Default want to understand and become a better pack leader

here i have listed links to various sites that i have shared, as well as others on this board have shared links with me and other members.

it is mostly a collection of leadership methods that will help new dog owners relate to their dog(s) in a way your dog will understand.

even if you have gone through basic obedience and your dog still doesnt listen to you and/or other members of your family, im sure you will find helpful info here to improve the situation but IMO you will see a great improvement in your dog and your relationship.

you will find alot of info within these sites very similar but in one way or another, they will have info that varies or in addition to.

these methods can help dogs that are stubborn as well as dogs that are timid. understanding them and what you convey to them is a big step in the right direction.

other members you are welcome to post links and info that you feel will be helpful as well... please feel free to link this thread if you feel it will help someone.

a sticky is what you see as a pushpin just before the subject name in the main sections of the board. there arent any in this section but you will find them throughout the board. it keeps the thread from moving down when posts are active with new post. so its always at the top of other threads.

will a mod fillful the request to sticky it, i dont know? but i wouldnt mind if they did if it helps others. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/05_biggrin.gif[/img]

Thanks. We had the perfect peaceful balanced pack with our two older K9 girls, my husband and me. But our new baby GSD has thrown the balance out of whack, so your timing is perfect for us! Bless you!

Nice. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/01_smile.gif[/img]

And just what I need. I'm picking up my first GSD pup from the breeder tommorrow. Now I'm more prepared for her. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/18_thumb.gif[/img]

I just hope we can restrain from spoiling her. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/08_rolleyes.gif[/img]

Thanks. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/05_biggrin.gif[/img]
