Hey there! My name is Sarah and I have a beautiful 8 week old male German Shepherd puppy named Yuma. We live in Oklahoma (where if the heat doesn't get ya, the wind will!) Yuma is a pain in the butt thus far, so I am hoping that I can find some useful tips and tricks to teach him to behave. His biggest problems so far are: Barking incessantly in his crate at all hours Not minding if he is allowed outside off of his leash And messing in the floor even though he knows to go outside (I understand that he is a puppy and this is natural, but his barking is causing me to lose valued sleep) Although he has these complications, he is a very smart boy. In just two nights he has learned sit, down, paw, sit up, and we are working on stay. So, if you have any suggestions, feel free to state them!
