Terrific Teen Program

Raising Rover - Terrific Teen Program - Welcome Image

Just when you thought the hard work was over and done with, between 5 and 8 months of age your puppy begins to transition into adolescence and a whole new set of challenges present themselves. If that sweet pup who never wanted to leave your side now looks at you blankly before walking the other way when you call, or is pulling on leash more or is just more barky, bitey, bossy or destructive, or ALL of the above:

 YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE. 

Other common symptoms of Teen Angst may include:

Welcome to Terrific Teen!

During the adolescent phase of development, the canine brain is literally being remodelled in a process that is similar to how human teens develop. Unused neuronal connections are being pruned and new connections are just waiting to be formed. Picture a house under renovation – there is dust and grit everywhere, there are plastic sheets making do as windows and loose wires hanging out of the walls. It’s no surprise that things aren’t working the way you might hope. This often leads to frustrated and discouraged pet parents, and even rehoming.

THE RAISING ROVER PROMISE
SETTING YOU AND YOUR DOG UP FOR SUCCESS EVERY STEP OF THE WAY!

Over the last 20 years I’ve helped thousands of pet parents get back on track and fall in love with their dogs all over again!

Terrific Teen clients have peace of mind in knowing they are getting the benefit of the very latest knowledge and best practices regarding canine adolescence in addition to over 20 years of experience. They are assured unparalleled support alongside a clear guide to what to work on each week. It’s why we are the #1 recommended dog training program by VCA Canada Toronto-based hospitals and many local veterinarians.

TOGETHER WE CAN TAKE YOUR TEEN FROM SASSY TO CLASSY

We just finished puppy training and have no major pain points – is this program right for us?

ABSOLUTELY! Because the adolescent brain is literally restructuring itself this is the perfect time to be providing ongoing training so that you can stay one step ahead of the game. That way you’ll be ensuring that the right behaviours are developing from the start, rather than trying to fix a problem once it’s already cropped up.

TRAIN SMARTER NOT HARDER.
YOUNG DOGS GROW INTO PROBLEMS MORE OFTEN THAN THEY GROW OUT OF THEM

We already have some problems – Is it too late to get back on track?

ABSOLUTELY NOT! I’ll give you a concrete step-by-step plan to turn frustration and discouragement (and sometimes resentment and guilt) into confidence and pride in your accomplishments together. Get ready to be the envy of the neighbourhood.

I'LL HELP YOU UNLOCK YOUR DOG'S POTENTIAL AND LIVE YOUR BEST LIVES TOGETHER

Doesn’t my dog need to practice around other dogs ?

You and your dog will be able to hone new skills quickly in a safe and distraction-free environment to better prepare you for what the world throws your way. And you’ll have as much support as you choose with different levels of enrolment.  

TERRIFIC TEEN: YOUR SUCCESS IS MY SUCCESS 😊

So if the following bragging rights are of interest:

The Terrific Teen program is available in 3 formats, to suit different needs and budgets. 

The content inside your online library of training resources is the same whichever package you choose, but the group and private programs offer more customization and personal support, where you’ll be signposted to the content that’s relevant to you as you progress through your training and you’ll have direct access to me to share videos, questions, and worries. 

In the group and private programs you’ll have me there alongside you to help you overcome struggles as they arise and make great strides with your training.  No need to wait a whole week until the next lesson!
