There's nothing "educated" about wild conjecture. Since you don't know the person you're addressing and have never met her dog, you'd be making an assumption. :)

What area do you live in? I think that a good breeder can absolutely match you up with a working line GSD that would do well as an active family companion. Your kids are old enough that they can...

Yeah, me too! :rofl: It took me by surprise the first time he almost took me out, since I'd only worked on really short recalls. I have a tiny yard and nobody to restrain him either, so I'd have to...

I've never competed in OB so I could be wrong, but I think that when you recall your dog it's to the front position, and then you would cue the heel from there. Maybe someone with experience can...

I'd always heard 4-6 months but I just found an article that said 3 to 7 months, so obviously those are averages. Those aren't the starting ages though, that's the time frame for the whole process,...

Keefer used to have a rocket recall where he'd slam into me if I didn't jump out of the way at the last second. What helped was to time my "sit" command better. Eventually I wanted a recall to...

We've taken our dogs to the beach many times. As Betty mentioned, try not to let her drink the salt water, as it can cause the "squirts". Sometime we hose the dogs down afterwards, but often not -...

How sad. What's unfathomable to me is that dogs like that were left loose and unsupervised in an unfenced yard, even AFTER one of them attacked the woman two years prior. Even if the owner didn't...

For a baby puppy??? No! Obviously, puppies aren't children, but a 3 month old GSD puppy is the developmental equivalent of a 3 year old child. Is this the way you'd teach a toddler? Of course not.

Can we please not turn this into another "positive only" vs corrections thread? That's been done to death already, and has nothing to do with the OP's issue. Let's try to be more productive, shall we?
