C.H.A.C.O. Dog Training & Behavior Consulting**ONLY 2 SPOTS LEFT** Class Description: Adolescence is a transitional period that varies from pup to pup.  During this stage your puppy will begin to “test” new boundaries (and you) and become more interested in other dog friends and  what the environment has to off︎er. Kinder Pup 2 is here to  help you maintain your adolescent social-graces and give you the  know-how so that you can continue to reinforce the behaviors that  you want in your dog. The choice, of course, is yours: to bite the  bullet now by continuing with the “education” of your adolescent  dog or subject yourself to a life of rowdy behaviors and a not-so-fun life with a dog.

You will learn how to reward your dog for behaviors around the home and on “the go”. Special attention will be given to typical adolescent behavior such as: “selective-hearing” when it comes to leaving undesirable items, avoiding you at all cost, exuberance (jumping, mouthing, pulling on leash and rough play with other dogs) lack of impulse control: dashing through doors, unable to sit/stay or down/stay when requested.

We will be working inside a temperature-control room and outside weather permitting, so please dress in layers.
