While training a puppy is far easier than training an older dog, trainer Trish King maintains that you absolutely can teach an old dog new tricks. In this episode of the “Good Dog” podcast, Trish and Joanne discuss doggie etiquette – the kinds of behaviors that are socially acceptable both to humans and to other dogs. Consistency is the name of the game. If Dad likes to rough-house and Mom can’t tolerate wild behavior, it’s going to be tough to get the dog to understand what he’s supposed to do. With special focus on jumping up on people, Trish offers tips for helping you train your dog to refrain from actions that frighten or alienate others – other dogs as well as humans. Learn how to handle a dog that barks incessantly, particularly at night, and what simple modifications can make a real difference.
