We just adopted our GSD on April 18th, and this is the first dog we've owned. We take her for 3 or 4 walks a day, and they're so exhausting - - every bird, squirrel, and especially every dog she sees, she starts straining to get away, gagging herself on her collar the entire time! I have even had places on my hands rubbed raw from trying so hard to hold her back! If she's this strong at 6 months, I'm afraid of what it will be like when she's fully grown! We want to start obedience training, but we can't get her used to riding in a car. Everything is on hold until we can take her places. Does anyone have any tips or advice on how we can handle this until she's in obedience training? Thanks!
