I am on the engagement stage of my dog. How should I handle my GSD with friends and other dogs?
My GSD won’t play with any of her toys, but only wants attention from me. How do I get her attention off of me and on her toys? Can I use food to train her?
I sit a problem if we choose to raise a pure working dog as a family pet with agility and obedience training rather than for competition? How would we go about this?
How much work can a young dog do without being physically or mentally stressed?
I have a question about training my working puppy to bark. What command should I use? I want to train him for protection work.

I know you should not leave toys with a working dog according to 'Raising a Working Puppy.' Are there any items I can leave with the puppy while in his crate for a hours at a time?
I have a dobe pup that has just started her first heat cycle. All she does is sniff the ground and look everywhere but at me. Is this normal for their first cycle?
I purchased 'How to Raise a Working Puppy.' I want to build their drive; I'm concerned that the 'Drive & Focus' video won't help. What am I not doing? Or what should I be doing?
I need to know the basics on how to get my two pups acclimated to increase their drive and educate myself on how to schutzhund train. What do you recommend from your video line?
