This package provides you with the the skills you need to help understand and communicate with your adolescent dog.

During adolescence there are LOTS of changes going on in the brain which can make dog teenagers more difficult to live with. Without having a good understanding of how this developmental period is affecting the brain, it can be very easy to misunderstand their ‘bad’ behaviour and get frustrated with any training regressions.

The package is for dogs between 6-24 months old and involves two private training sessions based in your home and out at the park. The initial session is 90 minutes and the second session is 60 minutes. You will be asked to fill in a behaviour questionnaire prior to the first session. The sessions also include written up training plans with useful handouts and links.
