  1. How do I (teach my dog to)?
    No matter what I do my GSD just barks. This is a big problem since I have neighbours. She is 7.5 months old and an outdoors dog. She literally will not shut up. How can I teach her not to bark at nothing? She doesn’t constantly bark, she barks every 30 minutes for a couple of minutes. It’s not...

  3. Puppy Behavior
    Hi all, my male GSD is a little over 6mo now. He started getting reactive around 4.5mo where he barks, growls, hackles, and lunges at almost every dog he sees and most people. This happens on walks and when he sees or hears things in the house, he’ll also do that for any squirrels or birds he...
  4. General Information
    My 6 mo old workingline gsd is constantly trying to chase and bark at my cat somewhat aggressively. It has gotten to the point that our cat practically lives in our bedroom (which is so unfair for her). When my dog is in his crate, he constantly barks at my cat when she is just roaming around...

  7. Aggression (the good, the bad & the ugly)
    Have had him since he was a puppy. He doesn’t bite any of us (me and my two kids) but shows complete aggression towards my wife and has bitten her very hard to the point she cried with pain (drawing blood and made her hand completely swollen). When I say aggression, I mean he barks, growls...
  8. Aggression (the good, the bad & the ugly)
    We are getting increasingly worried about our female German Shepherd puppies aggression towards strangers on her walks. We have taken her to puppy training classes where she has been okay. She will sometimes bark at the other dogs there but settles very quickly, even if they are barking at her...

    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.

  10. How do I (teach my dog to)?
    He is a Pure bred GSD. But is passive. He doesn’t bark at strangers nor shows aggression. He keeps playing with people if they come. (I hate guests and I never socialized my dog) yet he is so unguarding. There are a lot of burglars in my area. Please help
  11. Puppy Behavior
    Hi, I have a 5 month old male German Shepherd puppy (obviously!) who is a gem in every way, except one... He never used to have this issue and I can't pinpoint any bad experience that would have elicited it, but he has begun to bark at every dog he sees on walks as we pass by. And I mean really...
  12. Training Our Puppy (basic)
    Hi all, We have a 6 month old german shepherd puppy. Ever since she was around 4 months old she started barking in the evenings and it's getting worse as she gets older. During the day she is fine, but once it starts getting dark at night, she starts guarding the windows and barks at literally...
  13. How do I (teach my dog to)?
    I have an 11 month old female who is WONDERFUL. She is extremely calm, and very loving to her favourite humans. However, I am a single male in my 30s and dating and entertaining guests is a part of my life. She gets a 5 km (3.1 mi) run with me in the morning, every other day she gets to go...
  14. Aggression (the good, the bad & the ugly)
    I am kind of at a loss for how to deal with my GSDs new aggression towards strangers. He has always had a problem with other dogs whilst on leash, (at first it was just cowering when they passed and now its lunging and barking, off leash he is not aggressive but plays excitedly and pretty rough...
  15. Development & Socialization
    I have a 7 month old all black GSD, and he never barked at people or dogs until recently. I am feeling stuck on what I should do to stop this behavior. He isn’t barking aggressively, he is just very excited, but because of his size I am scared that people or other dogs will take it as aggressive...
  16. Puppy Behavior
    Today I took my 9mo male pup Samson for a walk in a very familiar place. I was walking with a well known (to me and my pup) friend. He asked to walk Sam. When I handed over the leash, Sam started barking almost frantically, lunging on the leash. I was standing right next to him. I took the...
  17. General Behavior
    Hi! We got our German shepherd at 8 weeks old, and now he is 5 months old. He loves the car, at least we think, and he hasn’t really had any problems in it. However, he does whine in it sometimes but it seems more like excitement than anxiety. Basically, when we start walking to the car, he...
  18. Training Theory & Methods
    My 18 month neutered male GSD is driving me crazy with his incessant barking at the housekeepers when they come to clean! It is this high-pitched ear-piecing bark that sets all my nerves on edge, as I’m sure it does the housekeepers’! I have to put him in his crate, because otherwise he follows...
  19. Aggression (the good, the bad & the ugly)
    My nearly 2 year old GSD wont stop barking at the crows. As a result, he starts barking as soon as sun rises and until sun goes down. He loathes crows but no other birds. How can i make him stop barking at them because this way everyone gets disturbed when he barks non stop
