PSD + doggy lover,
Yes, I'm looking for GSD and rotts. But for some reason, I think I will get a GSD/3-4 months puppy only at around march 04. Now is the time for me to gether more info. about GSD (also rotts at the same time).
Another question, should I get a male (dog) or female (bitch) ? Thinking to go for bitch, I heard that bitches are in season -- every 6 months, right ? And during this time frame, will it be very messy ? What are the steps I need to take note during this time frame ? Any advise or experience ? I think I should restrict her from other dogs for 3 weeks, right ?
Last, I'm trying to search for a training book/guide for beginner, more toward step by step training working dog(like GSD). Example, like after 3 months, what are the common and general training for a working dog. And after how many months, I can start with some dog biscuit or meat ?, etc.... Any suggestion ?
Basically, I don't expect my doggy to be the 'expert' or 'champ', I just need to have a doggy which can watch my house, and listern to my command. Off course s/he must be a healthy dog.
