Help My usually loving well trained puppy has turned into a nightmare, she won't listen to anything I say all her training has gone out of the window, she is barking at stuff she never bothered with before and has started humping and snapping at my other dog.
She is 8mths old.
I am putting extra work into training but she is bloody hard work at the moment.
Is she going through a phase or is this payback for having a really easy puppyhood with her?
So glad its not just mine then, heres hoping it won't last too long. I tell her to come and she cocks her head at me and runs the opposite direction, she is not allowed off lead again now until she grows up and listens again, running after a small but very fast dog at 4months pregnant is not my idea of fun.
oh bugger, mine is coming up to 8 months, chewing everything in sight, digging up my garden, rolling in deer pooh every walk, running off, and suddenly very smelly - eh? Im thinking she's about to come on heat.
OH ((hug)) your baby is a teenager we got our rescue at 7 n a half months he looked as sweet as pie then he turned into a demon dog, with lots of training and sighs they do grow out of it jay dog is just over 1 and he is a lovely calm non bitey non jumpey dog, you do need to be quite firm though
