Default Mika says hello

Hello, I will post some pics soon, but for now some info. We are proud owners of a 5 month old GSD (had her since 8 weeks). She is a long hair girl from a great breeder in Ontario and is CKC registered. She's now 5 months and listening to what she's told is not her strong suit. Look forward to spending some time on here reading up and sharing experiences

A hearty WELCOME from Caledon, Ontario!

Really interested in your experiences with your puppy. I also just purchased an 8 week old puppy from a recommended breeder in Ontario but have decided to keep it with the breeder for training until she is 6 months old. I am very curious to see if I made the right call and really won't know until I compare experiences with others in a few months.

All the best to you and your puppy. From my over one hundred hours of researching training methods the two words that really stand out are PATIENCE and CONSISTENCY.

To answer the breeder question, she is from Wild Winds in Arthur, Ontario. Kathy there breeds black shepherds but also just regular ole black and tans as well. Mika has a lot of grey in her fur, seems to take after her dad Thor

Thor vom Kraftwerk 2

And I think more specifically his mother
SG Tabbenoca vom Kraftwerk

Her long fur from her mom

What a cutie. German shepherds a strong willed dogs. They could turn into monsters if you let them. Just remember, YOU are the boss of your house. I don't mean beat them or anything. I had a female American bred ( and personaly I think they are easier going the german breds-- Just what I have seen with my personal experience ) When she growled at me, I grabbed her by her cheeks and got in her face and said," Don't ever growl at me again." She never did. I love my dogs to death. I would throw myself in front of a charging rino to save them but I will NOT tolerate showing me aggression. Totally NOT acceptable. I am the boss of my house.
