Default Getting an older dog and competition...

I couldn't think of an appropriate title for this LOL.

Anyway, I may have the opportunity to acquire an almost 6-year-old dog (not a Finnish Spitz, but I don't want to give away the breed in case it doesn't happen - I know a few people on here and don't want anything to spread via Facebook unless it's a definite yes), who has already gotten some titles (AKC CH, HIC, HT, CGC, TDI). I would mainly be getting him to try and put more titles on him (most definitely rally, would love formal obedience, and possibly agility) and just to have another dog/breed to train and gain experience working.

I guess I'm just wondering what others have experienced as far as taking a dog that is older but has had some training and continuing on with them. My two that I've gotten as adults thus far have had no prior training, plus I am not planning on doing any sports with them, so this is a different sort of situation.


Thanks meepitsmeagan for the siggy!
