  1. Puppy Behavior
    Our 5month old male baby’s testosterone has started to take over and while he is very well behaved at home and in our training sessions around the house he turns into a little piranha the moment he is at the park and on a lead! When he is off lead (in the allowed areas of course) he is very...
  2. Puppy Behavior
    I just adopted a 3.5 month old GSD who was living with a loving family who didn’t realize the responsibility associated with a dog when they rescued him. Leo was 5 weeks old when he was separated from his parents, and lived with the previous family for 2 months. He’s an AMAZING pup - but he...

    Hi everyone, I have been reading the threads here for a couple months and found a lot of useful information. We have a 7 month old female German shepherd.

    Why is he doing this ?! It seems like his nipping is getting worse and he tries to attack sometimes. When he is nipping he’s told no and whatever playing we’re doing we stop. Thinking of getting a muzzle because we have 3 small kids
  8. Puppy Behavior
    I’m a first time dog owner and I’m currently spending days stressing and crying about my 5 month old GSD wondering if I’m doing something wrong. We got him at two months old and he was so quiet, shy and overall had a calm temperament till he got around 4months of age. Very recently he’s...
  9. Aggression (the good, the bad & the ugly)
    I wrote on here about a year ago about my dog growling at me. It started first when he would just growl at us if he was injured. Then he started growling when he was mad like if we left him alone. When we came back he growled. We had to move in march to Indiana which made things worse and now we...

  11. Puppy Behavior
    I've had my 9 week old GSD for about 2 weeks. He is usually very calm, sweet, and loving. A couple of times a day, he goes into this phase of non-stop biting any human around him. At first I could handle the biting, but it is becoming unbearable. He is leaving deep scratches and marks all over...

  13. Aggression (the good, the bad & the ugly)
    Hi there everyone, this is my first post and I’m new to this 😊 I have a 5 year old male long haired GSD. He has never been great around other dogs, but he has always been manageable and if we ever come across another dog on a walk then I would make him sit and watch the other dog walk past...

  15. Health Issues
    Hi so I noticed a bit of blood where my dog was laying and so I went to check his paws but nothing then and then I noticed that after lifting his tail up I saw what looks to be some skin hanging from his scrotum. I've seen him lick around there before but never noticed anything like this never...
  16. Aggression (the good, the bad & the ugly)
    My puppy is 9 weeks, and I got him when he was 7 weeks. So he's still super young. He is also my very first dog that I'm training. When I tell him no, he seems to understand and stop what he's doing that's naughty. But other times he sasses me, as in he'll bark at me. He does that when he's...

    Hello- A couple weeks ago my husband and I were visiting my father and brother and their German Shepherd, Drogon, bit my husband. Drogon is about a year and three months old and has been to training classes in the past, but I think a big issue is the follow through when he comes home. My...
