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

TRACKING THEORY Almost every dog can learn tracking, when the correct method is used. A Schutzhund competition is usually won (or lost) already in the first e…xercise...Tracking! Therefore, you can understand the importance of this exercise.... Here follows the best "Step by Step" theory. The only thing that you need is a dog that likes to eat! WHAT YOU NEED A bag (to put all your tracking stuff in), a line of ±3 meter, cheese or meat (soft meat that can be eaten very fast) cut this into ±50 cubes of 1cm in size. THE FIRST LESSONS You can start with a puppy that is used to his chain. The little dog will be 3 or 4 months old. Important: Always make sure that the dog is hungry, with a full stomach he has no reason to track! The best tracking conditions are no wind, fresh green grass of ±10cm height, not too hot, not too cold and in the early morning. You always lay the track without the presence of your dog and wait minimum 15 minutes before you get him. FIRST LESSON You take the closed plastic pot that contains the small pieces of cheese or flesh. You step a circle of ±1 m Ø, one-step against the other and you throw the bits everywhere in this circle (Fig A). Then you go and wash your hands (the dog may not make the connection of your hands and the rewards) or at least clean them well with grass. After 15 minutes you get your dog and show him with your hand (the palm of your hand up, otherwise the dog may think the bits are coming out of your hand!) where to search. If the dog is searching with a deep nose on the right place, you say nothing! When the dog puts his head up, or does not look in the right place you show him with your hand the right place and say "Track". Let the puppy eat the rewards as much as possible and then leave the field by telling him he has done well. You do not let him search before he enters the track or after leaving the track! Practice this training two or 3 times after each other, until the puppy understands the word "Track" (associates the word to following the track and finding the rewards). FURTHER LESSONS Take the tracking flag and plastic pot with the cheese or/and flesh bits. Put the tracking flag always on the left side of the beginning of the track (Fig B.), with the flag pointing in the direction of the track. Always make a pre-start of ±2 meters before the flag. This means you step heavily two or three times, over and again on the same pre-track. Then you wait ±1 minute near the flag before starting the definitive track. Then you push the top of your left foot into the ground and pull this foot back ±3cm (now you have a little hole in the top of your footprint, where you put the reward bit in). You then put your right foot the same way into the ground and fill the hole with a bit. Do the rest of the track like this, within every footprint is a reward, between every step (reward) is a distance of ±30cm. The length of these first tracks should be ±8 meter. After 15 minutes you get the dog with his chain on and you put the line (just before the beginning of the pre-start) through his forelegs (not under his back legs). The reason for this is, when the dog pulls, he pulls his head to the ground. You come like this to the beginning of the pre-start and show with your hand (when necessary) the place to search and give the command "Track". When the dog is searching intensely you let him go in the right direction. However, always at your pace! When the dog comes near the flag, he will find the cheese in your footstep and eat his reward. After this one, he will find the next one and so on... He must eat every bit of his rewards (do not let him go too fast and forget footsteps). The dog is searching at your pace! As long as he is doing welt you say nothing. At the end of the track, he will find the closed pot that contains more rewards. When he has found this, you praise him and open his final reward. After eating, you leave the tracking field but do not let the dog pass his track again. When your dog searches intensely and eats all his rewards, you can make the track longer and put the reward only every three steps. When this is done, your dog will have to look in every footstep even when there is not a reward. When you have reached this stage, it is time to lay your bits at random in the footprints of the track. You can lay two or three tracks after each other, best is with every time other type of food rewards. REMINDERS Always track with a dog that is hungry! Always make a pre start! Always track with the wind in your back! Always wait 15 minutes! Always wash your hands after touching the rewards! Always put the closed pot at the end of the track! The dog has to search at your pace, look for every step and eat all his rewards! Do not train with objects or corners before he is tracking perfectly strait! Do not let the dog search before or after the track! Always take small steps! THE PREPARATION FOR SCHUTZHUND 1 In "Part 1", we have seen how to start with tracking. When your dog has reached the level to work out a straight track of about 70 meters, and still searches footprint-by-footprint it's time to begin with the first corner. IMPORTANT: In "tracking training", we always stay close to the first corner. We always do the same ritual: (as in Tracking Theory, Part 1) make a pre-start, Always make sure that the wind is in the back! The reason for this is that the smells of the footprints (and rewards) are not coming into the direction of the dog. By "wind in the back", you teach the dog to seek more intensely and to seek with a "deep nose". Now we put a track of about 50 meters straight ahead (with the needed rewards in the footprints) and at the end, we make a light, round corner. In this "corner", you put more rewards than on the straight, and directly after the "corner", place your plastic pot (Fig. C). When your dog has reached the level to work out a straight track perfectly, he will have no problems with this sort of corner. Therefore, after a few times training like this, you can make the curve smaller and smaller, until you have a real angle of 90 degrees, 3 meters after the angle you put the plastic pot with more rewards. On the first part of the track you lay the rewards at random (how many, is different from dog to dog) but then you mark the point of the angle, by turning 360 degrees, (on this point) and make the angle 90 degrees right or left. After 3 meters, you stop and place the plastic pot. Always make sure that you know exactly where the corner is! Never lay food on the angle point, but about 50cm directly after. The length, after the corner you can make longer, when you see that your "tracker" understands what you want from him. When the dog has difficulties with the angle, you can make it easier by marking your corner "double". This means when you are about 2 meters after the angle, you return on your steps till you are about 1 meter before the angle, and then go further again passing this (double) corner. (Fig. D) After a minimum of 15 to 30 minutes, you get your dog. Make sure that you always know exactly where the track is lying, this is very important! You start the track as usual but when coming on the corner, you stop when needed. Do not let the dog go wrong! At the corner, you stop, and when your dog takes the right direction, you follow immediately! You say nothing; the dog will find his first reward at about 50 cm and will praise himself. When the dog takes the wrong direction, you stay on your place and give the command "Track", when he goes on in the right direction you follow immediately! Do not' let the dog turn around several times. When he is off the track, stay at your place and give the command "Track" when he goes on the right track or direction, say nothing but follow. Now your dog has done one corner, so after several training sessions you can try two, and finally, three corners. Your result must be a track of three corners (in the Schutzhund 1 & 2 trial there are only two corners) of about 120 meters long. It is important that you are no further than 3 meters behind your dog, and that he can make his corners without your help. I am sure that I will have forgotten things, but tracking is a form of practical training that is very difficult to write in theory.
