hi guys,

I finally have decided to bring home GSD next week. i already have chosen puppy from litter. yes, i am first time owner, and i always loved GSD. One thing i am really concerned about is HUMPING behaviour. We live in joint family which include my parents, brother, and sister in law. i dont want my dog to start humping anything in front of my family or friends. What can i do from begining to prevent this for my dog?

If he does it, correct him. Say "no" and pull him off whatever it it he's humping. And get him into a puppy class as soon as you can; every first time owner should take a puppy class.

Hey didn't you buy a puppy in April and adopt a dog from a foster home in June? What happened to them?

Here are just a few threads by him, so it looks like yes.

Maybe you should not get a GSD if you have already re-homed two..... GSD require a lot of work--- really all dogs do. BUT there are some breeds that require less. I don't think a GSD is right for you..

Instead of bringing a new pup home, specially around the holidays and Xmas, maybe you can work at a shelter or vets office and gain more experience. Even at a dog training club.

That way you'll be in a better situation when you do get a new puppy/dog and truly be able to give it a forever home. Puppies are a HUGE amount of work and the issue of them humping us (or not) isn't even a blip on my radar of dog issues....
