2>>> My youngest is a year old and is training in schutzhund 2-4 times per week. She is a WONDERFUL companion! Totally bomb proof in temperament and nerve and super social (a lot of people don't like this in a GSD, but from going from a people-reactive companion to a social butterfly working dog - I LOVE IT). She loves children and other dogs, wiggles her butt for strangers on the street and yet kicks butt out on the field.
