Teaching my puppy to be well rounded
I recently purchased a male GSD puppy. Before I got the puppy I didn't do much research about good or bad breeders and I didn't know anything about working lines, show lines, pedigrees, etc. All I was looking for is a family pet. I've had many dogs growing up but never paid for training or anything. I hired a trainer and he is teaching basic commands to my dog. I don't have a lot of money for training so I paid for what I could afford. Like I said, I don't need my dog to do anything special. He is just a family dog. He is about 5 months old now and he is very well behaved for the training he has had. All of the dogs I've had growing up were well behaved and good pets but with the breed he is I was wondering if he will get out of hand without more intense training. He gets distracted a little bit still but we are working on it. We take him to the dog park as much as we can (at least once a week), he plays with my 2 year old, he's crate trained, and he plays outside. If anyone could give me some things to keep my eye out for as he gets older or if he is just like any other dog I've had and will fall into place with my family. All opinions are welcomed.
