Just found this site while looking for new ideas for dog tricks. What an awesome site!! Im Lexy, Im a single mum of a toddler Riley and have a 1yo GSD Blade. Im studying a science degree full time and also have horses. I go to club obedience training once a week with Blade and we enjoy doing hikes in the hills. I have had Blade 7mths - he was given back to his breeder at 8mths old when some conformation faults meant he wouldnt be a good show dog, and his breeder rehomed him to me when he was 10mths old. I grew up with Labradors - my parents bred them for hunting and had a Lab for my first dog. When he passed, I wanted something different and challenging so decided to look for a GSD. I have trained as a vet nurse and also worked in boarding kennels for 3yrs. Blade is certainly more challenging than a Labrador to train - he isnt particularly food oriented but he is very, very loyal and loves to play and please. My photo is of Blade and Riley a few months ago.
