I once knew a GSD called Princess, I used to cringe everytime the owner called her by name.

I am a very extroverted, fun, easy going person but I knew when I chose a GSD that I would have to "talk the talk and walk the walk" when it came to his training. multiple friends of mine have made comments like "she is serious about her dog now" and "how much time DO you spend training him?" and "How many weeks does he have left for training" (when he is no longer breathing of course). That is followed up with "your dog is so gentle with my baby and great with kids" so I hope one day they understand that those two things go together and won't belittle me over it.
I am a stay at home mother and both of my children are school age, but I walk every morning with friends who bring their children in strollers (I bring my dog and use it as a training opportunity). Samson (dog) has been nothing but gentle with them all and will lick their little toes and lay by their strollers while we chat at the end. I had one mom say last week, "Maybe you can come train my dog. I would never be able to bring him on a walk like this." My dog is 5 months. So I guess I am serious when it comes to him, but not in general.

|DixieGSD||I dont think im a very serious person. I laugh, joke and am pretty friendly. But when it comes to my dog, yes I'm a serious person. We have a ton of fun training but i do expect her to do what is asked of her, and i guess expect her to act a Certian way when were out and about. And i do get comments about being to serious with her, but what they dont understand is she'll take advantage and run with it, so i can't let up on her lol shes a very testy girl haha|

|fredh||I would consider myself to be both serious and committed when it comes to my GSD. The more effort you put into something the better the reward.|

I think certain subjects need to be treated seriously. There is a reason that most of us do have passion and don't take lightly the way the breed is headed.
So, do your smart ass comments fall into the bolded category? lol

My GSD is loving towards everyone, silly, fun, very social, very friendly, very smart, easy to train and gets along with other dogs, cats, kids and adults. He loves kids. He is only serious when it comes to guarding his yard or when he is trying to keep me safe.
I am only loving towards people I like, I can be fun but mostly I am really funny, I am silly and I don't like to take things seriously unless I absolutely have to. I am not that friendly, I am not very smart lol, I am definitely not easy to train, I am more like a Siberian Husky "what's in it for me." I don't get along with people, especially children but I am excellent with dogs and cats. If I call you my friend then I am loyal to you, I will do anything for you and I will always have your back even when you are in the wrong. I am fiercely protective of my animals and of my loved ones. If you are not my friend then I can be a terrible enemy. Once you are on my poop list, you most likely will stay there. I also can be incredibly mean, I stick up for the underdog but anyone else is fair game. It's not a great quality to have but it runs in my family, my sister and mom are the same way.
