Autumn is definitely her favourite.
German Shepherd or GSD serve as an ideal family dog. They are considered as good house dogs because of their calm nature and caring temperament. When we adopted our first German Shepherd, we did so with the understanding that she was going to be an active dog and would need a lot of attention, play, and exercise in order to stay healthy and happy. This was our first time caring for a German Shepherd Dog (GSD), and we initially underestimated just how much activity she would need. When she was a puppy, we started to notice that she would get antsy, anxious, and even destructive. This was intensely frustrating for my mother, who liked to keep a clean and orderly house. My mom started to despise our dog and her destructive behavior. That’s when we took Sultan (our female GSD) to see a trainer. We’d been somewhat successful with our own training methods—she could sit, stay, come, lay down, shake, fetch, and do just about anything else she was asked to do. The trainer asked us if we noticed how calm and attentive Sultan was while learning or performing these commands. We told him that we had. He explained that Sultan was content doing something active that she knew pleased her masters. He told us that she wasn’t destroying the house because she was a bad dog, but that she was destroying the house because she was intensely bored. That’s when we knew we needed to be better owners and make sure that Sultan had plenty of fun activities to keep her entertained.
