  1. Health Issues
    Hello all, Posting here because I am at my wits end on how else to go about this. I have 2 shepherds, brother and sister, both just turned 3 years old recently. Sorry for the long post but trying to be detailed. A month or so ago, our male German shepherd started having really bad night time...
  2. Training Theory & Methods
    Hi, so I replied to a post below that identified what I thought to be separation anxiety in my shepherd as actual true herding instinct. I need immediate help, which is why I’m creating a separate post. My GSD is calm at home, but when we are in public and a member of our pack takes ONE step...
  3. Development & Socialization
    Hello! We recently adopted a 5 month old German Shepherd / Husky pup. She came to us as a pretty timid pup and we are pretty sure she spent the last couple months of her life mostly in a crate. She has gotten more confident and learning commands well in the three weeks we have had her. She had...
  4. General Behavior
    Hi, Apologies for the long post.... We’ve had our gorgeous boy Mike GSD since he was 10 weeks old. He joined our family of me, my husband and my now 3 year old Cockapoo Bob. Mike was a very easy puppy, house trained almost immediately, took to puppy clashes very well, did lots of socialising. He...
  5. General Behavior
    So our girl is about 10 months old. Has been fine in the car until she hit about 5 months ??? She will pull and run to the car FRANTICALLY. Which she doesn’t usually do any other time. Has no problem jumping in the car. But as soon as you close the doors to get in the front seat she loses her...
  6. How do I (teach my dog to)?
    Tl;dr- my GS misbehaves badly when left alone, and we need help training him to stay home safely. Hi, I'm looking for tips to help my wife's large one year old adopted GS behave better when left at home. He's broken out of a wire kennel and plastic kennel, just by brute forcing his way, even...
  7. Puppy Behavior
    Hi all, So my GSD Maverick is now 10 weeks old. We've been working on crate training. Sometimes he's sweet... and sometimes he's sour. At night he will go right into his crate, lay down with a little protest and then sleep. He is sleeping anywhere from 5-7 hours without a peep! During the...
  8. General Behavior
    My 8-9 month old puppy, Mack, is very attached to my husband, children, and I, to the point where if we are outside, and he can see one of us but not GET to us, he goes nuts. He doesn’t otherwise have much separation anxiety - he tolerates us leaving after putting him in his crate very well, he...
  9. Health Issues
    Hey all! I'm new to this website. I'm posting my concern here since I'm not sure if its behavior or there's some underlying issue no one can seem to find with my dog. My fiance and I have had our german shepherd for four years. We got him when he was 2 years old and was badly abused by his old...
