Service GSD Owner/New Member
Hello everyone!

My name is Danielle and I'm 20 years old, turning 21 in January. I live in Florida and am soon moving into a new house that my best friend and I will be renting. Four years ago, I was told that my Generalized Anxiety Disorder was bad enough to be considered a disability. Since then, I was living with pets on my own because I love animals. But I recently made some new friends and have started working with service dogs. I live with 3 dogs, two of which are mine. The first is 2 year old, GSD/Husky mix female named Serena. The second is my baby who I just got in October, Umbra. Full blood GSD from a wonderful breeder that my friend knew personally. I got a great price on an amazing puppy. She's just under 4 months, pushing near 15 commands already, and is so promising. I was recently doing my research on different foods to feed. Currently they are on Nutro Ultra Large Breed Puppy, but in the next month after I move I plan on putting all the dogs on a raw diet. I figured joining here for advice and general sharing of my wonderful pets was a good idea. My dogs are my life, and I'd do anything for them. Anyways, thanks for reading my wall of text and I look forward to getting to know some of you!

Welcome :) I'm also new here and just switched to raw about a month ago. There's a ton of info in the raw feeding/barf section and people here are very nice about answering questions. Good luck!

Down (Verbal and hand signal)
Stay (Verbal and hand signal)
Touch (Verbal and hand signal)

Speak (Verbal and hand signal)
Up (Verbal and hand signal)
