Simon has a high mental drive, too, if that makes sense. Sherle from Sequoyah GSD was kind enough to email me back as she has a full sister to Simon's grandfather on Simon's mother's side. Sherle said even though there is mostly show line dogs in Simon's pedigree, there is a very strong working line influence, too, through this grandfather. Simon is 1/4 from a police/narcotic detection breeding kennel out of Oregon (on mother's side). He has a crazy high prey drive. Always looking for something to do in the house. I'm working on dog reactivity. Lou Castle protocols with Dogtra 2300 is helping. When I can trust him better, we can get out more for exercise. Reactivity got bad two months ago. So trying to get a handle on dealing with an adolescent GSD male! Throwing a lot of balls in the yard!!
Zeager is Simon's dad and Lena from Flood Farm GSDs in Long Beach, WA is the bitch. Simon was born 2-3-14 at Flood Farm. Lots of Kirschental (herding) on the mom's side. The Monks of New Skete took a male from the same breeding the year before (New Skete Laith) and came back and took 2 puppies from Simon's litter since they like the first boy from the year before.
Actually, I get it at a pet store called Benson's. (locally owned but they have a few stores) Could you maybe ask a store in your area if they'd get it & carry it for you? I know the people at Benson's have been willing to do that for me (for cat food I needed that they didn't have in their store). And when I was feeding Orijen Dog food (different dog) another locally owned feed store (Sutherland's) was willing to special order it for me. Good luck!
Hi, been a while! Sorry havent checked this site in a while, well sure hope your puppy is ok please let me know, Bogee is doing awesome hes just over 6 mos now and weighs like 74 lbs i think, wheres ur guy at?
Oh definitely let me know if you're ever over this way! Google "the leash trick." I read about it on this forum & found info on Google search. Basically you hook the leash to the collar as you normally would, run the lead down the side of the dog, put it under the belly, come up on the other side, loop it under itself once. It acts like a choke collar but in the hindquarters/under the belly. At first he crocodile death-rolled like crazy but a LOT of treats instantly fixed that. He caught on in maybe 30 seconds. No lie. When he gets too far ahead (just a tiny bit works) you tug & he falls back easy next to you. After a bit he corrects himself. Who knew it would be THAT easy?!?! And I have to say I love the expression Tiger gives you in those pictures. What a face!
