Dont think it would be much different, is he housetrained? I have tried to house train older dogs and its always harder to get the concept thru to them then it is a pup. The other commands I think would be pretty much like a puppy, we taught robin (foster dog) to sit by putting food in our hand right up to his nose and rocking our hand back so he sat and then immediately got the treat. Took him about a week to get it, lay down was done on the kitchen floor and we would sorta gently slide him back and say down. He got it! He wasnt a very smart guy lol but he was full of fun and he did want to learn! I cant even really type about him without crying.
