Puppy stages- Because puppy. 2-7/8 months is good to start training and socialization, then around 8 months, and continued to 2 years for some breeds, the puppy teens kicks in and they are in overdrive. Everything you taught them goes out the window and they are wild and crazy. I'm going through it right now. Trying to train a five month old puppy. He has his good days and crazy puppy days.
Beyond the 2-3 years- bad, lack of, or NO training at all, no socialization, neglect and/or ignorance on the owners part. Many breeds require daily exercise, walks, mental stimulation, ect. People also get LAZY with training, thinking their puppy is good to go at 8 months, then they stop and give in too much, because that's better than whining, tearing up the house, being safe with the dog. My mother-in-law had the sweetest boxer in the world, however, when she got into her puppy teens, she couldn't handle her. Besides "quiet," "drop it," and not doing her business in the house, she was wild all over again. Jumped on everyone, didn't listen worth a damn. My MIL let her go crazy and gave in because that was "better" (NOPE) than dealing with her.

• "What are the reasons why a dog is unruly?"
How about explaining why YOU have joined the cowards, idiots, obsessives, paranoids, ranters and trolls who HIDE their avatar and username behind the boring [Anonymous] label?
If you have more brains than your dog, you should know which of these apply in your case:
🦊1: The owner incompetently chose an arrogant, bossy pup.
🐶2: The owner failed to stay HOME with the puppy and provide enough enjoyable experiences for the puppy to choose to "bond" with the owner.
🐕🦺3: The owner failed to join a weekly training class/group and get COACHED for about a year to improve his/her own awareness, body-language, consistency, timing and use of the leash, of praise-&-rewards, and of voice-tones.
🐕4: The owner doesn't take the dog for enough on-leash explorations, and at home doesn't play enough games that the dog LIKES. Ergo, the owner should NEVER have children!
