Caring for Older Dogs

Your older dog will need more rest than they did before and it’s best to exercise them little and often. Strenuous activity can make a mature dog sore the next day, 20-30 minutes 2-3 times a day is good.

When training your dog, a proven way of helping them learn is to reward the good behaviour with treats, toys or praise. An example of this is if you were teaching your dog to sit, you would say the command and when your dog performs the desired behaviour, you reward them with a treat.
