Re: [daniel.woo] german shepherd dog (GSD)
"Again, KENDZ has a made a good point about all dogs will bark when strangers come to the door and in terms of controlling, it all depends on the owner. A comformaty dog will be much easier to control whereby a working dog will be a liitle difficult. I think realitydreamer will agree with me on this point."
PSY pointed out smth very important which I have missed.Its the handler's ability to control the dog.(Kendz too) Working dogs are generally harder than show dogs so that means some can be a little more difficult to control but with a firm and fair hand, it shouldn't be too much unless you get a working line dog known for extreme hardness. As a newbie,you'e be asking for it. Kendz is right,hardness & high drives are not for everyone.
