Do you think it is possible to house train an older dog? The dog is approximately 8 years. I'm considering adopting this little Jack Russell but he is not housebroken. I've got experience housebreaking little puppies, but not an older dog. Everybody keeps telling me he's too old to train. What do you think?
I never believe a dog is to old to teach new tricks. it may take longer, and be frustrating, but can be done. The only dogs our rescue has ever had a problem with is puppy mill dogs, but the ones we have wont even really come to people.
You would house break the older dog the same way as a puppy.
