Adolescents Anonymous

You just get out of the chaos of puppyhood and suddenly your puppy is a teenager and you're back to thinking "what have I done?" You are not alone! Most surrenders are adolescent dogs and now we know why. 

But that's not going to be you - you'll have the tools to be able to work through adolescence and even enjoy it! The dog you love is still in there - they're just battling their hormones right now and need you to be equipped to help them.

Whether you're enrolled in group training or not, you need a simple, easy-to-follow plan that gives you effective strategies, eases your mind, and guides you when you feel overwhelmed.

You might be struggling with a dog who isn't listening, doesn't come when called, has started counter-surfing, barking at dogs on leash, and straight-up refusing to be handled.

This course is for you.

Adolescents Anonymous is a spectacular stand-alone program or addition to your current in-person training.

  • Revisit basic training so that you can refresh your dog's memory of all the work you put into puppyhood.

  • Read your dog's cues and body language so you can better predict their ...unpredictable behaviour.

  • Prevent escalations in leash-reactivity and other challenges like counter-surfing and excessive barking.

  • Teach your dog to tolerate and even enjoy handling.

  • Train a rock-solid recall so that they actually come when called.

  • Modify that pesky resource guarding that showed up seemingly "out of the blue".

  • Thrive. Don't just survive.

YES! I NEED THIS!

Take it from a few of our students: 

Chelsea & "Harlow"

Caryn has been amazing in so many ways - she is insanely knowledgeable, she and her team are organized and quick to respond, and her warm personality and sense of humour shine through even in an online format.

Although I haven't worked with Caryn in person (due to Covid), I always look forward to the Membership Q&A's, where we not only get all our questions answered, but also feel a sense of community.

Caryn goes above and beyond her duties and always makes you (and your dog!!!) feel valued.

The online trainings, workshops, and forums have all been a huge help while I embarked on raising my first puppy.

I am *so* glad Caryn was recommended to me and I would highly recommend her to anyone else!

Celine & "Luna"

The TCCE is AWESOME! I HIGHLY recommend them if you want to get your puppy started off on the right foot (or paw)! My puppy (and I) learned so much from TCCE.

Now that she's getting a bit older, we're noticing just how much of a positive impact  their positive reinforcement ways have had on us as a family!

She has her days, but she's honestly so well behaved (for her age) and she respects us a lot!

A BIG THANK YOU to Caryn!!! You are amazing!!!!

Dahlia & "Finnegan"

We signed Finnegan up for socialisation classes at TCCE and then the pandemic hit so we didn't get to attend a single in-person (or in-dog, I should say) class.

But all was not lost. Caryn has assembled the most AMAZING online resources that address everything we need and more. 

I have so many examples of how Caryn has helped us (without even knowing it) but here is one: "happy talk." We live right downtown and happy talked our little guy through garbage trucks, motorcycles, construction sites, fire engines, ambulances and all kinds of other mayhem. He is a confident big city little dog now.

Caryn knows dogs but she also knows people. That's her magic.

Susan & "Neil"

We were nervous new puppy guardians...wanting to do the right things to take care of our Bedlington Terrier, Neil and wanting to teach him to be a happy member of our family.

We needed support and in these times of Covid were uncertain how we could get this support. 

Enter Caryn and TCCE. We were referred to her by a friend, a dog walker, and also our Vet.

We loved the website and all the info available. And the online support was very valuable...we felt truly supported in a style that was gentle and loving as opposed to dominating.

The Membership Q&A's are great, we had our questions answered it felt very "in-person".

TCCE was a great help for our family. We had questions and got answers from a trusted and reliable source.

Do you have reservations about online learning?

I can imagine what you're thinking. You're thinking that you need a private trainer to come to your house to observe your dog and the way you and your family are interacting with them.

I hear you. I truly do.

Now, hear me.

I've been doing this a long time and I have trained thousands of adolescent dogs. I have done in-home training, in-school training, small groups, large groups, online group coaching, online 1:1 coaching, I've trained veterinarians, trainers, vet techs, dog walkers and boarders, shelter staff, and rescues/fosters.

I've seen it all. 

One of my super-skills is listening to people, not just dogs. I know what you're facing. 

I also know what it's like to adopt a dog and feel like I'm in over my head and feeling anxious about it, myself!

I know that you are being inundated with advice from many different sources and maybe you're struggling to figure out what is going to work and what is going to backfire.

My job is to save you time hunting and pecking for bits and pieces of information that may or may not work, to provide you with science-based information vs. pseudo-science, and to help you succeed.

When you join Adolescents Anonymous, you get the roadmap you need.

Even if you're already enrolled in group classes, playdates, private training, or watching 3 hours of YouTube videos each night...this course is going to give you what you can't get elsewhere.

If you feel like you need more support, we have an optional membership that you can join when you sign up and you'll get access to me, five days a week and SO MUCH MORE. (Seriously. This membership is drool-worthy.) 

Let me help you thrive, not just survive adolescence.

Yes. Let's do this!

Karen & "ChiChi & Poppy"

I have taken two puppies to TCCE - they were very different and both got what they needed to get a good start in life.

It is rare to find trainers who have such respect for a dog that they take the time and apply their expertise to see what particular dogs need to do to express themselves and build their relationships.

I have also gotten very realistic and useful help in dealing with a troubled dog and I am very grateful for the compassion and care we received.

I really recommend TCCE.
