you need to see a trainer .
this is dangerous . dangerous.
hit the right vein and .......

the dog is not clear -- needs to be taken down a few pegs.

probably many things in management that need to be changed.

how do you interact with the dog in the house?

How old was she when she had an ecollar and choke collar on? If these tools aren't used correctly it can do more damage to the dog. I'm going with retraining without those tools. If she got zapped when she was younger for doing what puppies do instead of being redirected then I don't blame her.

Good point carmspack, I plan on getting her in agility/scent work, but have to start with beg obedience. She know sit and down and all but has no recall whatsoever. Our 1st trainer who used choke/e collar is who made it clear that this dog is work/police dog and did wonders with corrections. Hubby thinks its cruel and that she will eventually turn. New trainer claims to have many years of experience with GSDs, but I doubt this particular breed of GSD. As soon as we get the fence up this summer, I will be able to really work her. My husband thinks she is attacking because we had the e collar on before and he always got bit, but he refused to use it. I used it and haven't been bit while using it. I used harness today and she almost ate me.

She was 5 months old when trained with these collars and the trainer did well with them.

*previous quote removal*

This is not good advice. There is no reason to send any dog reeling fro m a force of a hit to the head

I personally think that might be to young.

"Good point carmspack, I plan on getting her in agility/scent work, but have to start with beg obedience. She know sit and down and all but has no recall whatsoever"

forget about agility where the dog will be zooming around and needing you to direct her .

seems like the aggression is escalating . Personally I don't think this is the dog for you.
It can't be easy when you and your husband are not on the same page as far as control and discipline . To have him fear that one day she will turn , well I think it has happened already , means that there is handler / owner fear which will impact on decisive leadership.
"I used harness today and she almost ate me. " how do you keep confidence with this.

one day someone will witness one of those aggressive events and with best intentions call for help - then what , the responding police shoot the dog?

this is a very big issue that has to be taken seriously.

someone should change the title . I think it started off as GSD mulls,

now it is pulls , the dog is biting through flesh so I think the word needs to be GSD mauls -- get more people visiting and commenting

Sometimes you read some of these posts and wish you could be there, y'know? I would love to be able to see this dog in action, read him so to speak. Then handle him (or her). This seems, and I say 'seems' since we can't be there to really assess the situation, but it seems like a case where some people shouldn't have GSDs. I hesitate to give any advice, because I suspect that the fault actually lies with the handlers.

I thought it was pulls too. If your dog is biting that hard shes hurting you and mauling you, you need professional help with a dog trainer or behaviorist. Im so sorry you are going through this with your dog.
