Hello from NE Ohio

I will be a new GSD owner next month (June) when my pup is ready. I've raised puppies before but never this breed. I'm looking forward to learning a lot from the experiences people share here.

Thanks!

Hello and congrats from central Ohio (a NE Ohio transplant). I am a long time dog owner but first time GSD owner as of this time last year. I have learned quite a bit from hanging around the forums and hope you do as well. My first piece of advice is to put expensive things in drawers. These pups get big very quickly. I left my brand new uninsured cell phone on the counter. Indie was only 5 months old and was able to get at it and proceeded to destroy it. Take loads of pics as well!

Thanks for the response! I have a lot to learn, and I've already started. It's been ten years since I've potty trained. I'm also researching the best methods and places to start obedience/behavioral training. Hopefully I'll network with more owners near me.
