I guess i would be coincided an outdoors man. I don't want my do to be fearful of loud sounds (i.e. gunfire). Any training suggestions and/or cautions? I've though about just setting off firecrackers around him. Should he have ear protection? I'll probably seldom/never have him around the gun range, but as a kid I had a retrieve who hid in the basement and urinated on himself whenever my dad would take me shooting, or the neighbor set off fireworks. I don't want Reagan doing the same thing.

What's the reason you don't want him gun shy? Unless you plan to hunt with your shepherd, I don't see the point. Some more experienced members will give you some more feedback.
