Not been on the forum for a while because I have been very busy but Brody is doing really well and is a much happier dog and I am a much happier owner. I really do think a lot of problems stem from seperation anxiety, she really loves her mum and when I dissapeared again for a week while in hospital in January when I came home her behaviour had gone through the roof. All of the dogs were very unhappy and thats now much improved, sams diahreah is no more after a course of antibiotics and a change in diet. I think kennelling the dogs if i have to stay in hospital again might be a good idea as their behaviour doesnt seem affacted.
We did have one mishap this morning, I threw Brody's ball for her and it bounced off a wall and brody the silly dog slammed into the wall with her collar bone. I was at least 100 metres away and heard a loud thud. I was very worried about her but luckily she seems fine, I wont be letting her run off the lead for a few days just to be sure as she does seem a little sore, so its going to be gentle off lead walks for a few days. Next time no throwing balls towards a wall
Thank you once again for all your comments.

I'm on a couple of Boxer Boards, and you really can't talk straight to most of those folks cause well there, kinda like there dogs...Momma he's being mean to me!
I tried to find out how "couch eating dogs happens and I get accused of being a know it all??? So I have to use my soft indoor voice over there!
Anyway bottom line? I think it's a form of separation anxiety? Boxer folks put up with a lot of ill behavior (I don't) because..well their cute and yes they do look guilty because, they did it and they know that you know they did it but...oh look at that face!
Anyway I see you said above that pulling is an issue your worried about? How bout working on a low stress at home solution, instead of the walk?
Give it shot, you can work his mind and not put him or you under any stress and don't worry about the clicker, I never used one myself.
Give it a shot regardless of what your going to do ultimately.

Thank you for your reply......I can take her out for an hour first thing at 7am when there are no other dogs about, if required I will adjust the times to make it so no other dogs are about. I asked a lady while we were in the car and she said 7am is usually quiet, all the time Brody was howling in the boot as i was talking to her, i have had to learn to switch off to this howling in these types of situations. I dont think brody will hurt another dog as I think she just wants to play but i cannot have her tugging at me to get to other dogs and i cant risk letting her near other dogs unless its in a controlled environment. There is a very good dog behaviourist local to me who can hellp with this.
I havnt contacted any GSD rescues I only came to the decision that enough was enough yesterday though I have been researching how to rehome a problem GSD and a friend of mine suggested I use a forum so i joined this forum yesterday.
I will not rope her to the seat again.
Thank you for the video link on first viewing i can see how useful it is and i will no doubt watch it again several times.
I hope Brody gets the owner she deserves, sadly thats not me anymore. It will break my heart to let her go but i know its for the best all round, for her, me and my other 3 dogs.

I don't really have any advice. I just want to say how sorry I am that you are experiencing health issues plus the stress of your GSD. I can't even imagine the strain you are under, but I know it is only hurting you health. I am praying that there is a rescue who will be able to step up to help you and your sweet girl. I believe that the problems you are having with her can be dealt with. Unfortunately, the problems are just too much for you at this time.
