People don't have to be enraged to post on this thread. I was just blowing off some steam.

Skadi and Grim do a lot of excited jumping. Skadi has learned not to make contact so she will jump in the air and lick your face without touching. Ninja brat!

Haha, Kaiju will stand upright on his back legs and just sort of hang out there until you pet him. It's kind of awkward to have a 60 pound dog stand up like a human and start staring intensely at you.

I wish people did not feel that dogs were in the public domain by default.

I had an ex-girlfriend tell me that GSD's were known to turn on their owners and attack.. she went on to tell me that chief was not well trained (true, he's trained just not as well as I would like), when I called her out on her dog that's a little terrorist she said, "a 9lbs dog that isn't trained isn't big enough to cause problems"..... that dog runs away all the time, and tries to start fights at the dog park and she thinks it's everyone else's dog that's the problem....... and she wondered why I didn't like to go to the dog park with her... and even funnier she wondered why I left her.. haha.

Default Unwanted or needed dog training advice

I have lots of solicited dumb advice but here's one unsolicited

My dog has really bad SA outside. Like if my daughter and I are both out together and one of us walks away or comes back from walking away he will scream really loud.

So I come out of the post office and he screams. Some lady comes up

-why is he crying
-has problems when I walk away
-ohh. Nice dog (looks him over and notices the prong). That's a bad collar. He's screaming because he's in pain
-no, he's not. He always does this when we separate
-yeah, that's a bad collar. He's in pain
-no, he's not, otherwise he'd be screaming non stop from the time I put it on and until I take it off
-he's in pain
-thanks for sharing

And I walked away. My daughter thought I was rude because the lady was older. I'm very respectful towards everyone, especially elders. But if someone doesn't want to hear me and insists on judging - then I feel I can be rude.

It's amazing that people suggest a tv show to learn dog training.

a few years ago I was sitting in the vet's waiting room with Masi..Masi is not a fan of my vet by any means, but she minds her own business and has no issues in the waiting room.

I was alone, this woman came out of a room , paying her bill, turned around and said 'pretty gsd",,I said "thank you"..she asked if she could pet her..I said "thanks but no, she's not a big fan of the vet, and I'd like to keep her stress free as possible".

The woman decided I needed a lecture on 'how to socialize/train german shepherds"..The techs behind the counter were rolling their eyes and shaking their heads..

I finally said, "do you have a degree in dog training?"..she replied "well no but I have had dogs"...BIG FREAKIN DEAL lady..(I didnt say that ...I DID say, "well when you get a degree in dog training and have some titles, like maybe obedience on your dogs, let me know"...by then I was moving into an exam room...

I don't throw out unsolicited advice unless I'm asked, or it's warranted, as in, if some mangy mutt is trying to attack mine

Therein lies the problem. A topic that has gotten me wrangled up in many a long discussion on this site.

I'm thinking of getting a t shirt that states "Get your own dog".

But why not? They have a friendly lab at home, all dogs are friendly right? They can pet any one they want! Just like their dog charging yours is "friendly"
