Sansa's Mom re: wildness- how much exercise and mental stimulation is she getting? You should try feeding one of her meals to her by hand each day and making it into a training session, i.e., making her sit, lay down, etc for her kibble. It will make her more inclined to listen to you, plus, will mentally stimulate her which will settle her down somewhat.

re: attachment/anxiety, do you act very excited when you see her, and when you return from being away from her? It seems to really help separation anxiety when you act like it is no big deal when you greet them. If your puppy goes crazy when she sees you, ignore her until she settles down. It will teach her she needs to calm down to get your attention.

Sp00ks 2 Shepherds ago we had a female with separation anxiety. I mean eat through a door anxiety. The last Shepherd we had gotten some advice somewhere and they said don't say anything to the dog, just leave, don't look at them, say anything just leave. Granted these were two different dogs, but the 2nd had no issues with us leaving and we started that practice from day one. That is also what got us started crate training.

Harry and Lola All shepherds will follow you around, if I move to another room, both mine follow me, even if there were sleeping, they just like being near you and like the pack together.

Be careful with separation anxiety, she needs to learn that it is ok for you to leave because you will always come back. At this age, start by saying to her 'i'll be back later' or whatever you want, then leave for 20 minutes, then come back, make sure the leaving and returning is calm with no over excitement, if she is too excited when you return, ignore her until she is calm then reward her.

Harry and Lola Love the name - puppyzilla (had a few of those myself)

Put her on the lead more often, even inside, be patient and consistent with your training and commands and allow her to understand what it is you want. You are right, you don't want to be too harsh and destroy her confidence, you want to build her up. Also, remember she is only 9 weeks, is still so very young.
