My sweet pup is very angry!
Ok, Hero is going to be 7 months tomorrow. He has grown into a beautiful and family loving dog. HOWEVEr... if it moves and is not my wife or 2 kids... he barks maniacally at it! I have tried the getting in front of him and telling him enough, we even tried a bark collar but to no effect. I like that he barks when someone is at the door because it will not let anyone sneak up on me which is a concern for me. BUT if someone walks past the window, out on a walk, dog, cat (other than the two in the house), squirrell, anything he barks like crazy! We are in Basic OB class and thankfully there is only one other dog in the class and they had to put up a wall thing to block his view but even that didn't help. I love this dog more than anything and want to help him to be the best he can be but this has to stop! We are getting the prong collar for walking him and class because the trainer doesn't want him on a harness in class. Hopefully this will help with his pulling. My pregnant wife has trouble taking him out because he pulls so hard. I know the number one answer is training and we are doing that but and extra advice would be great! Should I have him nuetered? we dno't plan on breeding him anyway but we were waiting until 1 year so it didn't mess with his growth. (Another reason we are looking to nueter now is that when in the cage he bites or nibbles his manhood and growls at it while hes doing it. it looks very XXX and I stop him when I can but the vet said theres nothing wrong with him down there...) ahhhh GSD's gotta love em
