We have found that different training goals are appropriate, given the life stage of the dog. Old dogs can actually learn new tricks. Our dogs, like us, have varied and unique personalities, so training is individualized to suit each dog and its owner’s expectations. The result is a happy, well-adjusted dog that understands what we want and feels more relaxed and confident because he or she is understood.
