But, although it may be simpler to hold this type of dog's attention, an exuberant, hyper dog can also be easy to train if you have some patience. The key is to find a dog that will bond with you. When you bond with a dog and that dog will follow you anywhere because it thinks of you as a more important member of its family, it will joyfully do anything that you ask. A dog that is bonded to its owner is very simple to train, regardless of whether it is hyper or placid, dominant or submissive.

The old adage says that you can't teach an old dog a new trick and most folks believe that adult dogs can't be trained, but that is simply not true. Quite a large number of adult dogs learn even faster than puppies. Adult dogs tend to have a better ability to concentrate on learning than puppies and they are more settled. Adult dogs usually make great pets and can prove to be very easy to train which is a good case to support rescues.

When you seek a dog, look for one that resonates with you. If you find a dog that you will bond with, it will make all the difference with your training.
