shar pei /mastiff says alot... and being 1 year old transitioning from silly puppy into young adult when you see their breed traits . I don't consider dogs stubborn, more not interested. My Caucasians are not big on ball games, you may get a couple of interactive moments of engagement lol but it's not what makes them happy or sustainable for training reward , soft toys with squeakers I can milk them a little longer. They begin to change around 7 months old as well. mine are still intact 2, 4, 7. I don't feel altering would of changed their breed traits.

Managing real life for safety ,, and stay the course of Being consistent with your training in non or over stimulating control training environments that you an be productive in OB skills getting and holding attention. Some dogs love to learn skills through (games that have rules) others can learn through daily life skills (structure) sit before fed, getting a leash on, how to enter and exit the house , a room, your vehicle.

If there are triggers that cause fights and scuffles then 100% remove the triggers, feed separately, put up baby gates or crates when they are not behaving appropriately in the household . Dogs respond to structure, to rules. and they go through many phases and changes getting to adult hood when petty puppy, young adolescent things are no longer important to them to react to them. ..
