Possiblly A dog may develop dementia

There is probably a good explanation for why grizzled veterans are incapable of picking up new skills. 

Canine cognitive dysfunction (CCD) is a neurodegenerative condition also known as "doggy dementia." 

According to the findings of a new study that was published in Scientific Reports. 

The likelihood of a dog developing this neurodegenerative condition increases by 52 percent every year after the age of 10. 

Researchers from the University of Washington discovered that affected dogs may have "learning & memory deficiencies, loss of spatial awareness, changed social interactions, & sleeping pattern." 

As dogs get older, their owners should be on the lookout for the symptoms of canine cognitive dysfunction (CCD).
