The shifts in your puppy's behavior during adolescence. From testing boundaries to increased independence, stay patient and consistent in your approach.
Reinforce basic training commands and introduce more advanced skills. Consistent training builds a foundation for a well-behaved and manageable adult dog.
Continue socializing your adolescent puppy with various environments, people, and other dogs. This helps prevent anxiety and promotes a well-adjusted adult dog.
Maintain regular vet check-ups and stay on top of vaccinations. Discuss any concerns about behavior changes or health issues with your veterinarian.
Channel your puppy's energy through regular exercise. Long walks, playtime, and interactive toys help burn off excess energy, reducing the likelihood of destructive behavior.
Practicing patience is key during the teenage years. Remember, this phase is temporary, and consistent positive reinforcement will lead to a well-behaved adult dog.
Strengthen your bond with your adolescent puppy through quality time, positive interactions, and reinforcing your role as the pack leader.
