Matilda is roughly 12 weeks old, she's a craigslist dog and I was told she's GSD, not sure of the content but I know she is at least a mix of GSD and godknowswhat.
She's great! Super intelligent - easily the smartest dog I've ever had, absolutely loathes pottying in her crate or indoors, doesn't harass my cats, extremely receptive to correction and 'no', eager to please and not easily influenced by distractions when out in public - but there is one thing I'm not sure if I need to correct or ignore and this only started popping up after a week of having her; I've had her since she was 10 weeks
I never. In my life.. have had a dog who air snaps.. and once she found out air snapping makes a fun noise, she does it so frequently but only at times of excitement; going to the kitchen to get food, praise, etc. She doesn't display any sort of other dominant behavior, she's easily corrected so it doesn't necessarily concern me or raise any red flags right now but I also have never owned this breed and after reading up on silly little things this breed is known to do - she does all of them - I'll just take the lead from more seasoned shepherd owners on this one. I've owned primarily bully breeds up to this point in my life and I'm of the mindset an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and I just want to make sure I'm not jumping the gun here.
