Tip #5 – Keeping Your Dog In Line
As it reaches the end of adolescence, your puppy will be calming down and entertaining himself most of the time. He knows what to chew, and where to potty, and how to listen. He wants to mind you and sometimes it is just too hard; he just needs to act out.
The defiance might start small and look careless, but the dog is learning how to take charge of things. You must remain firm to help your dog fit into your routine.
