Default Hello from Vancouver!

Just thought I'd take a moment to say Hello as I'm reading this site daily now, seeing what other baby Shep parents are dealing with! Yup, my Angus seems to be normal!

I got my 'not so' little guy at 8 weeks, he was the most perfect puppy for the first three days haha! Now he's testing the rules of the house daily with holes in my clothes (and hands!). He is 17 weeks old and 43 lbs.

Angus has already breezed though puppy classes, with basic obedience starting in June. Luckily he's incredibly easy to train so when he's older I want to try some agility and tracking. As long as he's using his brain and having fun doing it we will be there.

Anyways I'll keep it short and sweet, glad I found this site for some much needed support when he hits his teens and any other hiccups we run into along the way. I haven't had a GSD since I was a kid, who knew puppies were so much work??

Thanks for reading, Happy Thursday!

Chelsea

I love tracking, it's a ton of fun for both owner and dog

Welcome Chels, cute pup. Remember to take pictures every chance you get, they grow every day and change constantly at these ages.

Hello & welcome! Do you have pics? Where do you take him for training?

I'll have to snap more pics this weekend, he hates the camera so it's usually just a blur zooming by!

I've been taking classes through Zen Dog, I really like the trainer Shannon and it helps she has a couple GSDs herself. I know a few people who have used Zen in the past and had heard great things about it.

Thanks Chels. I've been taking Jazz to TNT Kennels in Langley. They teach positive training techniques, so far so good. I may look into Zen Dog though, one can never have too many training options and it's hard to find trainers who have experience with GSDs.
