As a German Shepherd owner I understand the difficulties that many people have as a GSD Owner.  The breed has a reputation for being aggressive or as I say a ‘Shark on a lead’ however this is far from the truth and with the correct training and socialisation they are a pleasure to own. 
German Shepherds are known to be a one man dog and will tend to build a very strong bond with one person.  They are not an easy dog and definitely not for everybody.  They are very intelligent and active dogs and as well as appropriate exercise need to be kept busy learning, playing and working.
They are not a dog that likes to be left home alone for hours on end, they love company and when you get a Shepherd you will never go to the toilet alone again!!
I can guarantee once you get a Shepherd you will fall in love with them and more than likely get another.  

I offer the following German Shepherd training packages that are tailored to the breed specific traits.I use positive training methods and will never ever judge you as I have more than likely experienced the same problems with my dog or a dog I have trained.

  PUPPY TRAINING PROGRAMME 

Our GSD puppy 1-2-1 training sessions is a personalised 5 week course tailored to you and your German Shepherd.
The sessions take place in your home where your puppy will be relaxed and happy.  Although we can go outdoors as and when we need to.  We will discuss your training needs and put a plan together to set you of on the right paw.

We cover all aspects of basic training including, toilet training, correct socialisation, crate training, mouthing, basic obedience, loose lead walking, recall.  We will also show you some tricks and how to use enrichment to keep your dog mentally stimulated and most important how to strengthen the bond between you and your puppy.

I take all of the breed specific traits into consideration and also discuss health and training issues that every Shepherd owner needs to understand.
