Default Introducing myself and Saba - The Polish German Shepherd

Hello everyone. I've been a member on Overclock.net and Carforum.net for years. The name is the same on all of them. Looks like a great community you have here! Here is my brother's dog. Her name is Saba and she's a pure bread German Shepherd.

Just a few weeks old:




1 or 2 months. I forget.



3.5 months, 1 ear up!



5 months:



She's about 7 months now, coming up on 55 pounds. She's a big girl!

We have been training for a few months. She's catching on very very slowly, but it's been tough. She's pretty disobedient by nature.

She's mostly potty trained. She'll still go in the house sometimes but mostly she'll stand by the door or do something that will get our attention to take her out.

She barks at everything and anything that moves. We have her on a pinch collar and we're slowly teaching her the basics. It's going to be a long process though...

Oh, and she doesn't listen to a thing you say to her when she's excited or around new people. She won't even respond to her own name.

Hi Retrospekt and

Glad you joined! Those pictures are fabulous!

You're in the right place if you want some advice and support to get Saba trained.

You could consider the NILIF training It's basical where your dog must sit before it's allowed to say for Eg: Eat Yes Eat I thought no way ho zay
When I was recommended it by a member on here but I started to use it and it really does work and keeps your dog focused on you and the task in hand I then started to use it out side as well when Nipper was meeting other dogs and people it's a great training regime. It's not cruel in any way. Has Saba started to socialise with other dogs/people yet. At 7 months old socialisation should be going well. Good luck
