Oh there is nothing cuter than a GS puppy. Those ears and feet
Um, again, bigger breed dogs are actually usually easier, especially indoors. They move less!
This reminds me of a friend who adopted one of my foster dogs (well, she adopted Clare and then became a friend). She always said she loved my Rotties but she wouldn't want to dog sit because they were just too big. Then an emergency came up and they (very kindly) decided to take care of Brogan for the duration. Pretty soon she was saying how great Brogan was to have around the house and how easy he was in comparison to their dog. "What happened to the 'he's too big' part?" I asked. "Oh, I'm pretty sure he shrunk... and now he fits". Heh, heh...
Little dogs get under the feet so much easier!
This is interesting, as GRs are a breed often seen in the obedience ring.
They are super intelligent, so when trained do really well But their super intelligence, and non-foodyness makes them harder to train.
Can confirm this !
I put a selection of my favourite photos on a flashdrive with a little story about our pup, with links to my blog and Facebook page so they can read more if they want to.
Oooh I look forward to you talking Mr Boogs around to the GS puppy....wonderful.
Having a cosy snooze - I've been a busy girl, busy growing to 30 Kg!
I'm in downtown Seattle right now for work - so many dogs on leashes, I presume taken to work - what a dog culture here!! Actually one wasn't on a leash: a GSD pup of four months. Unbelievably attached - the guy called it his virtual leash. Walking on the pavement, sniffing but attuned to the guy's whistle or voice to come along. Sat patiently at the traffic light waiting to cross the road. The guy said it's a GSD thing, so easy to train cos they're so attached to their people. I don't think you'd get this much ease with a Lab puppy??
