Am I doing enough for my GSD?
I am checking in with the more experienced GSD owners, to make sure I am taking the best possible care of my GSD. Vega is fed high quality food, gets a walk and/or a game of fetch nearly every day, and gets lots of love and snuggles, however, we don't have lots of training titles, she is a bit leash/fence reactive, and except for the occasional raid on the litter box, she has good house manners. Vega isn't left alone for long periods of time, but I do have work and school, so there are times where it is just her and the cat.
I guess my question is, does it matter that we don't have a bunch of training titles or are involved in a sport? Should I be doing more for her? She has a few toys, but isn't super toy oriented. Vega seems happy enough, but I worry. Does anyone have any advice about mental stimuli or advice about training? While Vega isn't the first dog in my life, she is "my first" in terms of her not being a family dog. Or maybe someone just some offer some reassurance or pointers about what I am doing, or what makes the best GSD parent? Is there even such a thing?
I have wanted a GSD for ages and ages, and have done loads of research about GSDs, so I knew what I was getting into, but I still want to make sure I am taking the best possible care of my dog.
