Sorry for the title. I am typing on my phone. Lol. Guess it will get a couple extra views. I have added this edit but cant change the title.
So i have two labs. One is 4 months and the other is just over 9 years. I am training the pup right now. I was looking at her pedigree and saw she is a cosmo relative and has a couple of other good names on her list. So i decided to look at my 9 year olds pedigree. To my surprise it is full of FC, AFC and a couple of NFC and NAFC and MH. I mean like every dog in his line is titled. I started feeling really bad that i had not trained him, now I'm wondering if it is too late. He has arthritis in one shoulder that does not bother him when he is on his medication. Other than that he still has a ton of energy. Guess i am worried about injury or just giving him a heart attack or something. He already has basic obediance. He will chase down anything but only brings it back if it is in the water.
Has anyone trained an older dog with success?
