How Your Older Dog Can Help Train Your Puppy!

Updated: Dec 1, 2020

With all this energy and activity, we can use all the tools we have to train them! You can use a trainer, watch videos, and you can use your older dog to help!

Puppies begin learning as soon as they are born. Their first teachers are their mother and littermates. Dogs are their first teachers and can be their best teachers. If you have a trained older dog in your household, let them help you. Dogs are pack animals and they always learn from each other. They can do it faster than you can and can get it across clearer than you can.
