Got my first GSD so many years ago that I can't remember what surprised me then. But every dog is different and the things I didn't know that I do now are (most have been mentioned)
1- sensitivity. She hates getting in trouble, doesn't stop her from getting into it- but she still hates getting yelled at
2- "working line" vs "regular line/BYB"- which also equals the intensity!!
4- that "houdini" gene- I have to put clips on the crate to keep her in it now and have had to since about 4 months old
5-the "water" obsession- my poor hose, or should I say hoses...she LOVES to attack them
6- the "separation anxiety" factor- this one seems to have it more than my previous and I spent lots more time with my first one ( i was in high school)
