Endless Adolescence Package
(18 weeks to18 months)
Teenage years can be a bit tumultuous for just about every species. We understand this is an impressionable and vulnerable stage of life for your young dog. Starting with the initial consultation, we collaborate with you on assessing your dog’s training needs. Once we have your goals in sight, our “Teen” Package will address the complexities of your dog’s rapid growth and development during these months, (mentally, physically, socially) and how this manifests into a wide variety of common challenges as their needs change.
We will incorporate impulse control training, establish appropriate exercise outlets, help build confidence as they move through this growth period, loose leash walking skills, and emphasize the importance of maintaining clear boundaries and consistency. We want to help you survive adolescence and come out the other side with a better behaved, more confident, and resilient canine citizen.
