In this video, international dog training expert, Turid Rugaas, explains the differences in dog behaviour in 'teenage dogs' and explains how to cope!
Dogs aged around 12 - 18 months often start to act strangely or lack concentration in training. Turid Rugaas explains the correlation between human teenagers aged 12 - 18 years and dogs aged 12 - 18 months.
The hormone changes dogs go through at that stage often leave them with shorter time concentration spans for learning and training as well as leaving them more open to feeling stressed, vulnerable or fearful.
Turid explains her training tips and ways to cope with this period in your dog's life, how patience is a virtue and why you shouldn't despair of your teenage hound!
