Default Lived the dream this weekend...surrounded by GSDs

I got to do something I have always dreamed of doing this weekend. Got to hang with a bunch of GSDs...all different ages. And got to do a "pack" walk with my Stella. IT WAS AWESOME.

Spent some time Sat and Sun with a trainer on the Cape. He has sooooo many GSDs and I had a blast watching them and having Stella play with them. Remember, Stella is my dog reactive girl. No reaction at all here. And even when the cat came out....no reacting, just curiosity.

Hope I can get back there again someday. I think that being with a group of dogs that are all well balanced helps Stella to relax.

Kudos to all trainers and breeders. The public gets to see the fun part and cute part but I got to see just how much work it is and how time consuming.

Yeah lots of dogs are dog reactive till they see a ton of dogs together at the same time. Then not so much...that or there is a blood bath. Usually not though as the instinct for self preservation is usually a strong one.
