My dog is 11 yo and he learns some things more rapidly now than when younger!

Read: http://www.dogstardaily.com/free-downloads both books for some suggestions.

One general suggestion is to watch your dog and see what behaviors he repeats, then say the word for that behavior and give a little treat.... Then, ignore him and repeat. For example, Go in the kitchen with him and with no distractions. When he is bored, he will sit. Say Sit! when he does and give a tiny little treat. Then, ignore him until he gets bored again, when he will Sit! ... repeat this process for about a week. Clicker training is all about this method...
