Presented by Barbara Hodel

Living with a teenage dog has its very real challenges for owners and trainers alike.

The novelty of the cute puppy has worn off, puppy school is a thing of the past and the puppy now shows worrying signs of becoming an unruly dog.

It does not have to be like this. The teenage months can be the start of a lasting and fulfilling relationship between us and our dogs.

Learning Objectives

  • explain what a teenage dog is and how their brain works
  • cover common behavioural problems during this stage of a dog's life
  • explain solutions on how to overcome these challenges
  • show positive ways to make it easier for the dog, the owner and the trainer.
