An 8month old female is a pup. Depending on the blood line she will be a pup for some time.give her time to mature

but that is a good thing . There is no need to bark at everything that moves . If that were the case it would loose its usefulness, like the boy that cried wolf , who got the response a couple of times and then that wore thin till he cried wolf and everyone was so sick and tired of being fooled when the real emergency happened nobody paid attention.
There is no threat , seems like she is discriminating and probably has good nerves -- (does she?) and that is good.

now your Jack Russell there is something seriously wrong JUST KIDDING.

you got her to be a guard dog. First she is still a puppy and hasnt even come close to physical or mental maturity. Second, how can you expect her to alert if she's kept outside instead of inside where she can bond with the family and have a reason to guard? A dog who is allowed to bond with the family is more likely to alert when necessary. Also proper socialization is a big thing....

she is still a very young dog. she does not live inside with you, is not developing a bond with you, does not and may not ever, living in your yard, feel the need to guard you or your property. so many people just do not understand that shepherds are not the kind of dog that does well or reaches full potential living "in the yard".

Folks,with all due respect, a dog does NOT have to be kept inside to "bond" in order to show defensive behavior for the property. Most of my dogs are kenneled and trust me,walk onto the property and see what happens. A well bred German shepherd does this by genetics when the dog is mature. This is a pup
