New German Shepherd (Mina)
Hello, I've been browsing this forum the past few weeks and have found a lot of information to help me and my new puppy.I figured I would introduce myself and my puppy so I could say thank you to all those who provided the much needed trips and tricks. I am new owner of a 7 week old purebred German Shepherd named Mina. She is the first German Shepherd I've owned, I've had rescues in the past and still own two. It's a big adjustment for myself and Mina as we are learning together. Mina is a very loving (borderline Klingy) Germanline Working dog, her descendants were police dogs and she is very smart for only being 7 weeks old. She already knows five commands pretty consistently if we are in a low distraction area, and takes to being socialized very well. I hope in the time ahead as she grows we will find what training works for her, get past the " land shark stage" and be able to sleep alone in her crate with minimal pee breaks. Thank you all for the knowledge and the willingness to share it with others.
