, your puppy may figure that out and learn bad behavior that you do not want your puppy to learn.

**Your Pup's First Leash Experience**

If you are planning to try teaching your puppy to walk on a leash, you must decide to do it before you expose your puppy to your neighbors, friends and children. There is nothing worse than arriving home with a sick, injured or pregnant dog and realizing that you did not start trning until halfway through the puppy's life. Many people can understand the desire to wt until the puppy is well and healthy before starting trning. They feel that they should wt to see what will happen, and if the puppy will be a good fit for their family and lifestyle. Other people are intimidated by trning and do not wish to deal with having a new pet, especially since they are likely to deal with medical and behavioral issues that may arise in the future. However, every puppy, especially a Goldendoodle puppy, is born with house-trning instinct, and it is up to you as a owner to tap into those instincts and help the puppy develop into an mature well-mannered adult dog.

**LITTER BOXES**

Your puppy should never be allowed to sleep in a crate without a crate pad. This will not prevent your puppy from having a wonderful sleep experience, but it will take the sting out of any potential scratches on the puppy should he sleep on the floor. If you notice your puppy crying in the night, there may be something wrong with the crate pad. Changes in temperature will affect the puppy and can lead
