Hello everyone

I never got a chance to introduce myself. I am the proud owner of a 3 month old tomorrow, GSD. I am very happy about my Wolfie, though we have gone through some health issues immediately once I got him I am hoping that he will be totally fine now that we got him his shots, as well as a new dewormer for his specific worms.

I was already training him but because he needs to be on an ID diet I am wondering how I can train him without the use of treats, I have been using positive reinforcement. I'm hoping he responds to that as well.

I would like to get him into a training class after he has all tertiary of his shots.

If anyone has any suggestions for Woflie for a trainer or just wants to help a new owner to the breed, you can always IM me or talk to me in this thread.

Thanks for everyone that has reached out and helped so far.

I hope to continue to do what I need to do with Wolfie. So that he can grow up to be big and strong.

use boiled chicken breast instead of id
use them for his training treats instead of for or in place of a meal

I am thinking chicken breasts anything to make him eat. Though I want him to have a balanced diet. But he just doesn't eat much wet food or dry food
