Firstly, I realise this thread is going to arise a lot of negative feedback. However, i would like honest feedback,stories and tips. Thank You
Ok, So i've adopted, bred and been brought up with dogs all my life. I recently purchased a German Shepherd puppy, she's 10 weeks old and has been in the house for 1 month so far. She's okay with me, only when she wants to bite and play. I try to bring her around when people are in the house, yet she runs and gets very scared when people try to pat her or cuddle her she's extremely uncomfortable.
She doesn't acknowledge me at all, nor does she respond to her treats in a good manner. I treat her when she does something good, yet she does the opposite 5 minutes later. I've spent the last 7 days trying to teach her to sit. She runs and tries to play as i want to reward her.
I realise she's only 10 weeks but i've never had puppies like this in the past. They've always warmed up and been very comfortable around the household and gradually listened. I want to enrol my dog into training but i want to know if anyone has experienced this before and specifically with this GSD breed.
