It's never too late to train. If you don't have experience with it, you can take her to a class at a local pet store. Try motivating her with treats. I like Natural Choice crunchies because they come in 6 different flavors and are only 6 calories each. If you allow her to behave this way (which stems from fear) it will only get worse. The more you know about her history, the easier it will be to try to solve the problem and make sure to discuss these things with your trainer. ^_^
