Hi everyone, I have been lurking for quite sometime now. I have a couple questions, and hope to get honest answers. This is my first GSD, and I am still learning every day! If you're going to be mean, save it for the "oops my dog's pregnant" threads =]
I just found out that my husband and I are pregnant. Wasn't planned, but we will be welcoming this child with open arms.
Diesel is only 7 months, so he will be 15 months when the baby arrives.
Is there hope that he will calm down a little by then? Is there anything I can do to prepare him for an infant and the change that is going to be happening in our home?
Our pup hasn't been socialized too well with children...there are not kids in our family, and hardly any neighborhood kids.
How do I socialize my dog with children, when I don't know any?!
And last but not least, I took him to Petsmart to see how he would act, (he loves my friends Pitt) and my lord it was a nightmare. I walked him in the store, and turned around and walked out. He was pulling and barking, and would not listen to a single command. So I decided immediately it was not the place for us!
How do I correct this behavior?
