Just got my white GSD

what is some good information on training this dog i have read to keep the dog around other people so that it wont become aggressive. I know 2 people that had GSD and they said that they would always jump over the fence and get out is that just bad training. Thanks

Re: Just got my white GSD

welcome to the board! there are many wonderful, knowledgeable people here who will have great advice for socializing and training your dog. tell us more about your new white gsd...boy or girl? name? age?

i can start out by saying that gsd's should never be tied up or chained, they are very devoted to their owner and want to be wherever you are! and always on a leash when they're not in a fenced-in yard, they can be very curious and like to chase things, and can get into all manner of trouble IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE if they're not supervised.

tell us more about your dog and i'll bet you'll get some fabulous training and socialization advice from those here with great and extensive experience!

again, welcome to the board and many blessings to you and your new white gsd!

ps...we love pictures!!!

Re: Just got my white GSD

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR NEW BABY!!!!
I have three white GSDs. Socialization is important. You want the pup to not be agressive towards people and other dogs. Another important thing is consitency. You have to be consistent with the pup. You can't teach it something if you only inforce it sometimes. For example: If you don't want the dog on the couch you can't tell it NO sometimes and then let it up on the couch at other times. It will get mixed messages this way. If you don't want the pup to nip at you you can't tell it NO NIPPING sometimes and then wrestle with it and let it nip at you at other times. BE CONSITENT. Also, the pup will not be small for very long..... don't let the cute little pup do anything you don't want an 80 lb. dog to do! If you let it do things now, like jumping up on you, it will jump up on you when it is grown.
GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR NEW BABY!!! Please post some pictures over in the picture section. I would love to see him/her! </span>

Re: Just got my white GSD

dogtired425, it wasn't clear to me anywhere in the post that this was a puppy. your advice, however, is great even if the dog is already a young adult or adult dog.
