Arrow Young Pup to Start training!

I am 12 hours away from adopting the most precious 5 month old dutch/german shepherd mix ever known to mankind. With that said, i want to make sure i am able to maintain his pure awesomeness and not allow him to be lost in the crazy shepherd haze.

I am absolutely obsessed and in love with my pets [though i am only left with one cat right now], i live a very active lifestyle and believe i am prepared for this process. I will be spending much time exercising him and nurturing his shepherd roots to make sure he doesn't annihilate my household; and to make him a well trained pup.

I've been spending a lot of time researching the breed and planning accordingly. Is there any other advice to be given? I want this to be a well disciplined dog, who knows I'm the boss. Is there anything else i need to know and be prepared for, with this specific breed??

Thanks in advance!!!!!

Best place to start is to click this ----> Welcome to the GSD/FAQ's for the first time owner - German Shepherd Dog Forums then wander around the Puppy Sections.

Good luck with your new puppy and sounds like you are starting of with the proper socialization/exercise/training mindset!

Congratulations! Can't wait to see pictures. I like the book 'The Other End of the Leash' by Patricia McConnell.
