    Depends on the dog - as with people. Longest teen rebellion I ever had was 13 months, shortest 2 weeks (but oh! Those 2 weeks!!!).
    As I became more experienced, teenage phases were less testing, simply because I knew better how to handle them. I wish I had that 13 monther back again - I'd do a lot that was different nowadays.

    It makes me smile when scientists "discover" what the rest of us have known for centuries. All mammals and birds have a teenage phase. We call our adolescent garden blackbirds "Kevins" because they are such obnoxious little chaps. (For anyone called Kevin who is about to get annoyed, there is a television comedy adolescent called Kevin.)

    With some it is permanent thing...they never even realize they should have grown out of it... :rolleyes: Or maybe they move straight from extended teenage rebellion to stubborn old age rebellion? o_O:rolleyes:
