Adolescent Dog Training Surrey

The signs of adolescence are hard to miss. Where did all of the skills go?

You will notice that your perfectly well-behaved puppy will have difficulty concentrating, that the behaviour towards other dogs will change and that the hearing will become selective.


It is a critical life stage, and your dog needs guidance in becoming a well-balanced and well-mannered adult. 

Our certified dog trainer will help you navigate and make the best of your dog’s teenagehood.

Dog Training In Surrey

When to start Teenage Dog training?

Around seven months of age, you will start noticing slight changes in your teenage dog. The behaviours that you have previously successfully taught your puppy are falling apart, and it seems like your adolescent dog has gone deaf. You might also experience the appearance of new undesirable behaviours, such as:

- Barking at visitors, barking at people and dogs passing by your home, barking at you. 

- Barging out the door

- Counter surfing

- Pulling On Lead

- Not Coming Back When Called

- Reactivity on the lead or in interaction/play with other off-lead dogs.

- Humping

- Restlessness

What do we typically do in an in-home Dog training session?

Our priority is always to address your dog training wishes and needs. All dogs, families and expectations are different and with the 3 1 hour in-home dog training sessions, we can tailor the dog training to your needs.

Frequently we cover the following topics:

- Arousal in young dogs and how to teach calm behaviours and stimulus control

- Loose leash walk

- Your dog's engagement with you, attention to the handler and teamwork

- Dog-to-dog interactions, how to teach your dog calmness around dogs and people on a walk, safe dog play

- Basic Behaviour brush up
