In answer to your question, "Do you get burnt out with your gsd ever
Am I ever sick? Do I ever feel bad and CAN'T do those things? Have I ever been frustrated at myself
because I couldn't communicate properly to teach it something? YES.
Having had this breed for a long time, I knew what I was getting into before I got them.
I enjoy playing, interacting, walking, talking and training with them...we are a pack. Part of my family. I can't imagine my life without one.
If you are really 'burnt out' and don't want to do those things for your dog, I'm sure she senses that as well.
A lot of what you're saying are BASIC things that this breed, any breed, needs and wants from it's owner.
She's still a puppy and will most likely be a part of your life for the next 10 years, or longer.
I would suggest you try to find a trainer or club.
