haha Those spare boots of mine are too heavy for sable to use as a hat but I'm sure she'd love to. She started out trying to slaughter the laces now she's just crazed about getting the sole out of the shoe. Thankfully my boots are not worn now either they served the same purpose of a doorstop. I should go ahead & give them the other room to hang in. Maybe they could sleep in there they both share the bed with me. I want to try to wean them out of that as Sable will become quite larger than my Stewart & their both cover hogs! Sable likes to pull my hair as my new very efficient alarm clock.

LOL Oh no!!!! Shoe diving!!!! I'm still trying to break Dax of that one. He's obsessed with shoes I haven't worn in about 2 years. Their only purpose anymore is to keep the bedroom door propped open so the cats done accidentally get locked in. Shoes are still in good shape to be worn if I wanted to but I need new laces because he's apparently learned a que from Shasta on only killing the laces. I caught him wearing one of my shoes on his head as a puppy. Walked straight into a wall. I laughed so hard I couldn't breath.
Giving up the spare room for the dogs sounds reasonable lol

|KayDub||I'm in trouble then! lol my aussie already had her own toy barrel that she would take from & put toys back (shes such a great dog) plus a laundry basket in my pantry full of treats. In the 5wks that I've had this new little girl everything has tripled. Once she starts showing her personality more & learning tricks I may have to give up the spare bedroom for dog related stuff. I would happily do it though, below is her newest obsession.|

I have 6 kongs, a bucket of toys just for the dogs *Dax mainly*, a flirt pole, they have a cabinet in the kitchen next to the sink strictly for all their treats and bones and other chewie things, and they have a section in the freezer just for their raw treats.
GSDs get spoiled rotten. You cant help it. You've been warned! lol

I'm really glad I joined everyone has given me such great advice. All the links and suggestions have been an incredible help. As this is my second dog as an adult & my first GSD I really needed the opinions of others to get through some tough situations.
The flirt pole was such a success I'm going to look tomorrow while I'm out for a kong or treat ball. My little girl could really use something a bit more stimulating & chew friendly than the basic toys I have. Hopefully I can share some cute video of her experiencing these new things to give us all some laughs. Thanks again everyone for your time & advice.

Post 8 has some articles from the Leerburgh site, "Who pets my Puppy or Dog" and and "Why Dog Parks are a Bad Idea"
Follow those two ideas and I don't think you'll have any real problems.

Thanks everyone, Im definitely going to check out those kongs I've seen lots of people use them.
Pikeville is much better for me as im so close to Paintsville already. For those of you from KY I currently reside in west liberty I'm sure you'll recognize my general area at least since my town was one decimated entirely by that tornado that ripped through the east 2yrs back.
Has anyone heard of K9 command center, a guy named Tom Gladeau? It's in Ashland which is also doable for me. I'll check out that Daphne's cannine academy as well. I can make that drive too.

I know I drive nearly 2 hours one way for training myself and I do it twice a week. But that is me. Not everyone can or wants to do that.
