I just wanted to say 'hey' and I probably will be checking out a lot of info. on here and asking bunches of questions probably. A little over a month ago, we were out for a drive in the country and ended up at this old farm place - we had saw they had their shepherd puppy for sale on the internet - and anyway, we were up that way and this 6 month old Shepherd was tied to a dog house, no water, on a big old sand dune. She was all boney and ribs. Well, needless to say, we took her and she has put on weight
and LOVES to walk. I swear she has husky in her. I take her sometimes 4 times a day! (I'm currently not working so I have the time)...but any how, she has a lot of vices - none of which can't be fixed though - God willing! I plan to take her to some obedience classes in a couple weeks. She PULLS a lot when walking. She developed this nasty habit of 'chasing' butterflies and bugs from being neglected prior to us. I'd really like some advice on how to 'break' this as she has dragged me down on a couple occasions. Also, I am thinking about running with her, because she just has SO much energy that it makes it difficult to keep around our other dogs (dachshunds). She likes to pounce on them...Suggestions? Thanks so much and hope to hear from some professionals on here.
