Bolt, Our White German Shepherd Dog

Bolt, our white GSD. He has evolved from a fiesty, headstrong, reactive puppy into a kind, gentle, loyal obedient cuddly dog. He is two years old.
We do obedience training, games tricks & drill classes and we get daily exercise and weekends we do long hikes. I have found the key to a happy healthy GSD is a balance between exercise on and off leash, and training to exercise his mind.
We do only positive absolutely non forceful training. The breeder whom we purchased Bolt from recommended as a pup exerting our dominance over him by holding him down. This created more confusion and distrust and made him reactive.
We got a trainer to come and work with us and with a lot of hard work and dedication we developed a wonderful trusting bond. I have cuddled him since day one even when he wasn't receptive to it, over time he has become the biggest cuddler in our family.
We look forward to many years of love from our GSD. He enriches our lives greatly, I could not imagine any other dog for us. It has not been an easy road by any means, it has required dedication, time and a lot of love. But I wouldn't have it any other way.
