Not at all. My 3 yr old chihuahua learned new tricks when we got her. What do you want to train your dog? Always use positive reinforcement, don't get frustrated and yell at her or forceful with her. Once you tell us what you want to train her we can help give you pointers on the exact trick

It is NEVER too late to start any kind of training on dogs. actually starting trick training now as you want to do might be cool, cus the dog is older, probably doesn't have puppy tendencies and is more apt to pay attention to you and you can have longer training sessions than if he was a puppy.

Not sure about tips SPECIFICALLY for trick training tho. maybe someone else here can help you out. I am curious to see what your dog looks like, any pics of him??

good luck with your training!

ETA- oopsie! sorry! i've been calling your dog a he and you clearly stated the dog was a SHE.

Well, this morning I spent only 5 minutes, yes, 5 mins teaching her a trick, and ive just tried it again and she MUST had learnt it with her old owner, buts it so odd, and they beat her....

Also, How do I get her to stay standing up, she ALWAYS just sits, she also is scared of the clicking noises of clips and click traning....

five minutes for a trick (a simple one) is pretty normal.

put food in your hand and lure her towards you, when she stands...say "yes!" and treat...when shes doing it ten times out of ten...stay "stand" before you lure...then eventually fade the lure.

Lol, its FINE everyone calls her a he, she has black collars, blue collars, black harnesses, green leads, EVERYTHING......Spoilt a bit

Well, I dont have any pictures of her, I did have one of her in her hunting pose, but if you google Patterdale terriers, youll see what she basically looks like

LOL Borzoi

mypattetdaleandme-> You can always teach dogs Mikey came to us at two and didn't know anything; as well my parents friends adopted a nutty retriever at two-she's now the calmest most obedient dog ever! I think it's easier to teach a dog then a pup-less crazy energy

If she's scared of the clicker-you haven't 'loaded it' enough. loading the clicker is where you teach them a click means food/goog job. You can sit while she eats dinner and just click while she's eating, and then just click-treat for a few days as well. She'll soon learn a click is good thing

you can also try muffling the sound the clicker makes with tape or something...i've used bottle tops for clickers before too, they aren't as loud so that may work better for you
