I know how frustrating it can be. I had someone tell me that my pup should have been already neutered when he wasn't even a year old yet. Fortunately they never mention weird sexual stuff! Even more fortunate I didn't have to be nice to them, so I was sarcastic instead and asked them since when did they become a vet - maybe they'd like to share their opinion on hormones and how that affects growth? Yeah, thought so, lol.
Its complicated. I'm living in employer provided accommodation, in a shared apartment. Not allowed to have pets.

But the housing director knows us, and that my flatmate doesnt have a problem with the dog & we're in the process of having him registered in a neighbour's name, who lives in a family unit... Single accommodation & family units are allowed to have pets.

And some people have more rights than others too. Its sad but true.

So its better for me to keep a low profile & stay out of trouble.

I used to have that on a key-chain. Very sad that I lost it... Fortunately, I have kept the semi-tolerant attitude.

I wonder if other breed owners (dobermans, mastiff, boxers, collies etc.) recieve as much unsolicited "expert" advice for their dogs? Personally, I like to believe that GSDs are special in every way.

Like I said, I thought she was just being friendly & engaging in casual chat when she asked about the dog and "what can he do".

I posted on another thread about not knowing how to train him on good social manners for he seems to choose who to make friends with. I can't find a trainer here to work with, so if anyone has any suggestions on how I can train him by myself, please kindly share.

I am already trying to stop him from chasing cats by shortening the leash & calming him down making him sit then reward him when he does so. There is a slight improvement but I really dont know how I can stop it totally. And the stray dogs! They're everywhere & very territorial. I just fell into a drain the other night trying to pull Magick back from them.

And kids, yes they chase & provoke him, throw little stones too. I try to prevent but its just not possible because when I get down from our apartment and there they are. Or they see him from afar and start screaming & running towards us. I dont even know whose kids are those and parents are nowhere in sight! >.<

At least you have the internet to vent!
Are GSDs popular in Saudi Arabia? and what do you think a more "acceptable" breed would be to the woman who made the comment to you?
As a matter of fact, they are indeed popular here! I do see a lot of them when at the vet's.

But where I live, its only me who has a big dog.

I have no idea what would be an acceptable breed for her, perhaps a poodle?
