Hi! I’m a new member, as I just applied with my local GSD rescue group to be matched with a dog, but don’t have one yet. My question: I know GSDs generally need a “job” to keep them busy and occupied. The best job would likely be herding, but the only thing available around my house to herd would be the cat and kids, so that’s no good. I plan do do obedience training and, depending on the dog’s interest, ball play, toys, maybe obstacle courses, hiking, etc, but what about when I’m not directly interacting with the dog— like when we’re not home, or I’m cooking dinner, or helping kids with homework? What kinds of “jobs” do your dogs have?
