Hello, I am very new to this forum. I just got a 3 year old GSD. He came from a home that he was very protective of. He is a beautiful dog and I want to make this work but he is growling and wanting to bite me. I cannot get him out of his crate yet. I have only had him for a couple hours now and I do not know how to go about this. How do I get him to be ok with me. I am not sure if it was a good ideal to take him when he was such a watchdog for the other family. Does anyone have experience with this and have you had this to work out ok. Thanks.
