|This is going to be a fairly large dog. Start treating her like one now.
No sofa, or other furniture either. You are letting her push you around!
Put her on the floor. When she gets pushy, put a leash on her and take her for a nice long walk.
When she puts her mouth on you, say, "NO!" loud, sharp and deep. Immediately stand up, fold your arms and move toward her, one step should be enough. Then ignore her, walk away. Wait a minute then go back to where you were. Three strikes and she is out, time for a time out in the crate.
Good friends of mine just brought home a free, show quality German Shepherd. The former owner let it get away with everything because he 'WAS' a cute, sweet puppy. Then he hit adolescence and it all went bad. They had to get rid of the dog they spent thousands of dollars to buy. They cried because they loved the puppy he used to be. With my guidance, we will fix the dog, but it never had to get like this.
Don't let this be your story!!!
Rules, limits and get to classes so you know how to communicate without hurting your dog or spoiling her.
