Did you know a giant breed’s adolescent period can last from 6 months of age to 3 years? They don’t all last that long, but some do!
You know your dog is hitting their adolescence when you want to pull your hair out. Atka has never been destructive or done anything “bad”. This week alone we’ve had three incidents.
1. He jumped onto the couch, put his head in my backpack, pulled out some of my clothes, and shredded them. He left the evidence all over the living room floor.
2. He took the door mat from the back door, drug it into the yard, and proceeded to chew it up.
3. He dug up the TV cable wire and chewed it in half.
Time to up the exercise and stimulation to keep this big puppy out of trouble!
What have you experienced during your dog’s adolescence?
