The Adolescent Stage - Dog Cognition Skills Kick In - Learn How to Adapt.

Dog Training DisrUPted - UPWARD Dogology

Sep 28 2021 • 12 mins

The adolescent stage can be very challenging, even for the most experienced dog owners, irrelevant of the dog's upbringing, breed or training history. In this episode, I refer to dogs that have had a traditional upbringing - that of the same home since puppyhood and exposed to socialization, non-aversive training, and positive experiences.  When these dogs suddenly rebel and seemingly forget everything they learn, it is common to assume they are being disobedient, but really what is happening, is their cognitive skills are kicking-in!  They are processing, thinking and reacting differently.  We need to change and adapt the way we work with them to harness these skills.

Check out season 1 and 3 all new episodes!!  More info on Canine CBT and how it relates to you and your dog.
