i think people could help with internet dog training problem solving if they at least had a video of the behaviour (unless i missed one), one video is worth a thousand posts imo and will be less frustrating for you trying to explain things in words that we all have to guess exactly what it looks like.

i'm no expert but i just never seem to experience the problems so many keep having.

But shock collar is my last resort, I would recommend it for you if you are pissed and had enough. Good luck.

did i actually read this???

I will take a video but its hard when she is biting the crap out of me.

some one on yahoo answers did help me a lot. we talked for a while about my training and what changed. I used to use a harness but for training I was required to have a choke collar. They advised me to go back to the harness. They said there's so many GSD they see with leash aggression BC of prongs and choke collars.

bubbles gets bored while we walk BC I can't walk fast. so she picks stuff up. I'm not able to walk fast or run.

I did get a shock collar. just in case. and I did get a trainer that will come visit me and bubbles. I'm so happy.

Collars don't cause leash aggression.

"shock" collars can get you into a lot more trouble than prongs unless you know what you are doing. In the right hands, they are a good tool.

Your dog really sounds pretty normal and needs to learn to respect YOU not a peice of equipment.

Have you considered using a targeting stick? It sounds as if your mobility is compromised and introducing a targeting stick and the various games you can play with it would help- it can also help keep a dog focused and out of trouble on walks.

IMO you shouldn't resort to the "heavy equipment" until you have been working with a reputable trainer (and following through with their program consistently at home) for a while, and then not until they suggest it and train you in the proper way to use whatever tool they have suggested.

The cause is poor breeding and/or poor training, not the collar.

"They" on yahoo answers has bubbles listening! Too bad it isn't the best place to get information.
I sure hope the trainer you've contacted will help you, bubbles...and please don't put on the e-collar until you've been taught how to use it(it isn't something that happens in one or two sessions either)

"They" sound like real experts!

Harness sounds like a "real solution". (NOT!)

Did the experts say how many GSD's were "so many"?

Put the e collar on yourself first - you should at least know what your PUPPY will feel!

I can't believe people would put a shock collar on a pup - there's just NO need for it
