Could be right! We took him to PaH for it because you can open the packets and try them on. His head is deceiving in that it's finer than it looks, so standard GSD sizes are too big for him.

I wish, Trigger had more opportunity to play with other large dogs. Every time I walk him down the Clyde and we find a dog he can be let off with another smaller pesky one tips up and if there's one thing Trigger doesn't like is pesky dogs that invade his space without his permission, especially smaller males. He doesn't have any intention to hurt (yet) but for the other dogs owners it looks that way (few of them can tell a normal telling off from aggression) and a large growling dog always seems to be the loser these days.
The other thing is that he is more of a dog on dog rough play type (playing with other GSDs or bull breeds is great for him cos they tend to play rough, too, and don't yelp as soon as it's getting a bit wilder) and gets stressed out in a larger group.
I guess, it's just his personality. I've always socialised him from puppyhood with all kind of dogs, but to be honest I'm ok now with him not getting on with every dog he meets but on the other hand being the friendliest dog when it comes to all kinds of people. I think that's more important to me.
It was great, honestly.

When we first got Skye he wasn't as aggressive to other dogs, but he just didn't understand 'dog language' and if a dog was too friendly he would snap at it and if he saw a dog he would run over to it and literally just bulldoze into it and knock it over, so any attempts to socialise him with my friends' dogs just didn't work.

I agree I'd rather have him dog aggressive than people aggressive though and I was pleased to see that he went up to people and accepted their fusses, as that doesn't often happen when we're out - people tend to avoid us!

We took little Hudson to Brighton today to enjoy the nice weather, got stopped every 5 mins by people wanting to cuddle and fuss him. We met some nice doggies and some not so nice dogs!

Buster's just got the best xmas prezzie ever from a friend of mine. He's ball obsessed, so she bought him a big dustbin full of tennis balls! He actually unwrapped it himself, bit off all the wrapping paper and spat it out and then pulled the lid off and wallowed around in a sea of balls!! lol She did get a video of it, so if I can get her to send me it I'll put it up.

I'm now working on teaching him his next trick, picking up tennis balls and putting them all away in the bin!! So far it's going okay, he can put the balls away, but gets them straight back out again...

We saw an older akita pup today on the beach. Nightmare owners. It was on a long lead, then permitted to lunge on top of every dog it could reach

With all this GSD talk...





My in laws old male, a huge beast in the end but such a sweet dog to me...he loved me!

In the days of me courting my wife 15 odd years ago and staying round her parents place I'd have him trying to 'break down' the door so that he could sleep with us, I couldn't move for him trying to sit on me and become really protective when trying to leave. Other family members got a much different response from him.



Even after not seeing him for the best part of a few years straight away I had an 8 stone fatty trying to sit on me from the get go.





Such a beauty but the shedding!

Haha promise that wasn't mine he is only 12 weeks and on a normal lead. He does like to bop dogs on the head with his paws although I am sure that's just him playing.

Have to agree with you there Mel!!

And still on the subject of GSD - this is very true!
