Default First German Shepherd Puppy

I've always owned labs, but I've always wanted a German Shepherd puppy. When it came time for a new dog, I decided to finally change things ups and get a german shepherd puppy. Unfortunately, I got him way too early for his socializations need (4 weeks old), but after seeing the deplorable conditions he was in, I had to bring him home.

He is now 3 months old and seems to be doing great! He hasn't had an accident in the house in weeks, knows how to sit, lay down, and stay. He plays really well with other dogs as well. I did have a few questions though.

He is extremely dominate towards other dogs and people except myself and a few of the other people he is constantly around. Sometimes he can also appear to be really aggressive.

He sometimes has what I like total meltdowns where he is practically scream barking when he cant get right by my side.

He can be really bad about biting my legs and feet sometimes. He
has even ripped a pair of my jeans and seems really aggressive at times.


Is all of this normal for a german shepherd? If not, what can I do to correct the problem? I just want to ensure he turns out to be a good dog.

Thanks!
