Is it true..
 
That a pup GSD only takes to one trainer. Would like for our Hessa to listen to both me and my girlfriend, but recently heard its best if only one of us trains her. Thoughts?

Absolutely both of you should train the puppy. It should be a team effort.

Both should train AND both should agree before hand on using the same commands. Consistency.

Right on thanks guys. Separate sessions though right?

No need to. You can train together if you'd like. Just be fair and consistent.

Yes, pack structure.

My ex and I both trained Frag together, numerous times throughout the day. He is 4 now and listens to us both pretty equally, excited to see us both.

I have found dogs are more likely to push boundaries with the owner that takes a backseat and doesn't do as much/any training. That's when you get "dominant" dog issues and you see a big difference between how a dog interacts with two issues in the same house. They just have no reason to respect the one who does nothing with them so they will be more likely to disregard commands, jump, mouth, etc. when that person is in control of them.

For clarification, you are saying that if 2 people train a dog together, the dog will not tightly bond to anyone?
