That's good. Well, she is a puppy. Some people like to avoid this part of the development process, others just love it. But it can be trying.
All puppies are kind of a pain. I mean all breeds. But, GSDs and many of the herding/working breeds are worse because of their intelligence. Intelligence and obedience are almost diametrically opposed at some points. A dumb dog will learn what you want and do just that, every time. A smart dog will sometimes tweak it, put their own flare on it, try something different.
I think this is why I prefer mostly positive training techniques. I want a dog, when it is mature, to do what I want it to do. But I don't want to hamper the spirit and sense of humor the dog has. I want a totally trusting relationship both ways. And you can get there with good discipline, you can get there with prongs and e-collars. That is not what I am saying really. I want to enjoy the training. I don't care if perfection isn't reached by 6 months. My dog does not need to get their CD within days of being eligible to be shown. They are puppies for what? 18 months? I want to enjoy that time with the dog.
My dogs and I enjoy training classes. We keep it light and fun, and though I wouldn't care if the whole class was miles ahead of me, somehow that is generally not the case at all.
