He is awesome already at the "watch me" command :)



And his sit/stays are coming along nicely . He stares aloof at distractions , unless they are really good ( like another pup) , then he just needs a verbal reminder ( see his froggy sit? getting him xrayed Thursday ..hope he is ok!)

Great pics...but curious.
Is a froggy sit not ok?
We r used to a Doberman sphinx sit.
Still getting used to a GSD.

In general frog sitting can be a sign of HD , so I was concerned.But the vet yesterday said she would not be concerned until he was a bit older because puppies flop like that and it might mean nothing at this age :)

Thanks for the compliments all !

.
Most of our puppies have that 'sloppy' sit going on. Doesn't mean any issues.

:wub:

Very handsome!

Don't worry about the frog sit just yet. Puppies are sloppy. Every pup I've had has done that at some point..... and the frog legs when they lay down too. Most eventually grow out of it and give you the nice proper sit and down. Storm does the frog sit still a little.... her hips have been xrayed and are good so far. :)

Rusty sat like that when he was a pup. I called it his sloppy sit. He no longer does it and is fine:)
This was actually right after his first training class and he was pretty wiped out. lol
