Some of us can train our own dogs and some can't, no shame in that. You need to do whatever "you" think is the best solution for you and your dog!

It sounds now like you have multiple issues? You need to break it down. The walks are an issue and the car is an issue?

If that's the case. I'd chose the car; if you can get that done ,then maybe you'll feel more confident in dealing with the walking issue?

Break it down, put the dog in the car , open the door, tell him to stay! If he pops out without a command to come out, back in the car, close the door, start over. Open the door and tell him to stay! When he stays, he gets a treat, then you release him from the car and he gets a treat!

If he barks ignore him, one step at a time, just work on the stay and the release. It sounds kinda like he has minimal discipline?

You can work on the stay sit and down using the car. He can't go anywhere so sit and down would be easier with the car?

Does he know Stay Sit and Down? Does he have reliable recall?

You have to decide what you can handle but you can't fix everything at once.

Also he only pulls in a leash when he tries to get near them like in petsmart. He doesn't pull in general. We went on a walk yesterday and another dog was in the front yard in a long leash and he didn't pull me towards him. He did bark a few times but then ignores it. I also had a pinch collar and it seemed to change his attitude. The problem started at the groomer last weekend. They told me he was pulling them to get to other dogs and it could be an issue so that's when I realized maybe it's time to get some more help. He has always barked in there but they have never complained about him being that way. I want to be able to take him to the park while my daughter plays and take him on trails where there are other dogs but I can't with him acting this way. I don't need him to be buddies with every dog but to just not react that way. He weighs 105 and I weigh 115 so u see the problem here. Lol. I want to take him to petsmart and him listen to me BC there he doesn't. He is too distracted and embarrasses me.

His general behavior is fine. It's just around other dogs. He knows his commands well. Also when I open the gate to the car he doesn't come out until i say so. He is great in the house and listens very well. He can see a dog outside off leash and leave it alone. Out neighbors have three dogs an when they are in their yard with now fence he doesn't bother with him. Trainer said when dogs are on a leash we are their property so that's why they act that way. He is fine on walks also. Seems like he just has reactivity issues or aggression towards animal while on a leash. His re call also is fine. Doesn't matter if I tell him quiet in the car BC he won't listen to me.

There's the thread.. I hope it shows up.. If not search for thread title "Board and train vent." I would ignore David Taggart's posts because they seem to irrelevant. Most people had something to say for or against usually justifying.

Oh this is how I got to that thread! It did have some useful info but man, that was wild! It should be edited I would think?

If it was one of the first threads I had seen as a (new) newbie. I'd think GSD people are nuts and OMG what have I done!

Just saying!

doggiedad i taught my dog to lay down when in the car. teach your
dog "quiet", "no barking", or whatever command you want.
i use to sit in the driveway with my dog in the car to teach
car behaviour.

lets say we're going some place and my dog knows where
we're going. when we get close to where we're going if he
whines or barks i allow it as long as it's not overboard.

wyoung2153 I wish I had more experience with those type of facilities but I don't Do what you feel is best ask tons of questions and go with your gut. If something doesn't sound right or feel right, don't do it.

Keep us posted!

I don't like leaving him for two weeks but if he turns out a better dog then it's worth it. He knows a lot and is great in the home but I can't curve his behavior with other dogs. I have tried what I have been told to do! Thanks for the info he weighs almost what I weigh and the guy said it would be hard for me to correct the behavior. I'm going to set up a consult in the next few weeks.

My sister lives in ND and had a trainer tell her the same thing and her dogs are TERRIBLE.. A lot is her but a lot is also her trying this trainer's method on no treats ever for training.. boggle my mind..

Heck, I don't know.. maybe there are dogs out there that don't require treats to train, I've just never seen nor heard of them.

The trainer I spoke with has a very good reputation but doesn't use treats. It cost $1000 to have him sent to boot camp. I have heard many people say that it's totally worth it in the end BC the dog comes back happier. Am I lazy if I take this route and let someone do this for me? He does have private lessons but said he was worried I couldn't handle the pulling he does during training BC he trains them in a pack oriented setting. He said the boot camp would be way more beneficial!
