5 Signs that your mischievous puppy is actually already a teenage dog.

Updated: Oct 14, 2022

For many, it can be hard to recognise when our lovely puppy becomes a tearaway teenager. Here are 5 signs that your pup may already be hitting that stage in their life.

  1. Your dog is between 5 months and 2 years old.

  2. Your dog is less obedient and increasingly motivated to explore, interact and run away.

  3. It is like they are a different dog, who no longer wants to please you and instead is plotting against you.

  4. They are suddenly barking at people, dogs or inanimate objects they've seen100 times before with no issue.

  5. Nothing in your house is safe from them chewing, grabbing, running off with or tearing up.

“Oh WOW I had no idea, this is exactly whay my puppy is doing!! It is driving me insane. What can I do to get my lovely well behaved puppy back?”

Don't worry we are here to help, have a look at the next post to find out what you can do to not only survive this stage, and it is a stage, but instead thrive and enjoy it.
