"Dog Myths"

“You Can’t Teach an Old Dog New Tricks”

The Pooch Coach was asked to be on Mythbusters to prove that you CAN teach an old dog new tricks.

The Pooch Coach on MythBusters

Beverly with Jamie & Adam


We rescued two 9-year-old brother & sister Malamutes from a shelter to help us bust this myth.   They were both completely untrained.  They pulled horribly on their leashes and did not know any basic commands.


Watch a segment of the show below.  It’s the final contest between the 2 dogs to demonstrate they both learned the commands sit, down, shake, stay & heel in just 2 weeks of part time training!

Cece, the dog that The Pooch Coach trained with Adam, is perfectly trained and the clear winner!



You CAN teach an old dog new tricks!
