it sounds like your dog has fear issues hence the backing away and growling. If this is the same dog you want to breed, please dont. Spay her. training to attack on command takes just that... TRAINING!!! Which should be helped with the skills of a professional trainer. but you also need to realize that some GSDs never develope the protective instinct.

excuse me? where do you get off? ok since you didnt get the question (obviously) she is not fearful. she backs off because we tell her too. and as for children. she loves them. and she is very protective of them. theres not a child she doesnt know. so does she like them raw? check yourself man. i dont care who you are. it was a question and whoever gave me the advise was wrong i can see that but seriously, what goes on in your head? she's just not big into men is her only problem and we have been working on that. but really guy, i dont care who you are but really, you should think before you say stuff like that.

where do you get off coming on this site and getting offended when someone makes what is obviously a joke? Your post states she growls and backs away. THAT IS A SIGN OF A FEAR AGGRESSIVE DOG!!!!! I have a fearful GSD and i have no doubt in my mind if she felt in any way threatened she would turn fear AGGRESSIVE! Your dog is afraid of men. YOU have stated that fact. THAT is not a dog you want to train to attack on command because being that GSDs are SUCH incredibly smart dogs, the ability to give the command could go out the window because she could get it in her head that regardless of whether the command was given or not, she is allowed to attack. The mere fact alone that you want to train this command in a dog showing fear aggression is a potential liability and would have a more negative impact on the dog than yourself. If your dog DOES bite someone, that is on you and the dog suffers for your lack of taking care of her and keeping her from situations that could result in her becoming what would be considered a dangerous dog. She needs POSITIVE socialization and POSITIVE training. Not training that could very well lead to a demand that she be euthanized. She is obviously not a well rounded GSD and she's not confident in herself or her surroundings if she's acting that way towards men. And she's obviously not confident in you or your ability to be the pack leader and she feels she needs to take charge. Please for the sake of your dog, dont be stupid about this. The people on this site are here because we not only love the breed, but we have knowledge to share. Now if you dont like the answers you've gotten, its for a reason. its not what you wanted to hear. You wanted us to give you the ammunition for the gun and we're not going to do that. We're here to HELP promote the good qualities of the breed, of any breed really. Welcome to life. You dont always hear what you want to hear. If you dont like what knowledgable people have to say, feel free to go elsewhere. But keep in mind, ANY responsible person/trainer, will NOT work with you to train a fearful aggressive animal of any kind to attack on command.
