Default First timer here!

Hi I'm Eden, my husband and I just got an 8week old pup we have named holly due to the season in which she entered our lives hehe! Holly is our first GSD and we've done the research but have never had a very active breed before! Hoping to get good advice and tips on this exciting journey! We also have a Boston named mini and a bulldog named Walter! I know holly will be a great addition and I'm willing to put in the work! So hit me with your best advice or some funny first GSD stories!

Welcome. She is pretty.
Just be patient and consistent. Oliver is almost 5mos now. He is a work in progress and it is worth every hair pulling/tongue biting moment. There are lots of people here with a vast knowledge. Best of luck! Post lots of pics and cherish while it lasts.

GSD's aren't the easiest breed to raise but the effort put into them really shines through as they mature. Lots of patience

Welcome to the board!!!! I would consider a puppy kindergarten class to start with positive reinforcements.

Good luck with your new pup!!!!
