Has any one ever seen this happen?
we walk with a friend and her cav, a couple of times a week, the cav is very well trained, they do agility and obedience. We dont!
Pepsi is well trained, she has all of the basics plus reliable recall, all i ever dreamed of, considering she has basically no training when we got her at 2 yrs.
She is now 9 and she is picking things up from her little doggy friend, in the past month or so, she has started shaking, speaking and weaving between legs while walking, i have never taught her these things, i only discovered them when my friend was showing us her dogs new tricks and doing some old tricks and she started following and doing the actions at the same time.
I am now encouraging her to do them, she is extremely food motivated and loves praise. But i have read a lot online and in books but never heard of this happening. there are cases of older dogs teaching pups but not a younger adult teaching an old dog new tricks!
