From Rambunctious to Respectful: Adolescent Dog Training

12 week program to guide you through the Adolescent Dog period--4 months to 24 months

When you join our 12 week program, you will learn how to raise a well-mannered dog and avoid the mistakes other pet parents make that result in undesirable behaviors


The adolescent developmental period begins around 4-6 months of age and lasts until about 18-24 months. This varies by breed and these ages are approximate.

Adolescence is when puppies become more independent, and more interested in the outside world.  

Because of the brain changes, hormonal changes and growth of a dog’s body, a dog’s behavior will also change.  They can lose their understanding of the training they’ve had.  

Teenage dogs have a harder time paying attention to you because everything else is so much more interesting!!

You're probably saying things like:

"What The EFF Is Wrong With My Dog?"
Answer:   Maybe they are too EXCITED, FRUSTRATED or FEARFUL to Learn or Listen.

Do You Need Help With These Types Of Issues?

There will be times when your adolescent dog gets really excited or frustrated by something that happens in the environment around them. This can cause them to start barking, pulling, grabbing or tugging amongst other behaviors you don't want. It can be hard for your dog to calm themselves down. Let us help you calm your over-excited, barking dog.

"U-Turns" is one of the escape methods that may help when you see distractions up ahead that you think your dog might struggle with.  We can teach you several escape methods as we continue to train your dog. These are great tools to have in your training toolbox as we work with your dog to be less reactive.  

There will be times when your teenage dog loses focus and becomes distracted by things in the environment. Sometimes these distractions can cause your dog to become frustrated, worried or overly excited. They are not being stubborn.  Let us teach you how to regain your dog's attention so they can listen and do what you ask.  

One of the best exercises to help your dog learn to walk calmly by your side involves teaching your dog the position you would like them to walk in, before you even attach the leash. We are here to walk you through this, so you can be more successful when you attach the dog leash.

Frequently Asked Questions

At the end of the day, I only want you to join my Rambunctious Pup Program if you know, without a doubt, that it’s the missing link between you and creating the life you want with your dog.
If you’re still on the fence, chances are at least one or two of these questions has been on your mind.    

Let’s jump in! So far here are the most common questions:  

In short, the busier you are, the MORE you need to focus about 15 minutes a day with your dog. And I get it. You’re a super busy person with a million things on your plate. That’s why Rambunctious Pup Program was built with one thing in mind: Implementation. We’ve laid out all the steps in crystal clear fashion so that you don’t have to worry about being your own “project manager.” Instead, you just have to block off at least 15 minutes a day, dive in, and follow the step-by-step processes that guide you towards raising that well-mannered pup.

Yep! I don’t want you to foot the bill unless Rambunctious Pup Program really is the missing link between you and raising your well-mannered pup. Once you join, you’ll be invited to test things out for 14 days before making a final commitment. If you do the work (attend the classes/watch the recording and implement the shared steps) and decide this course is not right for you, just let us know and we will refund your investment.

You’re not the only technophobe to enroll in Rumbunctious Pup Program. ; ) I’ve got you covered, my friend. My program is accessible on my user friendly teaching platform. My program handouts and videos are easy to access with step-by-step tutorials to guide you through. My online classes are held on Zoom. If you know how to google or search on YouTube, you’ll be fine! I am here to get you started and comfortable with the virtual program.

For some dogs, joining an in-person group class can be too much. They have difficulties learning and listening when they are overwhelmed with other dogs, people and a new environment with lots of new smells to explore. Virtual class option starts them in the environment (their home) that feels safe and where they can focus for successful training. A virtual option is the perfect start for your rambunctious pup! Another option is with a private in-home trainer.
