mj, k9's are a little different. kibo bit me several times b4 we worked things out. all these GSDs are alpha. so u kinda have to prove (humanely) who the boss is. once that is over u can then buddy up and bond. i was told it takes a cupla years to get a good k9 team bonded and i found its true. and even tho were a team now, kibo still everynow and then pushes things to see if he can step in and run th show....id rather have him like that then submissive so its all good.
oh and thanks for the welcome. ive been gone awhile.
k, i pat him every day, rain or shine, sick or health, he gets lots of attention....i feed him supper by hand every day.
Nothing is impossible for the person that doesn't have to do it.
