    Hi Jocelyn Very Happy I cannot believe how the time has flown lol!

    Okay back to Teller, it was so plain for me to see when the light bulb came on ( Byron being that light bulb ). It was all down to trust, trusting myself to trust her ( after all I have had her over a year and know her pretty well ) with all the training that I have given her so far, I mean how could she trust me if the feeling was not mutual. The particular trust that I am talking about is finding myself with her in an unexpected situation where we should both work as a team/ as one or for me to lead as pack leader. I had come to realise that all my concentration was focused on preventing unwanted scenario's because of society and the age of anti large dogs, especially German shepherds and even more so the true working type such as my Teller. So I was more focused on whats not happened rather than living in the now which dogs naturally do, because of this continuous super alert mode and worry that I was carrying, Teller being very intelligent and very much my dog was picking up on this, needless to say she to was becoming hyper alert and on the look out. That is what I mean when I said society and society rules have indoctrinated into us fear, fear of letting our dogs be dogs least we be prosecuted should they do anything canine.
    I consider myself as a knowledgeable, caring and sensible dog owner, I have worked, owned and trained GSDs, I also think I am confident owner well that was until that light bulb came on and I realised that even I was being sutterley indoctrinated by big brother Shocked Shocked Hello ! Wake up call, I realised unlike my years of ownership of large dogs in the past that I was no longer relying on my own intuition, experiences or my bond and trust of my dog/s. Call it what ever you want but I'd say that I had lost my confidence because of the rules, fickle anti dog lovers, so called do gooders and a new generation who expect dogs of today to be like robotic teddy bears or furry dressed up children, they are expected to have only one personality and to know only two words " be GOOD " Twisted Evil
    I remember the days when I used to train three GSD's all at the same time and off lead with hardly any concerns at all ( obviously I had to take in some consideration such as their safety etc ), I except that times have changed and that some laws and rules have to be but it is becoming ridiculous now. We are all probably guilty of avoiding certain situations with our dogs because of what MIGHT happen and this in turn affects our dogs socialization skills, our dogs confidences and because we dog owners do this it gives society every reason to continue with their ridiculous rules.
    I guess what I am saying in essence Joyce is that I have recognised what had changed in my own behaviour for the reasons above and now I have taken a deep breath and gone back to the relaxed dog owner that I once was ( not to be confused with complacency ) and Teller is now the dog I always knew she was and born to be, a young, good wholesome shepherd with all the good traits that they are known for. We now live in and for the moments we share together. I am now observant but RELAXED.
    I hope you understand what I am trying to say lol! XXX

    Not quite like that Rob Very Happy I was trying to point out that even the most experienced/knowledgeable owners can get caught up in societies rules/fears without knowing it and at the expense of our dogs Sad and how, just like kids loosing their manners our dogs are doing the same regards their social skills because of owners fears of etc, etc

    i know lyn i was joking lol.
    I know what you mean though, there's so many rules and regulations in place its ruining owning a dog.
    dogs aren't made to follow the misguided views of modern society, they want to hunt and sleep and just be dogs, but it will soon be impossible for them to do this if we keep getting more restrictions slapped on us.

    Thanks for that Lyn. Your statement above rang lots of bells with me. I find I am constantly scanning around on walks so that I can head off potential problems before they occur when infact they might never occur. Maybe I lack the confidence to do otherwise at the moment.
    Met two dogs when Maska was off lead in the woods just now , he saw them both before I did but both times he came back when I called, so we are getting there just more slowly than I had thought.

    I come across so many anti GSD folks even amongst dogs walkers who seem to have endless tales of their dogs being attacked by one. I met a collie owner today who had had the some trouble
    recently. She wanted Maska to get close to her dog to reassure the dog that all big dogs won't attack. They had a good old sniff about and Maska was calm and friendly
    Whether the dogs are really attacked I don't know. I often read of so called bullying in schools and think to myself...that is not really bullying just kids being kids. Maybe it is the same withe the GDS attacks...I don't know
    Thanks for your reply...Smile

    kachinas wrote:Hi all,
    I have someone that has a N.I. cross, that needs to be rehomed asap! :-(
    His name is Whiley, he is 21 mths old, neutered only 3-4 weeks ago, Mother full NI, father half NI hal Malamute.
    He has issues, aggression towards other dogs, does not like being left alone, territorial with furnisher.

    I know this is a long shot, but I said I would try to help.
    I have met this dog, as I did a 1-2-1 with them last week,
    they have another NI, a 6yr old female, who is quite mature and calm,
    however, they work all day, though sometimes they can take the dogs in with them, Whiley is proving to be more than a handful, I feel they are a little too laid back for him as he seemed to me to be a very willful boy. In the right hands I feel he will do well.
    I eel he would be better as an only dog, as he is not bonding with this couple Crying or Very sad
    When I met him, he had little interest in me other than a quick sniff, and he showed no interest in his owners.

    I feel with structure in his life he will do well!





    ive put new page on my website and added whiley to it.

    I know exactly what you mean, I am always on hyper alert because of all the hassle I had with the Field W@nker, also met someone with a lab once (really fat overweight one) who told me all about these '2 huskies' that had 'attacked her dog viciously' a few days ago, that dog didn't have a mark on it, so how it had recovered so quickly from this 'vicious attack' is beyond me, then she was asking where I lived and I told her and then she said 'not number 28' and I said yes, apparently she had been told that my 2 'huskies' were the culprits, further more she had reported me to the police and dog warden, this was again thanks to my old mate the Field W@nker, that is when I stopped taking my dogs where there were other dogs, I go out alone, stay alone whenever possible, and come back alone. I do go training because I understand the need for socialisation, but apart from Kofie and a couple of others I keep away from all dogs, which is a very very sad state of affairs and my dogs have to suffer because of the old man who decided to stalk me and constantly watch me and spread the most amazing tales about us!!! Got my own back in a way though, Sulin Tracker lives a few doors from him, and Kofie a few more doors up, I am gradually surrounding him!!!!
    Had a fantastic walk with them today, went up on the fields down to the bottom fishing lodge, there was a swan on there, not a soul about, and my girls could be dogs and roll in cow poo and generally lark about.

    Yeah I know how dangerous they are and how scared everyone is of them, I am such an irresponsible owner as well Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Not happy with the way I have to live with these vicious animals, but this way no one has any way of accusing us of anything, they never see us!!!!!
