Default too late to train?

We are considering adopting a recently neutered, 2 year old Cocker Spaniel mix (?) dog. The dog was found wandering and picked up by animal control. It is now in a foster home. We met the dog -- cute as can be -- but acts like a 2 year old puppy. Completely out of control, jumping, racing around, pulling on the leash, a bit mouthy but not in an overt agressive way that we could tell. Very apparent that it has not had any obedience training. Is it too late?

Default To late to train

Hi Marybeth,
Thought I'd reply to you as I recently adopted a 2yr old dog from an animal shelter, he didn't seem to have had any training either, and had been in the shelter for 9 months or so, however he has responded well to his training Infact he learned as quick as a puppy, within a week he was walking to heel ( until we see another dog, but we're working on that!) He very quickly learned to wait before his food, etc. I would implement alpha training straight away, but for sure with patience an dedication, and of course fun he can be trained
have fun
