Question dog training issues?

The last couple of months our boy has become really misbehaved its almost as if he got to a year old and all sense went out the window. He won't follow any commands barks constantly over nothing and his recall is non existent. He got out this morning an I had to chase him down the road as he wouldn't come back honestly at a loss what to do with him We've had dogs before and never had any that acted like this

Any ideas or suggestions appreaciated

He's become a stroppy teenager, go back to basic training with treats. It will pass. Don't give him any leeway, be strong! Threaten a trip to the vets too! He might calm down with the chop! Although I've never had to have any boys done. Just firm handling and training.

Mine definitely got naughtier at about 14 months, it is the joys of being a teenage dog! Just persevere with your training and be firm about what is and isn't acceptable. We are at 19 months now and he has calmed down again.

I agree - he's a doggy teenager. I think the hormones and more assertiveness kick in and they start pushing their luck and testing the boundaries a bit.

Our miniature schnauzer is 6, and when he comes home from the kennels after our holidays he is initially a bit clingy and very tired and hoarse from all the barking and generally being nosy he does at the kennels. After a few days he gets a bit stroppy as he settles back down, and he has to re-learn his place a bit.

We have a springer and went through exactly the same thing, she will be 17 months next week and is now what we wanted, calm in the house, and plays when we want to, but the past siz months have been hard, I thought it would never end. Ypu'll get there, just stick to your guns.

Oh I'm so glad to read this thread.

We have a 14 month old Maltese and he has been a perfect dog until very recently, he has started barking at nothing, won't listen to our commands and generally thinking he can do what he wants. He was neutured last Friday and I thought he would calm down a bit but so far that hasn't happened, although it's early days yet.

Yup, he's a teenager! My current cocker spaniel went backwards with pretty much everything - chewing, pooping and beng damn right disrespectful! The good news is that he's two now and I realised the other month that he'd got an awful lot better since about Easter time. I'd not realised it at first, but looking back I'd say that he's over the worst of it now and can be trusted more.

Also breed dependant as those natural instincts kick in!

My mini dachshund was 100% up till around the year mark then recall got worse as hound instincts kicked in. Repetition and consistency is key.

We also have a collar that vibrates (very low) but it's enough to get her nose off the ground and listen then she happily trots back, it's just the getting her out of the 'zone'
