I found this helpful for some tips. Some exercises are more advanced than for a little puppy, but you can get started on the first 3 exercises or so Schutzhund-Training.com - Obedience

Perhaps some people here can link some good training videos.

You can do it on your own if you can't find a trainer, you'll just have to do a bit more research. Stick to it, it will pay off!

You both (the dog, you and your family need to be one entity), just as with God, sorry to say. I appreciate your honesty and your Religion, what ever that may be, you have my respect. Now, with that said; the time invested = the dog you will have 6 months to 1 year from now, you've made a huge commitment having a German Shepherd, own you and your family, put the effort in to research, ask specific questions here and the rewards will be Heaven on Earth...

So what if it's cultural. Some people keep their dogs outside, even here, In America.

Scar,

That piqued my curiosity as well...

Regarding the Muslim faith and the mentality towards dogs in their house....this is what I found.

Keeping dogs as pets: Why Muslims must not

To each their own I guess....just glad I'm not that "each".....for this reason alone.

Thrall,
Don't listen to the "hollier than thou" people who think all dogs should be kept inside a house because they keep their dog inside. I have seen and owned many great dogs who lived primarily outside. A dog simply needs food, shelter, companionship.
Good luck and have fun!

Unfortunately, most Americans think that it is cruel to keep a dog outside. Not sure why.

I don't think it's wrong or judgmental to be curious about another's culture. The guys were just asking for their own knowledge. It's been discussed on here before in threads from Amina. Dogs are considered unclean per their religion. Asking questions like this can only be beneficial to all in understanding a foreign culture.

OP- you need to get a kennel up to contain the puppy until he is old enough to be trusted alone. It will be MONTHS! He is out there alone and entertaining himself. Perfectly normal for a puppy.

Up your training. There is a lot of youtube videos you can watch. Look up clicker training videos. Sit, Heel, Place, Leave It, Down. All sorts of things you can learn from youtube. There are also books you can buy.
101 Dog Tricks is a decent book

You can start socializing him as soon as he has his vaccinations. Socializing just means you are taking him out to view the world. It could be in a basket! lol Expose him to new things now. Surfaces, animals, noises, people.

I'm from Russia. Dogs were primarily kept outside when I was there, not sure now.

I think I know why. Dogs do like to be near their owners, also, humid summers.
Also, people stealing dogs.

But everyone is different. I'm not judging anyone who chooses to keep theirs outside. It's all about the attention they get, really. I think the assumption is that if they're outside then they're neglected. A dog can be neglected inside just as easy.

I have neighbors with 2 big dogs. I barely see them outside. When I do it's 2 mins to go around the corner and back.

It's how you ask a question. Nothing wrong with being interested in cultures.

Maybe I misread the question. It's hard to pick up on tones. I apologize if I did.
