We just adopted an older dog, not really old, but about 2-3 years. Old enough that she hasnt had any training or lessons in manners yet. And she isnt house trained. She will hold it untill we take her utside, but if we wait to long, she will not tell us she has to go, just goes. I have 3 young kids and she is really really good with them, but needs some manners on licking in the face, and jumping up. And she had never been on a leash untill we got her. She was a stray rescued from the pound before she was put to sleep. I have trained puppies before, but never an older dog that already had set ways. Do I use the same techniques that work on a puppy or do I need to do some things differently. Is this something I need to take her to obedience training for? She is very sweet, somewhat timid, and not agressive AT ALL, just needs some fine tuning.
