|Foxxy and Sabi-
I don't care if a dog is 2 pounds,20 pounds,or 200 pounds. The rules are the same. Old dogs can learn to behave differently and many people who have taken in seniors and fostered them have proven it. The difference is they did not try one approach for a short time,not get results and give up,they continued to work as hard as they needed using many different methods,until they found something that worked and continued to work at it until the problem was resolved. As both Foxy and Sabi have saqid training is life long,my Akitas are 3 and 5,still young but started learning from day one in my home and will continue to review and reinforce training right to the last. Training can be difficult,time consuming and frustrating at times.that doesn't mean you don't do it,but I agree with Sabi if you are not able or willing to put in the time effort and energy to train this dog,perhaps another home with someone who is willing and comitted would be a better solution for both of you.
