Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So after spending a few days at a friend's house who happens to have an amazingly trained dog, I began to think about my own dog and how great it would be if she were to obey a *few* commands.
The one that *technically* is my dog is the red Shiba Inu in that picture. Kisa. She's eight years old and an AKC Grand Champion (I showed her as a puppy. She got her championship at about two than had three litters, most of which went on to be champions themselves). But, the only commands she learned from showing is some intense leesh training skills, and 'Stand Pretty' and 'Cookie.' The two vocal commands are pretty much useless unless she is on a leesh (stand pretty) or if she is in the house and knows where her treats are.
So, is Kisa too old to start training? And if not, how should I go about doing it? I really only want a few basic ones like 'sit', 'come', 'stay' and maybe 'lie down.'
Any PA Dog Whisperers out there willing to lend me some advice?
