Shibas also go through a behavioral “growth spurt” and social changes during adolescence (5 months to 2 years of age).  These mood & behavioral changes can become compounded if you do not spay or neuter your pet.  Owners who do not get professional training of any kind during a dog’s puppyhood and adolescence are more likely to struggle.  Regrettably, many dog owners throw in the towel before their dog reaches maturity and never know what a great dog they were destined to be.
