We love Via. I needed a puppy who will grow into a dog that is (in order of importance to me)
1. Is interested enough in children to work for a child
2. Is not reactive to dogs OR to people
3. Is biddable
4. Is social but not pushy about it
5. Is bold, out going, stable
Basically, I need to raise a bomb proof dog who will work for a child and be a demo dog and bait dog when I am teaching classes or conducting reactive dog workshops.
Several of my dog training friends told me that I am crazy to pick a German Shepherd dog. One even suggested that I get an English-bred golden retriever or lab. I like herding dogs, and GSDs in particular. I also knew just which breeder I’d be getting my puppy from.
Thank you, Julie for sharing her with us.
