    1 thought on “Old Dog, New Tricks: Understanding and Retraining Older and Rescued Dogs

    1. I ve always had an uncomfortable feeling about the whole notion of training dogske it s weird to exert control over another sentient being, especially one that you own and that you put a collar and leash on and keep as a prisoner in your house The power differential in that relationship is unequal enough, without also training the poor dog to obey your every command I worry that someday we re going to judge pet ownership the way we now judge slavery.However I do have a dog, and I consider her a [...]

    2. I checked this out of the library in hopes of figuring out how to teach our dog how to give us a signal that he had to go outside I have never had a dog who hasn t barked or come to me demanding attention when it has a need to go to the bathroom I didn t teach them that, they just did that naturally Our current dog is very well behaved but we take him out on a schedule due to no signals from him This works okay during the day, but we have had some trouble at night I am sure if I was awake I woul [...]

    3. Highly recommended This book is one of two books that I have found that address the problems of dogs fear biting and resource guarding growling when others get too close to their food or toys The other book that provided useful info is The Dog Listener This book provides full color illustrations that demonstrate step by step how to teach your dog different tricks such as heel, lay down, etc It also addresses the issue of adopting an older animal or adopting dog with an unknown history my situati [...]

    4. Hm I kinda disagree with some of the advice in this book Like the bit about how you shouldn t reward with food what is this, 1940 EVERYONE rewards with food You can reward with praise, but logically, it would only be effective if you withheld praise at all times except when your dog obeys commands That doesn t sound like a normal life with a pet.After that, I slammed the cover shut and read no Sheesh, I know everything there is to know about training dogs I just need to spend less time reading [...]

    5. Good book with excellent training points Unfortunately, I am unable to use the info because my adopted dog is much better trained than we first thought Despite the title, this has some excellent training points for puppies as well.

    6. Excellent book on dog training The advice in this book could be used for dogs at any stage of life, but I particularly appreciated the details of the problem behaviour solutions I found the advice consistent, informed and up to date.

    7. I was a little disappointed in this book Glossily laid out with good illustrations, it covered a lot of of the topics I was hoping for But it failed in giving anything beyond the basics of mechanics.

    8. Skimmed through this book Has lots of excellent information on dogs.Has 176 or so pages Very helpful.

    9. In this book, the author explains that older dogs are able to keep learning and presents ways that you can help your dog learn new things.
