Hi Everyone, after months of obedience class, and lots of practice he did it! For a while he had a problem with strange dogs. But he finally realized that he had nothing to be fearful of and acted like a good boy should.

I am so proud of him! He is 10 months old and probably close to 95 pounds. His ears are over our kitchen counters, and the corner guards I put there for my Granddaughter are now there for Ruger. He has bumped his head right about eye level a couple times so he finally left those alone on the corner.(he thought they were a well placed toy)(NOT!)

We are now practicing Rally and next week are going to start some Tracking exercises. I am excited!!! Ruger loves his classes, he learns so quickly, and is so dedicated it is unreal. Maybe I will get a video to load sometime? You have to see it to believe it, how he works, the one steps backward is like we are dancing he is so close to me.

I just love it and him of course! Until next update, take care, and take your puppy to obedience class you will love that you did!

Awesome dog! He is a beauty and intelligent! He looks exactly like my Tasha. I'm not kidding! She passed away 3 years ago at 10 y/o. We adored her.

She was just as beautiful and intelligent. She was also very silly, funny, and loved to talk.We used to call her our "flower child".

She lived to eat and have fun. May you have as many, if not more!, wonderful years together!

Good Boy!

Glad to hear Ruger passed his tests. We are still working with Otto, who tries really hard to be a good boy. He still tends to want to jump as part of a greeting, and will come when I call when he knows I have a favorite treat, but not so much when I don't.

The biggest "problem" with a GSD is that they are so much smarter than we are! I aspire to be able to brag about Otto. He is 18 mos. old, and has been to three levels of obedience classes, and is so much better. But still fine tuning....

Kudos to Ruger! And he is a very beautiful boy!!
