Barking at dogs?
I have a couple questions. I read on here a lot to make sure Keira is on a good track, and I've been reading about not taking them to dog parks when they're older? I would just like to know why? Also, Keira seems to be afraid of a lot of dogs, I took her to the vet a few days ago and she had the hairs on her back raised and let out a few barks. I was afraid maybe she was leaning towards aggression, but she sat between my legs and started backing up under the chair. She is very interested in other dogs but scared I think. She plays with the neighbors little dog through the fence, and tries to play with our grumpy chihuahua. Otherwise she's had only a few other interactions. I've taken her to the dog park once and have been meaning to go back, and now I'm reading on here about not taking GSD's to the dog park and I would really know to know why? All the reading I've done about the breed says they need lots of socialization... She does great with people though. She gave the vet lots and lots of kisses... Though she tends to get really excited when people visit us at the house... Anyway any and all answers are greatly appreciated! Thank you. =] (sorry I blabber sometimes... I want the best for her, and I'm proud of her)
