Hi everyone,
I am going to be a new owner of a german shepherd puppy. I'm reading up on how to raise, train a new puppy. But, from some of the books that I have read make it seem like your going to be a horrible owner right off the get go... ignorant maybe, but hopefully the trainer will learn from the dog and vis versa...
anyway, as my SN states, I am from montana and my soon to be male pup will be named scout. I came up with the name because I was a Cav Scout in the Army and I like that name in a dog.

I would like to have him become a service dog since I am disabled, but I also wanted my 2 daughters to have their first "puppy experience" so its going to be a touch and go process

Of course like all forums I expect positive/negative feedback, but I can take constructive criticism and hopefully learn from everyone. I've been scouring the internet for years now about GSD's and I love the look and demeanor of the breed along with its place in the family.

Well I believe that does it for my initial introduction :blush:

most likely on the 7th when he is 7 weeks old, unless the breeder feels that he needs to stay longer which is fine with me... as long as he's a happy pup

once he has the OK from the vet im going to take him the the free weekly "social events" at petco.. they make sure that all the dogs coming in have up-to-date vaccines, it will give him some interactions with other dogs, plus strangers... does anyone think this is a bad idea?

I was playing around with scout today in the garage, and surprisingly he understood "come", "sit", and "lay down"... im really surprised that he actually did it!!... now if i could get him to go pee outside!!
