hello new here
i have a couple issues

i have a 3 month old German Shepard puppy and a 5 month old lab puppy both females i'm gonna refer the German shepherd as (GS)
my issue is that my GS puppy is always whining and doesn't stop until i go pet her i know that's a no no and sometimes i can be setting right beside her and she starts to whine for no reason i tried to train her for separation anxiety by leaving until she stops whining then come back in but she whines for like 10 mins at a time and seems not too work iv'e tried that for almost a month she has been like this since we got her at 7 weeks old. any suggestion on how to correct this issue??

2nd issue
when she gets around my lab puppy they are usually good but then all of a sudden my GS puppy will start to try and fight my lab by grabbing the labs skin,barking at her, and pouncing all over her she does this like 5 times during our trips to the dog park they both get plenty of exercise i crate my GS puppy at night bc she isn't fully potty trained yet nut the 2 puppies seems to be inseparable be when me and my wife are walking them and before they start too "fight" my GS puppy flips out if the lab gets too far away or she looses sight of her i have no idea whats going on with my little girl please help

ps
i added 3 pics of them 2 in one of them u can see that when they start too "fight"

Cute puppies! On to your questions...

To teach your puppy not to whine at you for attention you have to be 100% consistent in not responding. Period! If you ignore her "most" of the time it won't work ever. But it helps to set up a schedule and a routine to minimize her whining, and then absolutely never give in and respond. She will whine and cry for a bit, but if you stick to your plan she'll get over it and you'll be done. If you don't, trust me, this can go on and on and will likely get worse, not better!

On your second question let me say first that a 3 month old puppy should never go to a dog park, or anywhere else that other dogs frequent, because they haven't had all their vaccinations yet and are susceptible to parvo and distemper and a whole host of other diseases! Stop putting your puppy at risk please!

On the wrestling, they are young puppies, and young puppies have short attention spans for everything except wrestling with a buddy LOL! For now walk them separately until they learn to behave well that way first. Good luck!

Also read up on this forum on: dog parks (besides the vaccination issue), same sex aggression and raising puppy siblings (which they technically are). Roll up your sleeves; lost of work ahead to get things right.
