Hi from a Newbie
I just wanted to take a second and introduce myself and my wonderful GSD! I have been involved in the dog guide industry for a number of years, and currently am working my two-year-old female GSD, Diamond. I purchased her from a responsible breeder at around 8 months of age, and finished her training when she was around 16 months. Aside from guiding, she also retrieves dropped objects and does light counter-balance work.
I do private dog training--basic pet obedience and service work--but aside from that I teach Linguistics at a local university while I work on my dissertation. I am hoping to finish my PHD by May, 2015, after which I will concentrate more on working with service dogs and their handlers.
I joined this forum to learn as much about the GSD as I can, so look forward to talking with everyone!!
