Is it possible to train a lab puppy that's 2 years old.
Yes, most definitely yes.
Me, Abzilla and the Helomonster.
It can definatley be done it takes a little longer sometimes but just like with a puppy you need to be consistant and patient they will catch on.
In some ways it can be easier, as older dogs have a longer attention span than puppies, who are as flighty as gnats.
You may have some problem solving to do, to fix ingrained bad behaviour.
Absolutely. Like the others said- be PATIENT and CONSISTENT. You'll both do just fine!
Agree on the patient and consistent part - and if you know their history all the better. If you're getting them from the shelter and don't know their history you'll probably have some unknown bad behaviors to correct, so even MORE patience and consistency will be needed.
I recommend training classes. I didn't do that with Billie and I need to. I got her at 18 months old. It's been a tough go. She came with basic training but it's been tough to get her bad behaviors broken.
You can train them though - if their personality is calmer and more docile it will probably be easier. Mine just happens to be a bit more stubborn and a labramonkey to boot - way full of energy that has to be burned off before we can get anywhere with concentration.
If you fit your training program to your dogs personality and you are committed to being consistent and patient you'll do just fine.
