Thanks Debannne - I'm trying to take comfort in knowing that this could've been an isolated incident. Hearing from people whose pets have had just a few (or singular events) makes me feel much...

Thanks for that, GatorBytes. There's definitely things to explore. But a spinal tap isn't one of them - no worries there. Hugs!

OP, I'm sorry that this happened. It's completely understandable to those of us who've had GSDs and know what can happen when a puppy gets riled up.

The thing is, you're selling your puppy short....

The test results all came back normal. My vet said that he could do a spinal tap, and that if it happens again then he'd send me to a canine neurologist for further testing - but at this point it...

Seizure during sleep

My dog had a seizure at 3am this morning, while sleeping. It scared the crap out of me, and I'm wondering if anyone else's GSD here has done this - I guess I'm looking for a sort of 'what to expect'...

Maybe it's just me, but I don't see this as being risky at all. It's telling the dogs, in no uncertain terms, what's expected of them. How much better does it get, lol? Black and white, how simple!...

Removing him is good, but I'd do it a little differently. I'd start teaching him not to harass the cats at all. Waiting until he's already focusing on them, and barking, is too late IMO. I used to...

I have the opposite feelings, lol. I like using a sturdy leather leash, because in a pinch it can double as a strap - I know I wouldn't feel as confident swinging my light nylon leash, and it...

Maybe the micro prong is too lightweight? I have a large, heavy prong collar - and my thick leather leash with the brass clip doesn't move it at all.

When I put the prong on my dog, there is some pressure - otherwise I'd have it way loose and it would be sized to the widest part of his neck. So since it's placed higher than that, then there will...

Wow, I thought the first video was stupid...crap, as long as the dog is small, I guess anything goes, right? Please Dani, don't find another one featuring a GSD with a baby, or my mind will explode!

I don't think it's out of line to call them - I called the police to ask why they were on my property, while I was at work, after my neighbor told me about it. Why not?
