I live in Ica, PERU and we plan on adopting a 6month black male Lab next week. I work on a farm and do some bird hunting, and I also have a 2 year old which I think will do great with a breed like the Labrador.
Im a little hesitant however because he is 6months old, has anyone ran into behavior problems they couldn't change with a dog "this old" ?
Any help is appreciated!
I don't believe you can't teach an old dog new tricks! He is still a puppy at 6 months old, and Labs stay puppies mentally until they are 3 or 4 years old. Also with their unique ability to learn, their behaviour is pretty malleable at all ages.
My dog was a terrible puppy and wasn't fully trained (trusted off-leash) until he was 4.
not to worry. dogs learn even at older ages than that. and can be trained and retrained.
