Get this book!!

I have to give the author and the vendor a huge Thank you. German Shepherds are a very easy breed to train however, they can be a handful and can get themselves in trouble as a puppy (e.g. chewing, destroying furniture etc.). This book helped me so much at each stage of his development. The author hits it right on the nose with the timing of what ages they can become difficult. This book gives you great advice that will coach you through all the tough times you might have with your new pup.

This is the most crucial time in training, when they are puppies, so you owe to your sanity and your dog to get this book. Believe me! So many poor dogs go to shelters and get put down simply because the owner didn't learn how to care for the dog. The fact the your reading this proves that you have the dedication it takes to own a dog. Buy this book you won't regret it.

I wish a you new puppy parents the best! It can be difficult, but the joy a German Shepherd can bring to your family once well trained is well worth the effort.

Great reference book for GSD owners.

Ordered several GSD books and puppy/training books, and this by far was the best one for learning what to expect at different developmental stages for a German Shepherd. I've owned big dogs before, but Kona is my first GSD. I'm finding the book well written and extremely helpful. I refer back to it constantly and refresh my memory by re-reading it as my pup reaches each new stage. While there are similarities in raising puppies generally for all breeds, I can tell my GSD is way different from my lab, whom I raised from puppyhood as well. After owning a retriever who instantly knew how to fetch, I had no clue how to teach a dog to actually retrieve! Socializing also seems even more important for the GSD compared to other breeds. The GSDs seems to receive a bad rap, because there are so many dogs who have not been socialized properly from the start. Definitely higher needs in this area than my lab. I'm glad I got this audible book and would recommend to any new GSD owner.

Helpful book!

The info is very useful and well organized. I like the fact that you don't have to listen the whole book at once. The info is broken down by the age of the pup. So if you have a 4 month old pup you can just read that specific section and most of the info about your 4 month old is right there.

Not much said about the GSD breed

The training advices are good for the first time dog owners. Not much was specifically said about German Shepherd breed training, rather than just mention at several places that they are smart and could be bored easily. It would be useful to hear more about different and advanced training options that the GSD owners can explore as well as hearding, agility, tracking etc. All these trainings are fun and aimed to make better bonding b/w the dog and the owner. I also found that pace of reading is a little bit too fast. Overall, I recommend the book to the firs time dog owners.

Helpful

Great insight into all phases of a German Shepherd puppy's life. It's quite helpful to understand why puppies do the things they do based on their surroundings from the time they are born.

I think this is a good guide

I think this is a good guide/bible. It is a bit philosophical for my taste -- as a new puppy owner I almost need a guide that tells me what is critical at week 8-11 and 12-16 and months 5-8 etc and exactly what to do.

This is an excellent listen

This is an excellent listen . It's great if you are considering purchasing or already own a young puppy. It's full of insightful information about the life-cycle, mental states, and behaviors of young dogs. It also includes a lot of practical handling information. The Brittany Boykin are very interesting.

Great book

Great book. Kind of a bit long in birthing stages. If your getting your puppy and not breeding you don't need it. LKisten if your interested. The rest is great information. Some of it was a refresh other parts were a tweek but a few really interesting things that really help. If you take the time and do the work, it works.

Even if you think you know

I thought I knew how to raise a puppy but my newest dog proved to be a real challenge with house training and recall. This book changed my thought process and helped me learn a new way to teach my puppy, with huge improvement in her behavior. I'd recommend to anyone with a new German Shepherd puppy!

Focus on the Practical

Good true story with in-depth information on raising puppies. I found it useful in understanding and helping my adult rescue dog try to overcome some of her issues.
