Wow, thanks for the suggestions!

My parents (Mum especially) was taught how to handle the dog. We got him from a breeders, but they let him dominate by letting him on to couches and he would let nobody near and would be aggressive towards them if they tried to sit in "his space" we have none of that in our house which is what he doesn't like. The Treiball looks really great! I'll definitely look into going to training with him. My mum has had around five shepherds in her life and they were all amazing, sweet dogs. We have a park behind out house where we constantly throw balls for him which I know isn't always enough, but I had no idea you could get all this sort or equipment for dogs and I'm sure my parents don't either so I'm really glad I can look these up now!

I second what Jag said-this is the wrong dog for your family and with the right person he could really shine. What bloodlines is he from?

We are located in Liverpool, England. We take him on several walks a day if possible but he's just never quiet.

Physical and mental exercise aside though, is there any way for us to stop Draco's aggression, jumping etc? He just thinks he can get away with anything with everyone other than myself and my Dad.

Call that trainer and have him come to your home to observe the behavior. This dog has no respect at all for your parents. The trainer needs to teach them how deal with him. If he was good at the trainer's and running all over your parents then the problem is the structure in the home.

I don't know what bloodlines sorry :/
We asked his trainer if he'd like to have him as he really loves him but we've not heard back since and have been looking for a new home for him. I just know we really love him and it's a shame we can't seem to meet his needs. Coming on here was my last idea for trying to help my parents with him and get suggestions.

He has respect for myself and my dad as we ignore him while we're doing something as we were advised to do by a trainer. Whereas my mum makes a fuss of him and so do a few other members of the family that sometimes visit us.

Before we can have a hope in training him though, we need to sort out his disobedience and I just don't know how we can. He needs to listen to all of us, not just one or two

Thanks for all your posts, really appreciate them

Will the trainer come and observe in your house?

ohhhh....find a new trainer. You shouldn't have to smack a dog to get them to behave.

That's exactly what I thought! He's just so impossible.
I make it look like nobody cares or loves him on here but we really do, he gets a lot of cuddles and praise. However again with my mum it's a vicious circle, she pays him attention and he sees this as permission to jump up and mouth her, he gets shouted at, barking/chase begins etc..

It's just so stressful, I really do want to help him so much as he's such a lovely dog and I believe he can be better and so can we.

Does anybody have any advice for me about the pulling hair out of his tail? It really bothers me that he does this and actually pulls himself over most of the time.
