Modifying Adolescent Behavior by Trish King

Modifying Adolescent Behavior
Trish King

A dog leaves puppyhood and enters adolescence at about the age of 5 months, and doesn’t leave it until 2 and a half or 3. The most challenging age is usually between 8 and 18 months. Some dogs pass through this phase with little trouble, but most drive their owners crazy. During this phase, it can be hard for owners to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Many small behavior problems can become large ones. Dogs learn to repeat behaviors that are successful - including bullying, fearful snapping, escaping and mouthing, to name a few until they become perfect. In this session learn to recognize potential problem behaviors and problem dogs. Also discussed is prevention, intervention and modification methods used for this group.

Trish King is the Director of Animal Behavior & Training Department at the Marin County Humane society and the author of "Parenting Your DOG" Publications, drawing on her experiences as a parent as well as a dog owner.

Besides running the B&T department, Trish teaches workshops and seminars on behavior, canine management, temperament assessment and handling difficult dogs. She established the Canine Behavior and Training Academy for new or interested trainers at the Marin County Humane center which covers training theory and techniques, handling dogs and teaching people.
