Adolescent Class for Dogs

manners & play etiquette

(For dogs aged 5+ months)

Just like people, dogs go through a “teenage phase” shortly after puppyhood. Your dog’s adolescent phase will begin at around five months and continue until they reach maturity at about 12-14 months of age.

Adolescence is the final stage of reproductive development in which a juvenile becomes an adult. Like in all mammals, dramatic hormonal changes and a re-organisation of the brain occur during this stage. Together this means adolescence could be a vulnerable time for owner-dog relationships.

In this “teenage phase”, your puppy is becoming more independent, and as a result, some people describe a “relapse in basic obedience” or becoming “more stubborn” or “difficult” to control.

During your Adolescent Class, your dog will brush up on a few obedience skills. At the same time, you’ll learn some management techniques to handle those problematic scenarios.

With a little fairness, consistency and encouragement, your dog will soon have those essential manners to set them on the right path for their adult years.

Adolescent Class consists of five sessions: a compulsory online Theory class and four practical lessons.
