Moving with a younger pup?

Hey there, so im due to get my pup around spring/summer 2018 from Schraderhaus K9. Really excited about it, and about as prepared as i can be at the moment. My biggest concern at the moment is i'm toying with the idea of moving out of Portland sometime in late 2018/early 2019, could a change of territory as early as 8months old be a traumatic experience for a (F)GSD? I've read in some places it can cause separation anxiety, dunno how true that is.

That sounds like nonsense to me.

If your dog is of solid nerve and breeding, moving to a new area is just a new place to have an adventure in. Sounds pretty ridiculous to me.

The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.

I think sometimes worrying about a problem is worse than the actual problem.

Snitches get stitches.

Totally agree with other responses!

My husband and I are big city dwellers and travel nonstop with Hudson and it's been awesome. At 8 months he's our little road warrior and it gives him confidence and in my opinion strengthened our bond from the get go experiencing new things together. He even had some fearful tendencies due to being poorly handled by his breeder and it's gotten him up and out of that much quicker - how we know his nerves are solid, as long as we are there and doing our thing, he is a happy camper. Just be sure to keep things consistent with food, training, level of exercise, and love and he will thrive.

Just wanted to put in my two cents! I'm in college, and we moved into the dorms when Casanova was only four and a half months old, and other than him being a little stressed out about the driving, he acclimated almost immediately. I will say he's always been a pretty laid back guy who likes to explore, but so long as your dog doesn't go to pieces anytime you go on a walk or something, you should be fine. Just a word of advice, make sure to keep your pup leashed when you're first giving them the (slow) tour! If you've never taken him traveling before, such a new, large space can be a little daunting. And it is possible that he might have a slight set back in potty training, though at eight months I think you should be fine; Cas was. Anyway, hope this helps!
