...I've lived in my home for 18 years, it's had 3 GSD's, 1st on arrived at about 2 years old, 2nd spent his life here since 10 weeks old. I live in a home that is at least 2 feet off the ground at its lowest point, has wooden planks as floors and carpeting and insulation. When my 5 and a half month old walks I can hear him coming 2 rooms away. It's kind of cluck, clunk, clunk and there he is. I remember my last few GSDs being more stealthy, anyone have this happen? If so why?
