A girl from my unit is deploying soon, and instead of letting her pay thousands of dollars on dog boarding. And not letting her get rid of her daughters dog, I told her I would take it while she is gone. She dropped the dog off today, and said she is an 8 year old lab. After spending a little time with this old girl I can tell she has had no obedience training. I had her heeling in about 10 minutes today just walking her around the yard. But she doesn't know how to sit, stay, lay down, or any of the basics. Do I go about training this dog like I would a young dog. Or are there better ways for older dogs? Is it wise to collar condition her? I don't plan to hunt this dog, but I would like her to be a good citizen while she is living in my house. Any tips or pointers for training older dogs?
