Did you know “Research has estimated that 130,000 dogs come into UK rehoming charities each year. It's also devastating that behaviour problems are the most common reason for dogs under 2 years of age to be put to sleep by vets”. Rachel Casey, Dogs Trust School of Dogs.
Young and full of fun - our teenage dogs can present a number of challenges when they hit the ages of 10months-18 months. Sometimes behaviours that your dog once knew well are proving to be problematic or breed specific instincts are now starting to play a larger part in how your dog lives their day to day life. Perhaps you’ve taken on a dog during this lifestage and are unsure how to get the best training going forward. This course is designed to build confidence, re-address focus but also touches on games you can play that will help build a great working relationship. Trainers will also cover secondary fear periods and how this may impact training and personality.
Taught as a 4-week course (2hours a week). There are no dogs for the first week for the theory section. A total of eight hours training! (six with your dog). Here at Raven River we love to work without our dogs every now and again; this ensures as handlers we understand and can implement the right techniques before starting to train our dogs – prepare to work your brains!
Includes exercise book, notes and access to our Terrible Teenager Facebook Group.
Dogs must be comfortable working around other dogs. Suitable for dogs 10months – 18months.
