Pet Dog Manners

Basic Obedience for Teenagers!
For Dogs 6 to 12 Months of Age
Course Duration: 7 Weeks – 1st week Owner Education without dogs

Today’s busy lifestyles leave many of us short on time, so if you want results fast, Paw Behaviour offers a Basic Training Course that is fun, fast and effective. In a short time your dog will be able to walk on a lead, come back, sit, drop, stay and socialise beautifully with fellow dogs – if you do your homework!

Dogs commence adolescence around 6-8 months of age.  This "teenage" period will continue until the dog is 2-3 years of age, depending on the breed. Most behavioural problems in dogs start during the adolescent period around 6 to 12 months.  This course will help you understand what is going on with your dog and help you negotiate the rocky road with them to maturity!  We will help you survive the changes your dog is going through.

This is NOT a course for dogs with serious behavioural problems or any reactivity or aggression issues.  It is for dogs that need to learn some manners & basic obedience.  It's a course for owners who want to learn how to train & understand their teenage dog.

Classes are fun and teach you how to manage your dogs in everyday situations. You will learn how to recognise and prevent or resolve behaviours that are disruptive in the household or are socially unacceptable. You will also teach your dog “good manners” and how to cope well in real life situations. Having fun on the mini agility course, playing games and teaching tricks enriches your dog’s life and encourages confidence.




Need a bit more fine tuning?  Maybe a slight behavioural adjustment? Freshen up your training skills and fall in love with your dog all over again!

NOTE:  Only for clients who have completed the 7 Week Teenage Dog Course

Training and socialising your dog beyond puppy class is vital. As a young dog matures, they want to spread their paws and see more of the big wide world. Social maturity varies from dog to dog, but it’s important to keep your training going during a young dog’s early development.
