I got Gunny quite young. Just under 7weeks. Followed breeders advice and hand fed him. This worked for bonding and teaching. After about a week I started luring sit,down,"big" (my stand) and to follow my hands wherever. All marker based.
dogbyte Cathy, Rossi ( the Dutch shepherd) and Gunny (the Czech/DDR GSD) with Zoey, Chance,Xara,Gracie, and Jaden snuggled deep within my heart
