Bailey is now 6 months & 3 weeks old. During her puppy kindergarden classes, the trainer told us to search on fear periods for our breed of dog (there were 4 pups in the class - all different breeds.) What DH & I found were generalizations - btwn 3-6 months, then from 12-18 months. On our first day of basic obedience classes, we talked about fear periods again and she said to try again, to find more specific information. (this was after a discussion on whether to spay right away or wait until after Bailey's first heat cycle, the trainer's thoughts being not to put Bailey thru a vet visit that might make her fearful of going to the vet..)
I was wondering if anyone would be able advise more information on fear periods for GSDs?
Bailey, as of very recently, has starting barking at neighbors she notices when we are out. Not that this is a fear thing, just a new behaviour for her.
Thanks for any information!!
