Obedience

Adolescents and Adults: Is your party getting out of control?

Most dog owners sign up for training classes or seek help during the adolescent stage of their dog's development. Between 6 and 18 months of age can be some of the most challenging times of life with your dog. But don't worry; obedience training can help! Teaching your dog even the most basic exercises and repeating them on a daily basis helps to channel your dog's energy in a good way and encourages good canine manners. Oh, and it can be fun too!

You might ask, "But my dog is already an adult. Is it too late to start training?" Absolutely not! Dogs can learn at any age; quite often it's the owners that have more difficulty changing their ways. You should also know the longer the dog has to practice a behavior the better he/she gets at it and the more likely he/she is to continue it.

So what does all of this mean?

Don't wait to get started!

"It is fatal to let any dog know that he is funny, for he immediately loses his head and starts hamming it up."
