Yes – it is not a phase – you have inadvertently taught that ‘disobedience’ is a rewarding behaviour. Because disobedience is now rewarding to the dog, now he will allways ignore you when it suits him, thats what he has been taught to do.

to clarify

what i would say is
‘you have inadvertently taught that ‘disobedience’ is a rewarding behaviour. Because disobedience is now rewarding to the dog, and he has learned choice – and at this phase in his life when there is hormone development – then learning needs to be conducted and re-enforced at the lowest criteria’
