Service Description

During the adolescent stage our dogs can drive us totallypotty. Most clients are well aware of how time consuming a new puppy can be, but adolescence can make us seriously doubt our training abilities and generally not enjoy our dogs as much as we would like. Its also common to think that the behaviours your very young puppy exhibits are ‘trained’ - stays close, recalls well, stopped chewing? Then they turn into a teenager...this can be anytime from 6 months ish to 18 months and even 2 years old. The issues you may have massively vary, just like with human teenagers. Some may go off the rails all together, pushing away from the main care giver specifically. Some are typically a bit more anxious or worried and other are quite headstrong. The most common reported issues around this time are general exuberant and boisterous behaviour, not coming back when called and failing to respond to training that has previously been taught. There’s a lot going on in the teenage dog’s mind and body at this time and just like a human teenager, adolescent dogs can be frustrating and on occasion difficult to live with! This workshop offers a relaxed class for adlescent dogs. It is fab to help you either get started with training or refresh areas whihc now need more work. We will look at the following topics. How to promote calm and settled behaviour Improving leash skills Not lunging/jumping at other dogs and people Touch training including application and removal of walking equipment . How to tire their brain not their body Recall practice Proofing positions such as sit and down All sessions held on site at NE17 7AT
