Training of many adult dogs is similar to puppy training. Of course as dogs mature we ask more of them. Although training remains positive there will be consequences for inappropriate behavior.

As some dogs grow older, they will find other endeavors more interesting than listening to their owners and following their directions. Owners often become frustrated as the dog becomes less attentive and the important bond between dog and owner begins to crumble. Adult training consists of learning of basic commands (if not already known) and giving the dog the opportunity to use their knowledge in unfamiliar situations. The dog is allowed to learn in a low state of arousal and distractions are gradually added as the dog’s abilities progress. Problem adult dogs can become overwhelming and sometimes even dangerous. Modern humane training methods can keep your dog and others safe as he learns to interact with you and the world around him.