Depends on the breed and the individual dog. I've had dogs that take fewer than 5 repetitions, though others take more like 70!
Your old dog is probably jealous of your new dog. Your new dog is probably getting a lot of attention and without realizing it, you could start to ignore your old …dog. Be sure to give your old dog just as much attention (if not more) as your new dog, so they don't get jealous.
Usually people teach their dogs how to 'stay' after they learn to 'sit' then after that most people teach their dogs how to 'lay down' and so forth.
Answer It is possible but it takes a lot of patience. They are slow learners.
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 ....
SIT) You get a treat and hover the treat above it's eyes in a still motion. Don't hold the treat to high or the pig will jump for it, once your pig has it's butt completely on… the floor give it a treat. If you wait to long to give your pig a treat she will not understand what she got praised for but don't offer it to her before finishing the trick either. JUMP) Only teach this to your pig after mastering the sit command. Or else it will be more difficult for her to understand sit. All you have to do for this trick is the same for sit but lift the treat farther up and she/he should jump for it. SPIN) Hold the treat for your pig in your fingers and show your pig the treat before acting upon the trick. Once she see's the treat have her follow treat in your hand around in a complete circle. Once she has done this reward her. These were some simple tricks to teach your pig. Remember: Use treats small enough to where she does not get full so soon, use healthy treats, and you should occasionaly switch up your treats for something different if you find she looses interest in the treat you offer. Teach tricks to your pig in quiet with no other animals to interupt her concentration. Be patient with your pig. Never go onto another trick until the first one is mastered. HOPE YOU HAVE FUN TEACHING YOUR PIG!:D
put them together in the sme room and be very vigilant. watch for any aggressive signs and if so then pull them apart immediatley. But if it doen't occur then your dog g…ets along fine with the other.
It means that it is hard for someone who has been doing something one way for a long time to do it a new way. Like someone who writes right handed try to write left handed. …how do you know i can't? Of course you can teach a dog new tricks - if it is a smart enough dog. ANY trick you teach a dog is a new trick. To the dog! Some people say you can't teach an OLD dog new tricks, But again, that depends on the brain power of the dog. It can be hard for any dog to learn a new routine, though, something different from a pattern already established. Like, if you move, and the dog is supposed to sleep in a different area of the house or something: that might be hard for most dogs, old or not, to adjust to. i think it would be more of a challenge to teach any dog an old trick.
Here's the list with all the roller skates tricks in Pokémon X and Y as well the location of the respective skaters that teach you them: Backflip - By a tree… near Hotel Richissime in North Boulevard (Lumiose City); Running Star - By the monument in Vert Plaza (Lumiose City); The Parallel Swizzle - Inside an office building on the western end of South Boulevard (Lumiose City); The 360 - Inside Café Rouleu on Estival Avenue (Lumiose City); The Cosmic Flip - Lost Hotel around Route 15 (North entrance).
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.
well it is possible but you have to train it as soon as it i 1 year old. ther is one trick that i thought my turtle and it is two words that will make the turtle hide in his s…hell. You have to tell the turtle hide and push his shell down. If you keep doing that for about a month when you tell him hide he or she will hide in the shell.
"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.
The trick Atticus teaches Scout is to see things from other people's points of view. Doing so may help prevent or resolve interpersonal disputes.
In Dog Training
It all depends. You need to make sure that you give each dog an equal amount of fuss and affection. If you concentrate all your time on the new dog then the old dog can feel j…elous or even worse neglected. Anything can happen when you introduce them together. They could get along or fight. Fingers crossed its the first one
Well, there are multiple ways to introduce a young dog to another old dog. One is, when you bring the puppy in the house, go in a room. Close the door. Then hold the puppy nex…t to the old dog, and let them sniff each others faces. If the puppy starts to lick the old dog, that is a good sign. If the old dog starts to lick the puppy, it's a super good sign. If the old dog is a girl, she may as well take the puppy in as her own, if it is a boy dog, he may as well have no interest at all in the puppy. You need to then put the puppy down in the closed-doored room, and watch them. See how they react. If they react good with another, walk out and close the door, and listen to them. Go back in then and see how they are. If the puppy jumps and plays with the old dog, you need to teach the puppy not to, it may as well hurt the old dog. This is how to introduce an old dog to a young dog. Or the other way around. Mostly the other way around.
Actually they learn by themselves, you can teach ricks like stand,sit,dig and etc. Sorry if this wasn't so helpful. But there's lots of wonders! Explore and see what tricks yo…u can do with your pet.
