blackshep Another thing, if your dog enjoys using its nose, why don't you look at scent work, either tracking or scent detection?

It's a fun way to use your dogs gifts, and you might find you start to enjoy that quality in your dog

No, I would not. Dogs are not perfect beings, they grow, they change, they revert back to old behaviours if you're not careful.

It's all part of training your dog. (I would not be walking a young dog off leash either, BTW)

I am never angry with my dog. Do I get frustrated? Certainly! But I never feel like I'm about to take it out on my dog. I've had wonderful trainers help me along the way, and I suggest you find yourself one.

The point is, you need to find a way of dealing with your frustration, because if you are angry when you are trying to train, I can almost guarantee you will not have success.

Best of luck with your pup!

She didn't mind being out around people, but they were not allowed to touch. I handled her just fine. In fact, her obedience was solid enough that I was asked to use her to demo the lessons at the local AKC obedience club. I was responsible for her care and feeding.

THIS particular problem isn't a big deal. Try working with my independent, butthead teenager I have currently.
Can independent be a genetic thing ? Is there a gsd line for it or depend on individual dogs.

Rod84 I for one can't walk my dog more then three steps with out him stoping to sniff. I get frustrated my self but I realise one what his breed is & that this a big part of him & second that he is just a puppy! I will start working on this with him next. BTW I think 17 is way too young to take on a challenge of a gsd by them selfs. A lot of responsibility that goes along with this very strong breed.

Don't feel bad. I'm literally twice your age and I was so angry and frustrated in a post about my Rat Terrier biting my GSD once I turned a few heads too. I did go back and clarify that I wrote in anger and frustration but my pets always come first. Hey, we all do it. The important thing is to put it behind you and just take advice from all who offer it constructively.

Holy guacamole, my mother was married when she was seventeen. I was in my second year of college. You're a kid, but you you are old enough to be the adult when it comes to your puppy and its natural behaviors.

To be fair, neither one of those things is even remotely the norm 'round these parts.

As I've mentioned previously, there is definitely a translation issue here. Compound that with the OP being seventeen years old and the potential for misunderstanding increases exponentially - especially on enthusiast boards such as this one.
