Sorry, I don't have any specific ones. I've seen this site recommended to people looking for videos, maybe it can be useful.

Might want to rule out any potential health problems too. Do you have access to training classes there? If no, maybe try looking through you tube videos for people working with their dogs and going through different commands. Consistency is key, the dog needs to know what to expect from you.|

A 3 and a half year old GSD
I am a new member here. I just had a GSD last month -called Kaiser- from friends of mine who left the country and couldn't take him with them. He has basic training, but he doesn't listen from first time unless he knows that he'll get a treat after it. I've tried to let him meet other dogs but he never stops barking when he sees them. I live in Jordan in the middle east, and since people here are not very much used to seeing dogs, they keep on barking at him and sometimes throwing stuff when I'm walking him, especially the kids, so I try to play with him in the front yard instead of walking him and it doesn't seem that he has a drive to play that much, maybe because of the very hot weather? How can I correct his behavior and make him obey from the first time and how can I let him stop barking when he sees other dogs or cats?
PS: I've never had a dog in my life and I'm not very experiences, so any help would be very much appreciated, especially that I couldn't get a professional because they ask too much here and I can't afford it.
Thanks in advance
