Hello and welcome to the board! A tired puppy is a well behaved puppy! At 8 weeks, training Indie should be done is short spats, a minute or two at a time. Take time to work that into playtime. But during play, if Indie gets to worked up, give her a chance to calm down. She'll learn what is acceptable and what is not. I would also recommend hand feeding her too. That is the best way to curb food aggression that may pop up later. I spent the first few weeks with Bear hand feeding him and making a game out of that too. Toss a few bits of kibble on the floor for her to chase after. You have found a great place to learn how to raise a GSD. There's so much info to be found here. Check out the puppy section and read all you can and ask as much as you need to. Enjoy the board!
