Anonymous:Hello all dog lovers! I have a question about my 10 month old German Shepherd. The problems is that he is too amicable and kind with strangers! He's smart and knows simple commands, but when unknown people come - no reaction at all! I've met in instructor and he said that if I want my dog to be agressive and to know the "bite" command, it will be necessary to beat it. I got upset very much... but what can I do? To keep a big Shepherd as a perfoming house dog? But this breed's role is to guard and protect... and he does neither. How can I train him to bark at strangers? Thanks for any advice.
It is said that big dogs are actually much more friendly than small ones. Because small ones have to bluff since they have no advantages on the body types
Anonymous:You cant imagine how lucky you are. I wouldn't really be concerned about that. Right now he is just a puppy. He will know what to do when he grows older. Most shepherds will never be aggressive when you are around and some might not even show aggression to strangers when they are home alone. So dont worry and be happy with your dog the way he is.
AnonymousI've met in instructor and he said that if I want my dog to be agressive and to know the "bite" command, it will be necessary to beat it.How on earth did this person become a dog trainer or an instructor? Beating a dog is very inhumane because a dog cant talk cant really tell you how it feels about himself about the life he is living. That is just a poor animal who looks at you for everything. Dogs teach you self control. Get that instructor arrested.
