Hi all, first time pup owner. You have already seen various threads I've been starting. I just have a couple of questions, what are the difficult periods/ages of a puppy? Like when and what should I expect?
Yes, this stage is know joke. There is a thread out there now with a bunch of us with this age pup where people vent. It is fun at times but boy o boy do they push you. Just had a walk this morning that detailed everything the above post said. A normal 15 min walk took 30. The vets on here says it passes so here's to hoping they are right!Mine definitely went through a terrible teens time from about 8 to 10 months old. She would seriously throw temper tantrums as bad as any overtired kid's in WalMart. We'd be walking along just fine, and suddenly she'd start pulling, biting at the leash, jumping around, down on the ground, refusing to calm down, refusing to listen, going nuts. I'd literally have to stand there and just let her get it out. People would be looking at me like, "you need to get that dog some training..." Thing is, she WAS trained. But she was in a brat stage.
It passed. She recalled all the previous training, and life went on...
But if you know it's coming, it's a little bit easier. And you know it WILL pass. Really and truly. And then it's all nothing but good from there!So basically I'm going through the teething stage. But then there's a teenage stage around the corner. Wow, they really do keep us on our toes!
