Guess what a neighbor a few houses down, said about Zelda
She said and i quote, "Oh you have the most well behaved German Shepherd I've ever seen what a beautiful dog." (Note: In case you don't know Zelda is by far the most well behaved GSD.. lol! Lets see FA, SA, prey drive to cats, bossy girl, looks like she is about to kill other dogs, shall the list continue?) :) I was thinking either she hasn't met too many GSD's or she has a low expectation of a well behaved dog..

I said.. "Why thank you! But she really does have quite a few behavioral problems, i just try my best to manage and train the best i can." (And i mentioned some of them)

She said, "Well you must put a lot of work into her than!" Yes i do.. but i can ALWAYS do more. And i'm getting into another training style, its interesting how my training style has developed since i've gotten her.

Anyways, it was very nice to hear that Zelda doesn't look like a menacing maniac out in public, i try my best and she does too i'm sure. :)

Or maybe she doesn't want you to cut Zelda loose on her....always best to stay in the good graces of those that terrify you....:D

When Otto was young, we used to do so much on street training. He was a maniac at home, still sorta is but he's almost 6 and he's calmed down so much since we've had a puppy for him to help raise. It was always a great feeling to have someone complement 'what a well trained dog!' because he was executing a correct sit when I stopped walking...

Congratulations! I know how hard you've worked with Zelda, so it's nice to hear that people IRL notice the results. :)

Congrats! That is always so nice to hear.

Thanks everyone! :)

The only time i think she is the most well behaved GSD is when she is.. sleeping. :) (Yes she has an orthopedic dog bed, but clearly the bricks make a better pillow!) LOL

LOL those bricks.
