Hello & welcome!
Absolutely not, old dogs CAN learn new tricks, and your dog is technically still a
pup, which means you should have even greater success training him. Of course
it's best to start as early as possible, but it does not mean it is impossible after
a certain age. Chihuahuas are a very intelligent breed, extremely eager to please
their human, which makes training with positive reinforcement easier in my
opinion. Any questions you have, regarding anything at all, please feel free to
ask. This forum is educational and fun. I hope you enjoy your time here, and
congrats on your new addition! Please post pictures once he arrives home.
"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours,
faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion." ~ Unknown
