  3. Puppy Behavior
    How long should a 4 month old puppy be able to play ball for? She will go for so long and it’s a great way to get her energy out but I don’t want to hurt her joints + growing!
  4. Events & Club Info
    I want to achieve a BH and explore scent work with my female. Does anyone know of any clubs or trainers in Upstate NY that do that? My online search turns up nothing locally. I'm wondering about online classes? Thank you!
  5. General Information
    So my 3.5-month old puppy is provided every toy known to man. She lives an extremely privileged life and obviously still needs a lot of training. One thing I am having a hard time understanding is the need to eat sticks. She is fed plenty, receives daily treats, and as mentioned, provided...
  6. Braggs!!!
    a second brag post? oh goodness, what an accomplishment, but my sweet boy deserves it. I've been slacking this past month, or two, on training, and this week I finally decided I needed to step up! I got into contact with an old friend who has some rescued GSD mixes and planned a meetup to...
  7. Braggs!!!
    Due to the weather, and me being in bit of a mental rut, training and hiking has began to be few and few between, lucky for me Charlie is very laid back, and is easily satisfied playing with the other dogs in their run, and is well behaved MOST of the time, but I still can't help but feel guilty...
  8. Aggression (the good, the bad & the ugly)
    So I started Coco on a prong collar last Friday for his leash reactivity - he's doing fine with it, doesn't seem to care much about it but gives me his attention when I pop the leash. Walking (no sniffing) by my right side and sit are the only two things I've been asking him to do on a prong...
  9. Puppy Behavior
    Hi all! I am new to the website, and a new GSD owner. I am constantly training my new 16 week old puppy Mayko and we are also currently in our 3rd week of group class at a local obedience and sport club. I heavily researched bloodlines and breed information for years, and previously had a German...
  10. General Information
    heyo! as some of you know, back in late September, the 25th to be exact, my GSD Charlie was hit by a train, yes, a train, and got by with only minor injuries, lucky lucky guy. He is completely healed and back to normal now, doing just fine, but recently, on our visits to our cabin, which is...
  11. How do I (teach my dog to)?
    Speak or "Talk Smack” as some people like to call it, has never been a priority on the training list, so it never bothered me when my previous dogs wouldn't do it. Now, since Charlie is excelling in his training and doing very well, I'd like to train him to speak, or bark repetitively on...
  12. General Information
    I just got a IGP dog she is 2 partially trained. My trainer says she needs to be in her crate all day except when I take her out to train? Is that true or is she allowed to run out with my other dogs for a few hours as well. I feel so bad leaving her in there while the others run freely. Also is...
  13. General Information
    I've been thinking about getting some products from Zesty Paws for Charlie, but I wanted to ask if anyone has experience with them or uses them for their pup? :) thanks also feel free to drop some reccomendations for other products that you like/worked for you, just general stuff like...
  14. Aggression (the good, the bad & the ugly)
    Hello, I‘ll try to keep this short and to the point. I have a 1 year old GSD who we’ve been taking to basic obedience classes since he we brought him home at 8 weeks. He was attacked by another dog when he was 3 months old. We’ve had a personal dog trainer to work on some behavior issues...
  15. Guide, Therapy & Service Dogs
    Hello, I am in the process of getting a service dog for psychiatric service work in the next two years and I have chosen a German Shepherd as my breed. This is not my first time owning a dog but my second, and I would like to know from other German Shepherd psychiatric service dog handlers the...
  16. Finding a Good Trainer
    Hello everyone, On August 10th I will be picking up a 3/4 GSD 1/4 Belgian mal pup. She is out of working parents and has great bloodlines and is already showing a lot of confidence, food drive, toy drive, etc. I’ve been trying to find an IPO club beforehand so I can hopefully be prepared and...
  17. Puppy Behavior
    Hi, So I have a 3m old male and a 5m old female. When they are alone they're fine. But when I'm there, it gets a little intense like idk if they get jealous of one another being really close to me or what... what I mean is when my male follows me around, my female gets near him, barks at him...
  18. Braggs!!!
    Hey all. Just a had to make a quick Bragg/ note to self about my sweet girl! Frida is 12 weeks old now and has been to the beach, on boats, in airports, in tons of stores. She's met children, horses, goats, cows, cats and dogs. She has been the easiest puppy I've ever house trained. I'm just so...
  19. Training Our Puppy (basic)
    Hi GSD Lovers! I'm looking to compile a super long list of short mental stimulating games and activities for my puppy. Short sweet and fun. Here's a few I have tried before with my previous pup but I could use a bunch more to do with my current 11 week old rascal.... Find kibble under bowl...
  20. Training Theory & Methods
    Hello I’ve heard this from multiple trainers and I don’t know what’s right, can you please help? They told me that if my dog does something wrong I should tap her on her nose and between her eyes. Is this the correct way? Or is it harmful?
