I am a new GSD owner. I got my puppy (12 weeks old) a week ago from a friend who owns a farm. In exactly one week she walks on a leash, though mostly to follow my older lab (9 years old). She pulls to keep up, and I know the techniques to correct. My question is it too soon to correct? Should I just let her get used to walking or should I work on form?
Simple correction by stopping/changing direction. I don't want a show dog, or Competition dog. Freya is family. I enjoy training and interacting with her. I have trained labs, but they are easy. I don't want an uncontrollable GSD.
