Cures for the

Canine Teenager Blues Webinar

When your puppy is 6, 7, 8 months old, you've officially entered the canine teenager period. This is when suddenly everything is "under advisement", all learned behaviors seemingly disappear and there is much backtalk. How can a dog handler and owner survive this trying time?! We'll show you how in this webinar.

Webinar Details

Growing up is hard, especially for our puppies. They are rapidly changing physically, being bombarded with hormones and instincts they are not to sure what to do with all while attempting to figure out how to successfully live in a human world. THIS. IS. HARD!

A normal part of this development is to hit a "canine teenager" point in time where they will push boundaries, question authority and see just how much they can get away. The important thing to remember is that this is NORMAL and another way our puppies LEARN.

That being said, this can be a super trying and challenging time for puppy owners. However, there is hope. Firstly, this period doesn't last forever (thankfully), but there are also things you can do during this time to ensure your puppy is learning the RIGHT things and not picking up bad habits. We will provide you with all of these tricks in this webinar.
