Question:

: We have 2 Terriers in our family, both of them from the same mother which is fox terrier. The father of the 4yr. old was also fox terrier which belongs to my son. The father of the 2 1/2yr. old was a Jack Russel which belongs to my wife. They are both great pets and smart. But unfortunately they did not go to any obedience training. Is it to late for either one of them.

Hi Jeff,

Just having one of my JRTs complete his basic obedience with flying colors last spring at the ripe old age of 5, I have to say it's never too late!

Just remember though the key to success with any obedience school is the amount of "homework" you put into it.

If you can devote even 15 minutes a day broken into 5 minute sessions it will really help.

Good Luck!
Marie
