You can not teach an old dog new tricks?
this means that an "old dog" is someone who is used to the older fashioned views and ways of people and would not accept newer ideas or understand newer concepts as easily as someone born in a generation with these advances

Thanks for the feedback!
Teaching an old dog tricks is gonna be a hard job definatley ! Well it is possible however I have 2 aslakan Malamutes that are both show dogs and our quite old.... …However they are easy to teach as they are fed on performance food e.g Eukanuma or Royal Canine also make sure you dog is healthy in order to learn new tricks ... It will be a struggle at first but then becomes easier gradually ....
"You can't teach an old dog new tricks" means that you can't teach older people new,modern, things. I do not agree with that but you might! I am only 11 and I did that in sc…hool.
In a science expierment my friend did it proved that you cant teach an old dog new tricks! EVEN MORE THAN U CAN TEACH YOUNGER ONES.
you canteach a old new tricks.
Yes! All it takes is a little practice, tons of treats, and a lot of positive reinforcement. In fact, older dogs may be a little calmer than younger dogs, thus making it easie…r for them to be trained. Check out the Mythbusters episode about it!
i have no idea but i do now its not true i had a dog that was 81/2 and he could learn a trick in a day
It is never too late to teach an old dog new tricks! If you adopt an adult or even a senior dog, you may be amazed at their ability to concentrate and learn new things. Adul…t dogs are often even easier to train than pups, simply because they have the ability to focus for a longer period of time. Other contributors have said: With patience, yes, you can. A dog treated well is loyal and it will always do its best to please its owner.Dogs can continue to learn at any age.Take a look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself that question! Yes, sometimes you can teach an old dog new tricks as long as they aren't too complicated. Teach the dog to pray (paws across the muzzle, head down.) Don't expect a very old dog to jump through hoops.Why change something that doesn't need fixing. Your dog was fine as he/she is, so I wouldn't bother teaching the dog new tricks and just have fun with the dog and enjoy it while you still have it.You can teach seniors fetch and stuff, but an adult would be easier for complicated tricks for an adult not senior. So yes and no but mostly no.
This is a motto from the Aesop's Fable 'The Ass and the Lapdog'.
it is harder, but yes, you can. as long as you are persistant and have an endless supply of doggie treats, haha
Yes. Provided the dog is willing. Food is generally the way to do it.
Actually you can. Some dogs just get too lazy to learn tricks, that's why some people believe that phrase. I have a 7 year old dog with another 6 to 7 years to go, and I taugh…t him a new trick within 2 days! He perfected it, and many people consider him old.
Just think like this Say: you can't teach an old(replace with different subject) new(something related to subject) try it
In Dog Training
Yes. All dog owners do that! I have a dog and I teach her old tricks! My dog is new too!
As you would any trick. It's just a saying after all.
Exactly what it says! It is supposed to be harder to teach old dogs new tricks and people use the same phrase to describe when older people are set in their ways and don't wan…t to learn anything that goes against what they already think.
It means when someone is old it is difficult for them to learn anything new and can't change their ways. It doesn't really carry over to dogs as dogs can learn tricks at any a…ge so it is only symbolic and applicable to humans.
