Lazy

Does anyone else have a very lazy GSD? She is 9 months old now and will play in short intervals but that's about it. My vet said she is very healthy just lazy!!! She would rather sit at your feet than play with you most of the time. She does love ball time and dog park but that's about it and she is in Obeidence Classes and is lazy there too.

I can't imagine what that must be like. At 8.5 months Tazor does nothing but want to go out and play. It gets annoying at times. He doesn't take naps, even when I tell him to go lay down...5 mins later he is up again getting into something, or asking to go out. Its 100 degrees right now and I will go out back to the creek and let him swim, but I get too hot so Icut it short. I swear he would run around until heat stroke ensues...wheres the street smarts? Lol.

Tazor is distracted all day by cats, small dogs while in the house. I cant go anywhere without him following. Perhaps your dog is bored. If in fact she is healthy..it sounds kind of awesome, maybe she is just calm and content.

Rio is a pretty lazy Shepherd She enjoys hanging out in her chair and laying by my feet more so then actually playing games.

I walk her for about an hour in the morning off leash and 30 min in the evening and that keeps her pretty content. She will make more of an effort to play if there is another dog around but she is always the first to crash haha.

I know most people would consider her to be a bit boring but it suits me down to the ground since we have lots of other pets and she rarely bothers them. Plus it leaves us with loads of cuddle time

LOL well it is a bit of a problem cause I am trying to train her a little and she's too lazy to want to work.

@ tazor I don't think she's bored she has 5 other dogs to play with, lots of toys she's just happy laying at my feet 24/7 or in my lap. I guess it's partly my fault because I don't make her play long.

lazy? Or unmotivated?

"I don't make her play long" at almost 5 years old, I don't have to "make" Jax play, I have to make her stop. She's on 24/7 unless she's hurt. Have you ever had her hips/elbows checked? What are her drives like? Does she want to chase a ball and bring it back? Does she come to attention at the sight of a squirrel?\

What methods are you using to train her? Positive? Compulsion? Mixed?

She has very positve methods of training. I use Welcome for all my training. She loves to play ball but only for about 10 min and she's done and she will always bring it right back. Yes we have had her hips x-rayed and she is perfect. She's not big on squirrels but loves to chase ducks.
