Default first time GSD owner in seattle area

Hello, My name is Matthew. My wife and I adopted a female GSD puppy around the beginning of March. Cocoa is now 13 weeks old, a fiery bundle of love and full of pee and vinegar. (in a good way) She weighs in at around 22 lbs and has paws the size of my palm... oh boy!

I am working to keep her body and mind excercised. Her intelligence and aptitude truly impress me. I feel i have to keep up with her!

Anyhoo, thanks in advance for information/tips i will find here.

Cheers.

Welcome! I think you'll learn a lot. What helped us was learning about raw feeding and some strategies for positive training during a difficult adolescent stage. Lots of great photos just for fun too!

She's very pretty.

Bella, weighed in at 35.8 and has a 21" waist @ 16 weeks, she was put on a diet today; as she lost her pretty hippy figure eating too much.
