A Thanks for this website and forum.
Less than two years ago, I brought home my first dog, the GSD pup that has grown wonderfully into a healthy constant companion. I was clueless. This board has provided me with more resources, support, opinions, and advice that I could even get started on reading or that any so-called trainer tried to pass off as "business".
My love for the breed has peaked. My knowledge of canines has skyrocketed. My relationship with my dog is wonderful.
So, I wanted to share a few of my absolute favorite resources that have helped me along the way.
1. A must have for all dog owners that could acquire it, and I feel that there should be a required reading and subsequent thesis written on it for all GSD breeders: The German Shepherd Dog in Word and Picture von Stephanitz.
2. The Complete Herbal Book for the Dog Juliette de Bairacli Levy
3. This video
4. YOUR DOG. He/she is the best guide to what they need. Be attentive to your dog, learn your dog, teach your dog, and your dog will be attentive to you, teach you, and forgive you.
This board is great, but more often than not, but lately, all I find in many topics is full of controversy, closed mindedness, false information, and an overall disregard for the people behind the screen. I encourage everyone to keep an open mind.
Above all, thanks for all the volunteering, advice, and time the users, mods, and admins put into this board.
