|Deer Dave||I just wanted to let everyone know we had a very nice time at the Staatsmacht kennels today. The people who train there are super nice and I learned a lot. Stefan has a first class operation and was also a wealth of knowledge. It was definitely worth the trip up there, it is a hour and forty five min. drive for me and I was surprised that other people travel a lot further almost on a weekly basis just to train with Stefan. Thanks again to Stefan and all the people we met today for a wonderful time.|

|Deer Dave||It sounds like you got a great dog from the Staatsmacht kennels. It's nice that your dog is so well adjusted he can be part of so many activities in your life. I can't wait to see their facility and meet their dogs. Watching them train should be fun, sounds like a lot of people are training with them. I will let you know how it goes this weekend.|

We also train with Stefan. Wish we could be there to meet you on Sunday, but we will be at the cabin. Maybe we will see you around

He is sweet and cuddly. He is very trainable because of his food and toy drive. Loves to go dock diving at our cabin. Willing to go anywhere. Does well with all people, yet has a nasty bark when someone first comes to our house. When they are invited in, he is fine. Even though he loves people, when we are out and about, he doesn't have to be petted by everyone. He always wants to be with us (especially me) and is the best running buddy. He also LOVES to run on the treadmill on days when the weather is bad.
I have a preference for a dog that is always ready to go with me wherever and get me out of the house. He is also a goof ball and fun. My other GSD that I have would be content never leaving the house. I have never had a bad GSD. They have all been great in their own ways and overall have all had wonderful temperaments. His temperament just fits my personality well.
Had to attach this picture of us at the cabin in the canoe

I also have a Staatsmacht dog. He will be 2 in October.
Captain von der Staatsmacht
He has drive and needs an active home, but settles very well in the house and is great with kids. He lives with 4 little girls and 2 other dogs. My in-laws have cattle on their farm and when we are up there he will chase them if I don't keep an e-collar on him and watch him. We are not up there enough to really train him to leave them alone, but I think it could be done. I grew up on a farm and had show line german shepherds and they would chase cattle too. He has not had any health issues. He is for sure one of my favorite dogs that I have ever owned.
