Angel is a sweet and gorgeous 8 year old female GSD. She is easy to handle in the house. She drinks water frequently – the vet said there is nothing wrong with her in this regard. Angel takes treats very gently. She was not taught commands, but is learning to wait at the top and bottom of stairs. She is also learning to wait to be invited out of the crate and to follow the person either out the door or inside. She is easily corrected, but needs consistent reinforcement. She is also learning to walk on the leash on the left side and to do her business on the grass curbside. She has also learned to wait for her food until the “OK” is given. Again, she may need reminders but is easily corrected.
Angel loves people and kids and likes to be around them. She can be a little mouthy. There has been a lot of improvement with this. She is on medication for arthritis, and she seems to be feeling better since starting it. She loves to be outside and likes to watch what is going on in the neighborhood. Angel is reactive with dogs. She walks fairly well on a haltie, and needs a firm hand to distract her from other dogs. Otherwise, she is easy on the leash. Angel goes for short walks due to the arthritis, and I also try to keep her on grass so her toes can heal. She can get spunky in the backyard, but this does not last very long. She will allow her head, ears, belly, and feet to be touched. However, when she is excited this is more challenging, and she needs to be encouraged to calm down.
Angel does not have accidents in the house. She easily goes into the crate. She does not mess with her blanket other than to rearrange it for comfort. She does not chew it.
