Edge thanks for the advice. She knows how to do things. I really think the pecking order tips. Her major issues are chewing, the bitter apple isn't bitter to her, and yanking my stuff like shoe laces, socks, glasses, pens only my stuff. Oh she's stubborn and not mean at all and beyond energetic she likes walks, parks, rides. When she's sick, she acts like a calm puppy. She's umm... ...She's a full fledge puppy. The hierarchy info is especially helpful thank you again.
Oh with the shepherd thing...I use the alternate breed name for the white shepherds, American shepherd, because they can't compete. Both are better than how she looks like a fox, wolf, or coyote, because of the solid coat. It's funny how they are extra alert toward other shepherds.
Welcome again to AS and hope you find the forum as helpful and supportive as I have, even for recently finding this forum. and
