Are you having trouble with your teenage dog? I think we’ve all heard the complaints with human teens: They do not listen! Who knew it was the same with dogs? They were such a good puppy! Welcome to the adolescent phase! This class is for you and your dog.
For dogs aged between 5 and 16 months, we have our Tackle Your Teen training class. Here, we work on building your dog’s focus and confidence as well as recall (the “come” command).
Since every dog is different, we will be working on each pup’s temperament and the best way of training and working with them. You will learn to keep your dog’s attention on you, no matter the level of excitement or distraction around them. We will also focus on confidence building (some agility work) as well as practicing the stay and recall commands. That way everyone walks away from our training with the skills to have a happy, well-behaved teen dog.
So, if you’re having trouble tackling your unruly teen, come along and have fun learning to work together again!
