  1. General Information
    Hi! I wasn't sure what section to put this in. I currently have an almost 3 year old male chocolate Labrador (neutered) and am looking to get a second dog. I was originally set on getting a German Shepherd because I've wanted one since I was a child and I want that intimidation factor when I...
  2. Feeding Our Puppy
    Hello everyone, I’m new here, I hope this is the correct form to place my question in. Our new German Shepherd puppy (Bear - 10 weeks) has tons of energy as you can imagine, we’d like to get him a lot of exercise and found this really neat idea about a food/treat dispenser machine. We’ve done...
  3. General Information
    We have an 19 month old, half Belgian malinois mix. He gets lots of exercise, but unless he is exhausted (like in the woods all day), there is a period every night, after dinner when he is bored. He gets a little crazy on the leash when we go out, tries to play tug and inside he wants to chew...
  4. Basic Care
    Hi everyone! This is my first post here, so I apologise if it’s in the wrong place. I brought my 2 year 10 month old rescue home a week ago Friday and although we’ve had one bad day, she’s settling in well overall. I don’t know her full backstory, but I do know that she flinches away from the...
  5. Health Issues
    Took our 4yo GSD hiking on Sunday and she's exhibiting some stiffness in her hind legs/hips. She doesn't normally have issues- we walk 2-3 miles a day and she runs around the yard more but it's all relatively flat; sunday we did 4.5 at a slower than usual pace (plus stopped several times for...
  6. Development & Socialization
    Hi! We're new. I adopted my girl, Indie, at 9weeks and she is now at about 6 months. Since I got her from a stray momma dog (who looked maybe about half gsd, half pittie or super mutt mix), we don't totally know what she is, but wisdom panel says 56% GSD and 26% Belgian Malinois most reliably...
  7. Training Theory & Methods
    I have been walking with my 6-month-old puppy German Shepherd 3 miles a day every day since he was 4 months old. We walk half of that in the morning and the other half in the evening. We usually walk on the streets around our somewhat hilly neighborhood. We also play some tug of war and fetching...
  8. General Information
    My 6 month old female German shepherd "chloe" loves to play with a friend's 7 months old German shepherd female. I take her to park to play in grass, there she runs around playing with her friend(mentioned 7 months old ) for 30-40 minutes. She gets tired and sleep for 1 hr or so when gets home...
  9. General Information
    When I got him at 6 months old, I gave him 4-5 shorter exercise sessions per day, since I had read that you don't want to run them for more than 5 minutes per month of age. So I'd hike with him for a half hour first thing in the morning, a short (15 minute) walk mid-morning, a 10 minute play...
  10. Development & Socialization
    I rescued a 6 month old GSD puppy a few months ago. He is currently 11 months old. He's a handful! The last GSD I had, she was a show line from a reputable breeder, a really mellow dog. Smart, athletic and beautiful, but not a working line dog. I'd hike with her for an hour every morning before...
  11. General Behavior
    I've had 2 GSDs. My female, I would give her an hour long hike every morning, a short 20 minute walk in the evenings and a longer 2-3 hour hike a couple of times a week and she was fine. My current dog is a male GSD, he's 10 1/2 months old. He seems to need a lot more exercise. I've been...
