If you’re looking at this page then by now you may well be quite exhausted by your puppy-raising efforts! Hopefully though you are justifiably proud of your well-mannered, well-behaved, highly socialised dog with dependable bite inhibition. However... Adolescence is a time of big change!
To ensure that your attentive, mannerly and friendly puppy remains attentive, mannerly and friendly throughout adulthood, you need to accelerate socialisation and training during adolescence.
One of the most challenging but really important aspects of adolescence can be making sure your dog continues to meet unfamiliar people and dogs on a regular basis. If your dog is confined to your house most of the time and only meets the same familiar people over and over, he will desocialise surprisingly quickly and may soon grow to be wary and fearful of strangers, especially children and men.
Your daily walks and visiting new places a couple of times a week are a must and always make a point to praise your dog when he acts appropriately and to reward him whenever he is well behaved and greets other people and dogs. Next on the list if you can is to carry on attending a regular training course.
Your dog's adolescence is a critical time. If you ignore your dog's education now, you may well soon find yourself living with an ill-mannered, under-socialised, hyperactive animal.
Having adopted one such large individual as a mature adult in the hope that I could turn him around you can trust me on this, living with this type of dog is no picnic!
The Adolescent Essentials class is specifically for dogs from 18 weeks to 2-3 years old.
