I've seen young puppies on YouTube with very good obedience, however I know every dog is different. So my question is now that she is about to turn one year old, do I have a better shot of her grasping the training now that she's a little older?

Sure! Although at her age she could be in a bratty teenager stage now too, lol. You know its hard telling them to do anything Stick with it, I am sure it will benefit her even if it takes her a bit to get what you are asking.

I'm in WI and the incoming winter is terrifying to me as Loki doesn't even like going out in the rain, plus it would be too cold for him to be outside in -10 degree weather. I am considering getting a treadmill (I go to the gym, but unfortunately it's not pet friendly, lol) but how do I make sure he doesn't get hurt on it? He is not a big fan of going for walks, he prefers to sniff pretty much nonstop (which tires him out immensely!) so doesn't like walking too far and would probably try to get off the treadmill. How do you make sure he doesn't get under the belt or something? I take him on daily walks right now, once in the morning (about 45 mins) and once at night before work (about an hour), then some play time in between. Do you take your dog for walks in the winter? How do they handle the cold?

A game of tug is a good time to start teaching your dog what ever command you want to use for her to drop it, release what is in your mouth, put it down.

Just my opinion, but I feel every large breed should know this command right up there with sit, stay, come. Easy to teach the dog things when it's fun.
