“Surviving the Terrible Teens” Adolescent Dog Class

Thank you so much for your patience while we figured out our schedule for the spring! Between now and June, we will be offering drop in mini-workshops instead of our traditional Terrible Teens classes. Keep reading to find out more, and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Has your sweet little puppy turned into a teenaged hooligan? Is your recently adopted young dog driving you bonkers? If your pup is between the ages of 5 months and 2 years, you are smack in the middle of doggy adolescence. Just like the human equivalent, teenaged dogs can be QUITE the handful!

Join us in Sykesville to learn how to train, manage, exercise, and occupy your Terrible Teen. These classes will be fast paced and fun for your energetic teen!

Who it’s for:

Dogs between the ages of 5 months and 2 years old, who are comfortable in a group environment around other dogs and people. If your dog is anxious, aggressive, or reactive, please schedule a private in-home session to work with us one-on-one! (Older dogs are also welcome.)

How it works:

Each mini-workshop is able to stand on it’s own – come to as many as you’d like, whenever you’re able! Each class will have a topic to cover anywhere between one and three behaviors.

What you’ll learn:

Polite Walking Workshop:
– Get and keep your dog’s attention in new places
– The tools, basics, and mechanics of loose leash walking
– How to use the world around you to reinforce good behavior
– How to keep it up!

Come When Called Workshop:
– The Big Do’s and Dont’s of Building Your Recall!
– How to add distractions in training
– Can we lose the leash?

What it costs:

$25 per class!

When and Where:

  • 10:30am Saturday mornings in Sykesville off Bartholow Road
  • These classes are held outdoors so you practice around the same types of distractions you see in the real world! Please wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather!
