Not just because of the jumping up, but if she got into the road, or ran up to a dog who was dog-aggressive, you could end up with some big trouble.
I'd rather have a GSD that is unusually friendly than the reverse. She sounds like a confident, light hearted dog.
Do you have any suggestions for more solid recall training?
And as far as light hearted, I don't think there is a more light hearted dog, she just loves everything haha.
