I will certainly up the training once again, I do think that is the only way around this, yes training seems to be the go-to answer I don't know why I ask any more... I really like the fact that he is a social butterfly, but it seems conflicting with breed standards, (my original concern) then again I am sure he was not bred under standards (puppy mill) so probably was bred out of him at some point.

Breed standard calls for them to be aloof, but is that in general or around people, dogs, all of the above? I think that you have a young dog that wants to have fun. He knows that the dog park is play time, he just doesn't understand that when you say its done its done. He is probably in a very excitable state at that point. I would think that you could try to go to him instead of calling him to you(you are probably pretty close to destroying the come command). You will probably have to calm him down, that is the switch your looking for, he has to learn how to calm down just as fast as he gets excited.

Beats me, maybe someone else could answer this. He is plenty aloof around people. And all I know is every other GSD that I have met cares little for other dogs would rather fetch with their handler than play with other dogs. but every dog is different, and yeah, is still young I know, and yeah, obviously I still need to work plenty with him. my work is cut out.

Just make training fun for both of you. Training is life long with lots of mistakes along the way. They are a wonderful breed and the more you know about them and what they need the better off the whole relationship will be. You'll get to where you need to be
