I am trying to get professional training with my 7 month GSD! Anyone having any tips for me? I got her when she was about 6 weeks and now she is about 7 months. Already knows basic commands such as SIT, DOWN, COME. But of course she could listen way better with more training, but especially when people around it is a bit harder to grab her attention.

Please I would like any recommendations!

What do you want a recommendation for? A trainer in your area?

She sounds like a normal 7 month old. Up the training, make it consistent, crystal clear and fun fun fun.
Check into Michael Ellis and Ivan Balabanov videos on youtube. These guys use the tug and tug games as a reward and a way to enhance the relationship with the dog. You want her coming back to you because you are her partner in all good things. That will help shape her attention to you.

wow that is awesome. Yea I just want her to know the basics real well and where there are a lot of people, such as the mall.

The tug game? Hmm I will look that up sounds interesting.

She just had her first day of heat today, and do you think it is wise to get her trained up then get her spaded?


thank you
