I just correct her when she want to lick the poop so she learn that the behavior is not acceptable.

She is a very pretty puppy! I'm glad things are improving nicely. I assume she has stopped eating her poop?

I've found the way to train her!
During walk while there's other dogs, I'll ask her to sit then I put the choke collar like Cesar Millan did.. On the top of the neck. She suddenly change to much obedience puppy during the walk. I've asked my friend to help me to resolved this unwanted behavior on my puppy. Now, he walk his pack ( 1 Rottweiler & 2 Mixed ) with my puppy OFF-LEASH ! [feeling awesome] And I don't have to worry anymore! But she still doesn't know how to introduce herself calmly .. So eager to sniff other dogs butt!
She currently have learned Sit , Down , Shake , Stay ( Down Position ) and recall.
Can't wait to see her get older so she can learn protection & detection from an acquaintances that I met 2 months ago during dog show (which happens to be my boss *I work there temporarily to get experience on handling dogs*). He opens a K9 School. Wish me luck with her.
As for the weight, I'll try to go the vet next month to get her checked.

|StarkPes||Thanks guys. Yes, I'm just estimating the weight because the vet told me she should be around 30 KG that time. We don't get her a medical checkup but simply just 3rd vaccination.|

33 - 35 kgs is about 66 to 77 pounds - that is HUGE for a 5 month old! Every pup is different and they grow at different rates, so I wouldn't be too concerned about the numbers - rather, I'd just look at the dog and see how they are doing.
Your pup looks to be in good weight - not too heavy, and not too thin. Normal to be able to see the slight bulge of a few ribs, and a nice tucked in waist for a healthy and fit GSD. Your vet may just be used to other breeds where if the ribs are showing it means that the dog is underweight.
For an average weight on a 5 month old GSD, I would expect about 50 lbs (around 22 kgs), but that is just an average, so by definition, there will be dogs that are smaller, and dogs that are heavier. Yours will probably end up being quite a big boy!
He looks excellent in the picture - I'd just continue feeding the way you are.

Weight : 30 KG - 35 KG (Increasing due time - I can't recall what vet told me month ago)

The path that I always bring her to walk is in the extremely huge vacant field where she can run freely and free from other dogs. That's why sometime I can't see when she's doing her ''business'' if she walked to far from me.

|1sttimeforgsd||Eating the poop is a nasty phase that lots of pups go through, but thank goodness most grow out of it. Like someone else already mentioned keeping the poop cleaned up is the best way to keep the pup out of it. If it is in a field where other dogs go then that could be a problem, you will just have to look over the area carefully as you are walking and if the pup finds some and starts to eat it you will have to immediately re-direct the pup and tell it no. Good luck.|
