|Mary Beth||Your pup is acting like a normal gsd pup. My Sting would have had the cat for lunch when he first met her when he was 8 weeks old if I hadn't taught him otherwise There are tons of tips and advice in the Puppy Place forum - so I suggest you start there.|

First,did you read the Sticky in this section?
I had a puppy just like yours, so did many others. Bloody scratched up arms, nope, not fun.
Also, you dog does not need to learn to mix with other dogs. For now, you need to keep him from pestering older dogs. He will get better. Well, mine did.

9 wk old puppy aggression or ne being ridiculous?
Hi everyone new pup bloomin gorgeous,
I understand pups and had many breeds from big slobbery mastifs to t-cup Chihuahua.
I am although new to German shepherds but the breed has been an interest of mine and hubbys for years.
So anyways my pup just turned 9wks and he is 'going for' my cat, at first he was scared of the cat, although the cat shows no aggressive behavior towards him and even tries to sleep by him.
Now this is no problem as cat basically lives on my bed and outside.
Buuut I have introduced him to a few dogs and no matter the size he's running at them and barking and also making a horrid squeal/growl he is biting them and it deffo does not look playful at all .. we have just left him to see what he dies but he will not give up even on a well trained Labrador thst will just stand there and take it.
He won't play with toys at all. We can not stroke or play with him without him biting all up our arms etc I understand this with pups but I don't get why he won't take any interest with any sort of toy, iv tried everything.
It's not like teething biting either its like he's fully biting us.not just chewing on us lol.
I love him to bits and I am looking for obedience classes for him to mix with other dogs
I just need to know wether I'm being ridiculously silly or do you think he may have some issues that will need sorting with extra help?
Any tips hints and advice is muchly appreciated
