I'd suggest getting a dog training book and they largely all say the same thing. If you trian your dogs to do various commands, then they will look to you for protection. Dogs in general will bit other dogs and poeple, when they think you the owner, aren't up to the challenge of pack protection.
he is definitely worse with my gf then with me … he as gone a long way in the last 2 years but yes … he is just not playful.

Some dogs just aren't into playing and I'm not sure you can change that. Are you afraid he will bit the GF?
yeah that’s what i am thinking first time i deal with that kind of dog … ho no no i am not afraid of that, he would never bite her or me but maybe a kid that bugs him too much tho or like i said other high energy dog but he is not violent or agressive per say, he demand his space tho he his doing it without bitting if he can but he dose the gesture like if he would after one warning ( showing his K9’s ) and after one gesture he would nip i am sure … like when we cut his nails we have to muzzle him because he would nip without hurting us but yes he would, just like he will eventually nip Laika i am sure when she try to steal his food or play with his tails just hopefully she grow a bit before it happens … I don’t thinks i should be worried about it, we are keeping a close eye on him in the mean time … 24h so far of them being together he warn her a few time be he didn’t nip her yet.

This is what is called an unsocialized dog. You need to get help, or buy a book.

Yes, but
it takes so long for the multiple full size pics to load..... well I just move on.....
Do everyone that has slow internet a break.... load the pics in "thumbnail" size. They load much quicker and if someone is interested, they just touch on the picture and it goes full size!

Our Shepherd has a fan club in the neighborhood. 4 sets of neighbors kids and grandkids, plus a couple adults, and 1 little old lady who has lingering effects from a stroke.

They all have to greet her and give her lots of petting.

The lady with the stroke starts calling (hi big lady) to her when she sees us out for a walk. So we'll stop in so gypsy can get her hug and scratches.

That lady just lights up with a great big smile.

Shepherds are some of the best dogs I've seen. We have a neighbor 2 house down that was hit by a car walking in the morning and hurt very badly. Over the last 15 years he has had 2 Shepherds that he trained as helpers ( lack of a better word ) they wear a harness and help the Gentleman walk and even get out of his chair by giving him a pull . They have kept him mobile and aided in his recovery . I will try to get a picture of him walking .

It’s amazing how our dog greets everyone different. Picture of when my daughter came home from Med school.
What a sweet dog.

A shepherd can be the best or the worst dog out there. Training, socializing, and giving them a job are a must. If not, they can be really destructive and in some cases extremely dangerous.

There are three German shepherds in our neighborhood. Two males and our female.

One of the males has been trained and handled similar to ours and have a therapy/ service dog disposition. Both are sweet hearts and loved by the neighbors kids when they are out for walks.

The third has been trained for personal protection. So people keep there distance from him.

Ours, even though she's got the sweet disposition, she is still protective when it counts and is appropriate. I had to point out to our son in law that it probably isn't a good idea to stalk his 15mo son in front of her while they were playing at the house. That's her boy

She wouldn't bite him, but she would have placed herself in front of the boy with the most evil sounding growl directed at the dad

She's only done that a couple times over the years. But both times, it was warranted, and the growl made me clench even though I was the one being protected

Here is a certain puppy who's afraid of water and won't cross the creek. (most puppies do this)

Now way I'm going in, I'll drown for sure!!!! Panting whining, panting whining.

OK, then I'll go....
P1050937.jpg



See how easy that is? I made it right back.
P1050934.jpg


Hey! I think someone pushed me.
P1050941.jpg


Since I didn't drown, I'll come back.

Now lets try this together. 😅

just a update, my older dog is warming up to Laika pretty good now i think they will be able to play together eventually, I had to made a few correction with lots of positive reinforcements to him and playing fetch outside with multiples object to keep him focused while having her around and playing with both helped the process. He did put her at her place a few times earlier on he is pretty good at giving her warning and she learned his boundaries pretty quickly. Laika is timid but she has character a pretty good combo.

Invited the dogs to come up on the tractor and one actually took me up on the offer; I wasn't expecting to actually have to drive around with one of my ridiculous dogs, but she was some happy.

I beat that drum for years, but finally gave up. That's why I hadn't been to this thread in several months. When it's a photo thread, and people post 2 or three huge pictures I could open the page, cook supper, do the dishes, and there still would be pictures loading.

OK, maybe I exaggerate a LITTLE... :D Yet it took 15 minutes just to post my picture above.

Why don't you reduce there size? I edit all the photos I post down to the 100kb to 200 range in size. I also crop and adjust colors.

Thank You! I, for one appreciate it. There are many threads which I would like to read but can't because of the huge pictures. I could get a faster ISP but have been here for 20 years and don't really care to uproot and move just to peruse TBN.

It will be another couple of minutes before I can post this as the page is still loading pics which I've already seen... last month.

I kinda assumed the images were "ressed" down when we uploaded. Other than loading them into my laptop instead of on my iOS items and lowered the resolution in photoshop, I'm unsure how to lower it.
btw Jstpssng I'm heading up to your county today for a few days. We miss seeing all the forests!

Molly is back in the woods and loving it compared to the flat sidewalks of FL.

View attachment 746291
I give 11yo Molly a 50/50 chance of returning to Florida next winter. She not only was diagnosed with diabetes in January, she will not eat her two meals at 7am &7pm on her own. My wife literally has to feed her wet food out of her hand and many days she turns her nose up at yesterdays food and wifey has to change varieties almost every day. Boiled chicken breast is no problem but we're not feeding her 4 cups of chicken every day. She has to eat at those times due to having to eat in order to get the necessary insulin twice daily. My wife is a saint cuz I'd put the food down and wouldn't have the patience to hand feed her. I do wonder who's trained who but we don't want to lose her so it's whats being done.

Time will tell.
