Hey I have a GSD she's 15 weeks old. How much should I be walking/running her? I ran her for 30 minutes today in the hills and she wasnt able to keep up. Is she to young to be running in the hills with me?
At what age will she be able to run with me? I want to get her on the level where she's a fun protection dog. Also, she dont bark at all why is that?yes.
Only walk her as far away from home as you are willing to carry her back. Usually a lesiurely stroll around the block is plenty. Let her run around in the back yard all she wants, but let her determine how much.
Around a year oldAt what age will she be able to run with me?
It takes years of dedicated training to train a protection dog. What is a "fun protection dog"?I want to get her on the level where she's a fun protection dog.
Because she's a baby. The bark will come; just give it time.Also, she dont bark at all why is that?
Please be very careful with her. These dogs are prone to hip problems if not taken care of. I do not limit my dog from playing and running around but they should never be jogging along side you until atleast a year.
They will bark when needed. I wish my dog would never bark, but then again my purpose of getting him was never "protection". If you got the pup from a good breeder and the pup has sound temperment and nerves they will bark and protect you when needed, as it is in their nature to do so. Forcing them to bark or wishing they barked more is not necessarily a good thing.
