About Teenage Terrors
Why Teenage Terrors?
Adolescence is a funny stage. It starts earlier than many people think, about 5 months, and can go on far longer than anyone wants to admit, until about 2 years.
Teenage dogs still have a lot of growing to do, physically but mentally and emotionally too.
They may have some physical discomfort from all the growing, but also mental and emotional discomfort from all the surges in hormones and their rapid brain development.
And while they are having a hard time. So are you.
While they are busy experimenting with what it means to be an adult dog, your tolerance for their shenanigans is reaching its limit.
All their annoying behaviours were cute when they were tiny, but it’s lost its appeal now they are bigger. And why the hell are they still acting like a twonk when they are definitely adult sized and over a year old?!
If they hit adolescence early or you didn’t get them until they were older you might not have had the chance to build a good bond during their puppyhood. That makes it hard to forgive and find that all important patience when they push your buttons.
Their moments of brilliance are enough to keep you hooked. You can see what they could be. If only you can refrain from killing them first.
The teenage stage is perhaps my most favourite stage of development. And that’s why I designed this course to help you see what I do when faced with a crazy teenage terror.
Because amongst all that energy and ridiculousness is a zest for life that is hard to beat. It needs channeling and careful nurturing, not squishing. And if you can navigate though the stormy waters you’ll be blessed with a deep connection for the rest of your days together.
