It came from Dictionary of Proverbs by Nathan Bailey (1917).
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 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 school.
The Book of Husbandry, published in England in 1534. In the spelling of the time, the phrase is entered as ' for it is harde to make an old dogge to stoupe'
This is a motto from the Aesop's Fable 'The Ass and the Lapdog'.

Just go along to a class. They should help you and teach you how to do all sorts of tricks and flips.
Just think like this Say: you can't teach an old(replace with different subject) new(something related to subject) try 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 taught him a new trick within 2 days! He perfected it, and many people consider him old.
I think you must add : new tricks It means that you can not change someone who has old habbits (generally the bad ones).
You cant actually "train" your turtle like you can train a cat or a dog. But by hanging out with them often they get used to you. although i taught mine to give kisses.

The phrase was frequently and widely used in the African American community prior to Curtis Mayfield's use in song.

Good luck in your search.
