AryaStark Thanks everyone! Stevenzachsmom, I'm going to train her myself, but if I run into any problems or when I find a more stable job that pays better, I found a place near me that offers dog training. Going to research it a bit more, but it seems like it's reputable and has good reviews, so that's an option too in the future.

Stevenzachsmom Congrats to you and Zoe! Are you going to use a different trainer now? I wouldn't stick with someone I didn't like. Plenty of trainers out there and life's too short.

My Pup Graduated!

I just wanted to share the good news with my fellow German Shepherd fans--my Zoe graduated from basic obedience two weeks ago!

While it seems silly, I'm so thrilled because I was having some issues with the trainer and I was afraid she wasn't going to perform. I'm still weaning Zoe off of treats, but I was honestly so worried the night before our last session that she was going to require treats and then I'd get yelled at by the trainer.

Well, I shouldn't have worried-Zoe performed beautifully! There were one or two hiccups where she did need a treat, but the trainer was very impressed with our progress. Given all the stress of the past few months, I was so happy that I almost cried out of sheer relief.

Now, we're working on non-verbal commands for sit, down, stay, and stand while learning fun tricks like crawl, spin, etc. Going to start long line work and improving recall in the park when it's a little warmer out too.

So yea, my little pup passed with flying colors. She's such a good girl and I'm so proud of her!
