Default New GSD Owner! :)

Hey everyone!

I just recently got my son a German Shepherd for his 1st Christmas I have had many dogs before- just know that he is going to take a lot more time! I had a few questions I would like to ask but I am sure they have been covered a hundred times before on the forums!

Can anyone direct me towards some stickies or other useful threads on things like:
-Properly disciplining your GSD
-Things every GSD owner should know
-Tips to successfully training your GSD

Whatever else you guys think I should read! I just want to make sure I give him the proper love, attention, and guidence he needs!

Thanks in advance!!

There is plenty to read Here: The Puppy Place - German Shepherd Dog Forums

-be careful with "discipline". Setting the dog up for success is probably a better plan. Especially early on. There is plenty in that link to help with potty training, crate training etc. Ask questions.
