Hi! I just recently brought home a 5mo female GSD in need of rehoming. She is my first GSD that I've had the lovely opportunity to own. She has mass amounts of energy and is a bit of a tyrant. Constantly chewing on leash when we are training for loose leash walking, biting/nipping, ignoring. I've had her all of 2 weeks and she seemed to have ruled the house she was previously in so breaking that dominance has been a challenge to say the least! I have her on a schedule as I work full time on weekdays and I'm wanting some feedback! I wake up with her at 6am, take her out of crate, walk and feed her then put her in crate for about 7:30am and head to work. (Walking is a battle as it is a lot of stop/go and turn arounds due to leash training) I come back around 11:30/12 for another walk and feed then crate her ag 12:30/1pm until around 4/4:30pm then walk her once more feed her and let her roam the house/playtime. I attempt training but it hasn't gotten very far. She is selective with listening, but improving. I don't let her inside or outside without my ok, have her follow me up/down stairs. On the weekends I do about the same but walk her in AM, crate for about 2-3 hours, walk again, crate about 2 hours and then let her roam/play from about 5pm to 8 or 9 which is her bedtime. Trying to put 5 min training sessions throughout the days, (she knows sit and down but is always a hassle to have her to do without a treat in hand) also working with a trainer once a week. She is still warming up to us so I'm trying to not feel so defeated while there is little progress. Any feedback is greatly appreciated! I just want the best for my Akega and to have a loving strong bond between the two of us.
